A new trailer was released for the game, introducing the characters Azura, Galil, and Renzo:

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Atlus:

One thousand years ago, Daemons invaded the world of Humans

They subjugated Humanity and created the Great Barrier to separate the realms. The world was thrown into upheaval, and the Dark Current was born. It carved a cross-shaped swath across the ocean, swallowing countless cities in its wake. Humanity was decimated. Hundreds of years later, Daemons rule atop a hierarchical society. However, the time for resistance has come. The world is about to change yet again…

Crafted by Legendary Talent

With writing by Yoshitaka Murayama, game design by Kyoji Koizumi, a vision realized by director Masataka Matsuura, and a stunning score delivered by acclaimed composer Masashi Hamauzu, players will experience the nostalgia delivered by these JRPG greats. With gorgeous world exploration, an intertwining story involving nine memorable characters, and strategic, turn-based gameplay mechanics, players won’t want to miss this return to JRPG excellence.

Built on a sprawling world replete with numerous secrets to discover, players will need to establish and unite guilds throughout the four realms while battling the Daemons. Use the “Ignition” system, a part of the turn-based combat that allows for deep customization and nuanced gameplay, to reach an enhanced state and deliver devastating Final Strikes. In The Alliance Alive, players will need to keep their wits about them and think strategically to win each fight!

The Alliance Alive is launching in both North America and Europe sometime in early 2018.

    The backgrounds look so faded, the characters pop up during conversations.

  • alterku

    I’m getting a polished phone game vibe from the visuals. After it releases I’ll take a closer look.

  • totenglocke

    It’s a sequel to the 3DS game Legend of Legacy.

  • alterku

    I know mate. It wasn’t very good so I’m even less enthusiastic than I might otherwise have been.

  • Fandangle

    LoL was great. What are you on?

  • alterku

    Unsubstantiated subjective opinion followed by suggestion of drug abuse. From what I saw it wasn’t my kind of RPG: After I did the research on release whether I thought it was worth a purchase I remember so little about it presently that it’s not worth any further thought to me.

    The story was minimal yeah, but the gameplay is so by far superior to most RPGs that come out these days. Turn based combat is pretty much a dead art that still hasn’t been perfected, just moved away from. LoL added a lot of conveniences that helped speed up the process and had a TON of fun difficulty behind it. The way characters obtained skills was pretty great too, any character could potentially fall into a mold or shift into a new mod at any given time and it actually made grinding somewhat fun as it encouraged you to battle more powerful enemies for a better chance a unlocking a skill instead of fighting the same weaker ones over and over and over again. The magic system is also pretty great with a really amazing variety in magical skills. The same can be said for weapons and weapons skills too. The map making mechanic was under utilized though, and there wasn’t enough to do in the town in general despite its size but those are minor nitpicks at best.

    The game was incredibly solid and really great. I read a bunch of comments passing the game up telling me it was average and I went into it expecting a really average game and I was honestly surprised at how great it was, I’ve spent around 50 hours in it and I definitely got my moneys worth from it. It’s underrated as balls.

    Direct Sequel, or spiritual sequel?
