JRPG fans, 2018 is a time of glorious riches. The Radiant Historia revamp came out last week, Ni No Kuni II is right around the corner, and now Atlus USA is prepping FURYU Corporation’s The Alliance Alive for on March 27.
Written by Yoshitaka Murayama (you might have heard of another little game series that he created that goes by the name of Suikoden), The Alliance Alive takes place is a world that has been invaded by daemons, resulting in reality being split into five separate realms by a mysterious force called Dark Current. The player must gather a team of nine characters and journey between the Rain Realm, Burning Realm, Caged Realm, Snow Realm and Crystal Realm in an attempt to defeat the daemons, remove the Dark Current, and restore the world.
With classic RPG gameplay, including an intricate turn-based battle system, seven weapon types, and a variety of vehicles that the team can use to explore the world, The Alliance Alive looks like it will be rich with the sort of golden-age RPG goodness that fans can’t get enough of.
The Alliance Alive is available for pre-order now for $39.99. Like Radiant Historia, the launch edition comes with a lot of goodies, including a soundtrack CD, an art book, and a cool little keychain.
