Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven
Sometimes one's path is chosen by fate. Luchs is one such soul, whose peaceful innkeeping days were numbered once he discovered a bracelet known as “Lachryma.” Suddenly accosted by strange fiends, he’s saved by a mysterious faerie encased in crystal whose memories are spotty at best. Luchs decides to help her recover these memories and, in doing so, encounters numerous other faeries just like her, each wielding unique powers and remembering a little more about their storied pasts as the entourage grows.
Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven boasts a unique strategic battle system which encourages players to aim their attacks just right in order to "bowl" over as many enemies as possible with a single strike. Players can also turn the tide of battle by crafting new skills with unique items obtainable through StreetPass registration and participation in Free Battles.
With adjustable difficulty levels during gameplay and a fast-forward feature to help speed through cutscenes for battle-hungry players, the customizable experience on offer here promises to leave lasting memories, complemented by in-game movie and art galleries that allow players to review key dramatic moments at will. This title will launch in the spring, and has been rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.
