Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology Western Release Dates Set for February 2018

Atlus has announced the western release dates for Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology.

The newly updated Nintendo 3DS RPG will launch on February 13th in the Americas and February 16th in Europe. Featured above, you can view a new “Time Travel” trailer for the game.

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

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology – It’s been six years since Radiant Historia was released on Nintendo DS in 2011, but it’s time to return to Vainqueur and unlock the time traveling power of the White Chronicle once again in Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology. This beloved classic is an expanded Nintendo 3DS port of the original game that will contain a great deal of added gameplay/story content, updated presentation, and new ways to experience the adventure!

Key Features:

  • An Enhanced Retelling of the Original – You’ll once again take the reins of Alistel operative Stocke as he unlocks the power of the White Chronicle relic and gains the ability to travel between two alternate timelines. With his new-found powers, Stocke will need to right the wrongs of the past in order to prevent the total annihilation of the world. This time though, things are a bit different. Redesigned character art, new character voice-overs, a brand-new opening animation by A-1 Pictures, new theme song, event illustrations, five new tracks from original composer Yoko Shimomura, and additional difficulty settings will enhance the experience in this fresh take of a beloved story.
  • Exhilarating New Story Content– Stocke will now encounter a mysterious new character named Nemesia who will teach him more about his world’s history and unlock a third timeline to explore the ripple effect of some of his actions with episodic “what-if” scenarios. If you’re a Radiant Historiapurist who simply wants to play through the original game’s story, we have you covered! Perfect Chronology offers two different modes: Append and Perfect. Append mode allows you to beat the original game before having the option to start a NewGame+ with the added content, while Perfect mode lets you play through the game with the inclusion of the third timeline from the beginning.
  • A Classic That Can’t Be Missed – Even though there’s an abundance of expanded content to delve into, the heart and soul of Radiant Historia remains the same. If you missed out on the original game in 2011, the upcoming port is the perfect chance to play a modern classic. With an exciting positioning-based battle system, memorable characters, and thrilling time-travel mechanics, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology is an essential for JRPG fans.

    I wish it was on Switch.

  • Exhilarating in italian means that it provokes a lot of laughter. lol

    Yup, Atlus would benefit greatly from having all their 3DS releases on there, in order to build up an audience for SMT V. I’d gladly spend money on this stuff if it all were on one device, but as things are I’d be more inclined to just emulate them all instead.

    And on a similar note, as I said before, Nintendo would also benefit from making their platform the go-to one for everything Atlus.

    You realize any 3DS games coming out after the Switch launched were already really far along in development, right?

  • Nagato

    Most development here was already done on the original DS, and none of the games involved would be particularly complicated to port over either.

    I kept meaning to play this on DS but I never did so I’ll try this I guess.
