The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered Arrives Early 2024

NIS America has revealed The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered is coming to PlayStation 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime in early 2024. As you have likely deduced, this is an HD remaster of The Legend of Legacy. What is that? It’s an under-the-radar Nintendo 3DS RPG that came out somewhat late in the system’s lifespan.

Atlus held publishing rights for the original version, but The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered is all NIS. The Legend of Legacy shares a developer—Cattle Call—with The Alliance Alive, another late-era 3DS game that, similarly, got the remaster treatment for PS4 and Switch not too long ago. (It’s also on PC, iOS, and Android now.) I’m guessing that re-release did well enough to justify The Legend of Legacy HD Remastered, which I consider a tougher sell due to some pretty esoteric, SaGa-esque mechanics in the original. Of course, there were literally SaGa veterans involved in its development.

Further, NIS America shared the following synopsis:

Discovered ten years ago, the island of Avalon is shrouded in mystery. It is said the continent was forged by the gods and elementals, and is home to many fabled treasures with immense powers. Numerous brave souls have attempted to venture and investigate the lands of Avalon. Will you be next?

Follow the stories of seven upcoming heroes as they descend upon the untrodden lands to fulfill their unique desires. Each of them have their own individual skills and stories to tell.

Take part in an epic journey unlike any other!
