Fans of The Legend of Legacy rejoice: Atlus is bringing developer FURYU's latest title, The Alliance Alive, to Nintendo 3DS in the Americas and Europe early next year!

The Alliance Alive FURYU Atlus 3DS

If you're a little rusty on our previous coverage of the title, Atlus explains the origins of the game and details thusly:

With writing by Yoshitaka Murayama, a vision realized by director Masataka Matsuura, beautiful game designs from Kyoji Koizumi 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.

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...

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 released in Japan this past June, and will be available as both a physical and digital release in the Americas, and a digital release in Europe. So far, Atlus has only offered an "early 2018" release window, but we'll keep you updated when they reveal more specifics!

Until then, check out the game's first English trailer:
