UPDATE (02-13-18 2:50 PM):

Atlus announced today that to celebrate the release of Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, fans can download a new Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology 3DS theme for free. The "Chibi Theme" is now available in the Americas in the Nintendo Theme Shop.


Although everyone agrees that the Nintendo Switch is the new hotness (and I'm no exception), the 3DS still has a lot of life in it. I’m prepping to travel for work next week, and I can’t bring myself to toss that $300 Switch into my carry-on bag to get clanged around on a cross-country trip. My 3DS folds in half, protecting itself, and it doesn’t have any removable parts that might snap off. Its self-contained nature makes it perfect for travel, and it easily fits in a pocket when not in use.

My 3DS is about to get a little sweeter. To me, handheld systems are basically JRPG machines, and one of the finest JRPGs ever is getting a tune-up with the release of Atlus GamesRadiant Historia: Perfect Chronology on 3DS tomorrow. The 2010 DS original (see our review here) has long been considered a classic in JRPG circles, often garnering comparisons to Chrono Trigger (the holiest of holies). While that comparison is legitimate due to the shared time-travel dynamic in both games, Radiant Historia is no knock off. It has a great, deep story and battle system all its own.

Check out some of the features of the new, upgraded version:

  • Redesigned character art
  • New character voice-overs
  • Brand-new opening animation
  • New theme song
  • Event illustrations
  • Five new tracks from original composer Yoko Shimomura
  • Additional difficulty settings

I played the original way back in 2010, and I’m anxious to revisit the continent of Vainqueur, and once again tamper with the forces of time.
