The Nintendo 3DS has become well known as a treasure trove of Japanese RPGs over the years, and on October 13th it will be getting yet another with the American release of the Legend of Legacy. With the game less than a week away Atlus has unveiled a short final launch trailer for the game, showcasing its story, gameplay and characters.

The Legend of Legacy was developed by FuRyu, a Japanese studio that previously worked on a number of anime tie-ins, and Grezzo, well known for their work on the 3DS Zelda titles. Some employees of Square-Enix also worked on the game, such as the writer of both Chrono titles and the composer of Final Fantasy XIII.

While the game does share a few things in common with the likes of Bravely Default, it does set itself apart in a number of ways. For starters, it’s possible to experience the story from seven different perspectives, with the main protagonist being chosen by the player at the start of their journey. The progression of the game is also distinctly non-linear, with the player being encouraged to explore the world and discover things at their own pace.

Atlus have stated that its localization of The Legend of Legacy will also feature various tweaks and re-balancing, working from the feedback the Japanese release received back in January of this year.

Unfortunately, whilst the game will be releasing in the U.S. next week, European gamers may have a much longer wait in store, with NIS America simply giving a vague Q1 2016 release window for the region.
