The Japanese studio FuRyu, who developed the Atlus published titles The Legend of Legacy and The Alliance Alive has announced that it will “temporarily suspend” its games business outside of titles already invested in, according to FuRyu president and CEO Takashi Mishima, who shared the info via the latest shareholder report:
The Alliance Alive
Atlus has released a demo for their upcoming The Alliance Alive game on the 3DS, the demo is now live on the North American eshop. The Alliance Alive is being done by the same team (Cattle Call) that made The Legend of Legacy, which we reviewed and thought it was just alright. While it seems that Nintendo and other developers are moving development onto the Nintendo Switch, Atlus still has at least four titles being released for Nintendo 3DS this year.
For European fans, you will be able to download the demo on March 1st. The Alliance Alive hits physical and digital on March 27, 2018.
Atlus USA just released the new trailer above to announce that they will be bringing the “new classic RPG” by FuRyu studio’s (The Legend of Legacy) The Alliance Alive to the West. The game is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS.
The idea behind it being a “new classic RPG” is that the team took traditional RPG ideas and rebuild them for modern tastes. The story will have you and other humans going up against the authority of Amodians who have ruled over the world of hundreds of years. The world will be split into several zones where you will interact with unique cultures. The game even has nine playable characters and from what I gather has a similar art style to the team’s last game The Legend of Legacy.
I personally picked up The Legend of Legacy on launch because I liked the art style it was going for and wasn’t all that impressed with the game. It was just alright. I hope The Alliance Alive is a lot better.
