"Discover the story of a lost land."

We may be racing towards the inevitable end of the Nintendo Switch, but that doesn’t mean the inevitable end of intriguing releases for Nintendo’s 6½-year-old system. Especially if you’re a JRPG fan. Adding to a string of forthcoming Switch releases, NIS America has announced an early 2024 release of The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered.

Originally developed by Cattle Call and released for Nintendo 3DS in 2015, The Legend of Legacy allows players to take charge of seven adventurers as they explore the mysterious land of Avalon while pursuing their own unique journeys.

Discovered ten years ago, the island of Avalon is shrouded in mystery. It is said the continent was forged by the gods and elementals, and is home to many fabled treasures with immense powers. Numerous brave souls have attempted to venture and investigate the lands of Avalon. Will you be next?

Follow the stories of seven upcoming heroes as they descend upon the untrodden lands to fulfill their unique desires. Each of them have their own individual skills and stories to tell. Manage battle formations and instruct specific combat roles to develop the upper hand in battle and seize victory, and utilize the ancient power of the elementals by forging contracts mid-battle to call down powerful skills. Take part in an epic journey unlike any other!

The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered will feature:

  • Legendary Storytelling: Illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi, renowned composer Masashi Hamauzu, writer Masato Kato, game designer Kyoji Koizumi, and Masataka Matsuura all come together to create a one-of-a-kind adventure.
  • Seven Heroic Journeys: Each character in The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered has a unique motivation for exploring Avalon, as well as an individual conclusion at the story’s resolution. Play through as each character to see how the separate tales unfold.
  • Combat Innovation: Battle enthusiasts can discover a new level of challenge during combat by using formations and stances to assign flexible combat roles instead of fixed classes.

To clarity that final bullet, characters can take on attack, guard, or support stances in battle, and level up accordingly. So, how you tend to use them will determine whether they grow into a tank, a fighter, a healer, or a more well-rounded unit.

The core developers of The Legend of Legacy would go on to release Alliance Alive—another 3DS JRPG that was remastered for Nintendo Switch.

In addition to the digital release, The Legend of Legacy will be available in a limited physical edition that features a soundtrack CD, character cards, an art book, and more. Preorders are now open.
