XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced the long-awaited release of strategy RPG adventure Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system. All retail units in the game’s first print run come packaged with a bonus original soundtrack CD, featuring high-quality recordings of all 28 in-game background tracks. Yoshifumi Hashimoto, creative mastermind behind the acclaimed and long-running Bokujo Monogatari and Rune Factory series, including the recently released STORY OF SEASONS, was directly involved in the game’s production and creative vision.
Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven begins with a young innkeeper, Luchs, whose peaceful innkeeping days became numbered once he discovered a bracelet known as “Lachryma.” Suddenly accosted by strange fiends, he’s saved by a mysterious faerie encased in crystal whose memories are spotty at best. Luchs decides to help her recover these memories and, in doing so, encounters numerous other faeries just like her, each wielding unique powers and remembering a little more about their storied pasts as the entourage grows.
Featuring tactical roleplaying gameplay, Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven boasts a unique strategic battle system which encourages players to aim their attacks just right in order to “bowl” over as many enemies as possible with a single strike. Players can also turn the tide of battle by crafting new skills with unique items obtainable through StreetPass™ feature and participation in Free Battles. With adjustable difficulty levels during gameplay and a fast-forward feature to help speed through cutscenes for battle-hungry players, the customizable experience offered in Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven promises to leave lasting memories, complemented by in-game movie and art galleries that allow players to review key dramatic moments at will.
Developed in Japan by Marvelous Inc., and published in North America by XSEED Games, Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven is now available exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in physical format packaged with a bonus original soundtrack CD (only included with first print-run copies) at participating retailers, and in digital format in the Nintendo eShop, with both editions retailing for $39.99. Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven has been rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB in North America.
