Yes, Atlus is bringing Radiant Historia to North America and the Nintendo DS game should be in stores before the Nintendo 3DS arrives. Atlus is shooting for a February release.
Radiant Historia is a project developed with ex-Radiata Stories staff and members from the Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey team. In the game, players travel through time and alter events to prevent a world calamity. Stock, the main character, gains this power after he is captured during a battle with the warring land Granorg. Naturally, Radiant Historia has multiple endings.
During battle, Radiant Historia places heroes and monsters on a grid. Players can set up combo attacks depending on the turn order and the position of enemies. But, you don’t have to fight enemies either. You can see foes on the field and use skills to slip by them undetected.
Update: North American copies have one of Atlus’ spoils. Launch copies include a music CD with songs from composer Yoko Shimomura. Radiant Historia is slated for February 22, 2011.
