Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is being localized for release in North America, and Xseed have published a blog post with a few tidbits about the game’s localization and story. Here’s a summary of the story as described in the blog post:
Lord of Magna features Luchs Eduard, a young man who whose family has been running the Famille Inn for generations. Unfortunately, they haven’t had a single guest stay at the inn since its foundation, but Luchs takes it all in stride and eagerly awaits the day when the inn will be bustling with people. He’s got a big heart, and firmly stands by the family motto that’s been passed down from father to son: “When our cherished guests finally arrive, think of them as nothing less than family.”
Because there are no guests to think of as family, however, Luchs makes a living by excavating and selling the most valuable fuel source around: crystals. It’s during one of his routine excavations that he encounters a young faerie, Charlotte, sleeping inside of a massive crystal, as well as a bracelet with mysterious powers called the “Lachryma.” It’s unfortunate for Charlotte that her memories are a little foggy, but she’s just as fortunate that Luchs happened to be the one who found her—he’s not the type to turn down someone in need, and she could use all the help she can get on the quest to recover her memories.
Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is a strategy RPG developed by the team behind Rune Factory after they were absorbed into Marvelous, following the bankruptcy of their own studio, Neverland Co. It’s headed to North America this Spring.
