MegaTen Team Members Leading Radiant Historia Development

imageWhile Radiant Historia has some of the Radiata Stories team such as character artist Hiroshi Koishi, many of the key team members are fresh off Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey.


Mitsuru Hirata, one of the field planners on Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, is the director of Radiant Historia. Tatsuya Watanabe, the other Strange Journey field planner, is handling Radiant Historia’s field planning. Kenichi Takamori is another Strange Journey staffer. He worked on demon fusing before and is an event planner in Radiant Historia.


This game’s battle planner is Sawao Kato who also worked as a battle planner on Persona 3 and Persona 4. Daisuke Yajima also worked with the Persona series. He was a programmer on Persona 4 and Persona 3 Portable. He’s also doing programming for Radiant Historia.


Atlus main series is Shin Megami Tensei so this shouldn’t be too surprising to see some overlapping, but it will be interesting to see what elements these team members bring to a spiritual successor of Radiata Stories.

    Time traveler rpg!
    I think games have a lot more interesting stories then movies,but,People only wants what is on the big screen.

      I think that applies to games as well. I seen plenty of people on multiple gaming sites disregard a game simply because it was on a handheld and not on a big screen (i.e. a console that uses a TV).Just an observation. We all have our preferences.

        I agree!

        And I noticed that in japan portable games are much more common then console’s.

        IMO,I prefer console’s because I don’t have to charge the battery after each an hour.

  • Ah, beautiful! Totally looking for ward to it even more now

  • Jaxx-Leviathan
