Forbidden Magna Gets Its First Screenshots, And It Looks Cute


Famitsu have released the first screenshots of Forbidden Magna, the upcoming Nintendo 3DS strategy RPG from the developers of Rune Factory. Details on the game can be found in our previous report on it.


Forbidden Magna’s battle system is reminiscent of Valkyria Chronicles, in that your characters will not be locked to a grid.


Outside battle, you’ll run an inn with the help of a number of female companions in the game, and you’ll be able to improve your relationship levels with them in order to improve their abilities during battle. Three of these companions, who are supposedly spirits of some sort, have been revealed so far. That’s them below.

Forbidden Magna is currently 50% through development. The game doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will be released sometime in 2014.
