The Legend of Legacy (JP) is an RPG for the Nintendo 3DS developed by Furyu in conjunction with staff members who worked for Square Enix and Level-5 in the past. The game is in many ways, inspired by the Romancing SaGa games. Atlus became the publisher for North America.
The game is a spiritual sequel to the SaGa series. While many games in the genre are rather sequential in their progression. The player is given an indistinct goal from the start, which is to explore the game and to assess where to go from there.
The game starts in the island of Avalon, a holy land recently awakened from a period of sleep. The player chooses from seven playable characters, including Meurs, an Elementalist; Bianca, a girl with amnesia; Liber, a treasure hunter; Garnet, a knight for the church; Owen, a mercenary; Eloise, an alchemist; and Filmia, a frog prince.
The game was first mentioned in early September 2014, with a teaser site that referred to a "Project Legacy". The game was later officially revealed as The Legend of Legacy on September 17, 2014.
The game was announced as a Nintendo 3DS game scheduled for release on January 22, 2015. The game was originally a Japanese only game, although Electronic Gaming Monthly named the game as a presumable localization candidate for XSEED Games, due to their release of another 3DS role-playing video game, Unchained Blades.
However, in June 2015, it was revealed that Atlus would be publishing the game in North America. Atlus also said the game would receive some gameplay tweaks and rebalancing based on fan feedback from the Japanese release.
Upon reveal, many journalists favorably compared the game's chibi art style to Bravely Default. It has a score of 67% on Metacritic. Hardcore Gamer awarded it a score of 3.5 out of 5, saying "how old school you like your RPGs will ultimately be the deciding factor on whether or not this is a must-own."
The game was one of the best selling games for FuRyu, selling 53,974 in its first week. Famitsu gave the game a 34 (9/8/9/8) out of 40.
