Mystic Chronicles Headed to PSP and PS VITA!


Natsume Inc., a developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, today officially revealed that its upcoming PlayStationNetwork title, Mystic Chronicles, has gone gold. Developed by Kemco, the game became a popular classic in Japan and will be landing in North America this summer.  With its retro-style graphics, story-driven quests, and a turn-based battle system, Natsume is launching the digital version for both PSP and PS Vita on July 16th for a suggested retail price of $14.99.

“Mystic Chronicles is a perfect fit for fans of retro 16-bit RPGs,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume.  “The game offers tons of customization to players, with the guild, workshop, and unique Guardian Beast system, along with a cast full of intriguing and adorable characters.”

One of the most fantastic features in the game will be Mystic Chronicles’ Guardian Beast system. This gameplay feature will have the player assigning a godlike beast to each character, and setting its AI to offensive, defensive, or healing. With a variety of Guardian Beasts to pair among your party members, picking your favorite is a difficult quest in itself!

Mystic Chronicles is the story of a cryptic youth, Lux, adopted by a small village. Lux has just started his training to join the Holos Guild, a society devoted to exterminating the world of rebels.  However, meeting with a young girl begins a series of events that sets Lux on a far more serious quest than just defeating ornery forest creatures! Could Lux possibly become the savior of the entire world?!
