    As many already know, this is a remake of a DS game released about 7 years ago. For newcomers that love RPG games, I would totally recommend this new version over the original DS since it's improved in many ways (it has voice acting, more save slots, the graphics look better, and there's new content/sidequests/a new character). For those that already played the original, there's still fun to be had in this remake; mainly the extra content/sidequest/new character; and it's in my opinion, a good reason to revisit this game! I'm 10 hours into it and loving it (even more than the first time I played it). Also, I would like to note that the original localization effort done by Atlus when the DS game was released was great; but this time it was taken one step further with the voice acting; which is pretty good and compliments well the work done earlier. Additionally, keep in mind that the launch copies come with a nice cardboard box, an artbook, and decal artwork that includes the characters of the game. So I would recommend getting your copy while supplies last if you want to get those. If you haven't tried the game before and you're hesitant if this game will be your cup of tea, there's a free demo in the Nintendo eShop; and you can transfer your progress to the real game if you decide to buy it (which I did).

    I just bought this game on 2/19/2018!! Will have to give kudos to Atlus for picking up this game and remaking it for the newer system. Game comes along with new additional contents, DLC, art and more! For those who are purchasing the limited "launch" edition, an artbook and sticker sheet are included which are package inside the box. Friendly mode makes it easy for new players to enjoy game which helps focus more on the story vs normal and hard mode. For those who have played this game before, you're welcome to play the append mode which have additional stories or re-visit the original story line with updated graphics and voicing! Def. a must have JRPG game! Advice: if you're not sure if the game is right for you, you may dl the demo on the DS shop! The demo version allows you to save your progress onto your SD card which you may transfer /load the file onto the full version (when purchase) and OH! in demo they give some freebie in game healing items too.. so even if you plan on buying the full game, PLAY DEMO ANYWAY! :)))))

    I wanted this long before it's release. I love this edition so much that I bought 2! The art book and decals are awesome. If you love Atlus as much as I do then do yourself the favor of buying this. It has a new character named Nemesia, added gameplay, added story content, redesigned character art, new character voice overs and music from the original composer Yoko Shimomura. It features 2 modes perfect and append. With append you are able to play the original game before starting a new game with all the AWESOME added content. With perfect mode you begin the game with the added content from the beginning. Anyone that has any interest in jrpg's needs this in their collection. If you're new to jrpg's I definitely recommend starting with this because your first experience with jrpg's should be memorable, beautiful, fun and authentic.

    Solid JRPG

    The story is tight and captivating, the game does not rely too much on classic cliche, and the battle system is simple but with enough depth to play around. The time travel system is easy to grasp and become second nature pretty quickly even if I have to say you can get a bit lost trying to found out exactly the quest you want, or looking back for certain thing. The difficulty is on the lower side for Atlus title so don't hesitate to play on hard or maybe deadly. +Music is good +Story is captivating, despite being political fiction non-stop. +Character are likable +battle system is easy to grasp -Rather short for JRPG -poor environment, low effort graphic for a remaster. -Repetitive area, you won't explore a lot of new places

    A great RPG by one of the industry's best (Atlus). It's very nice that the Launch Edition comes with extras (art book and decals in a dvd sized box) while costing the same as the average 3DS game. The decals are of decent size. The art book isn't hard covered, instead it's that type where if the cover is opened too far it'll stay open. The illustrations are wonderful. The book details the characters and settings and is 38 pages long.

    As a long time fan of the original game, I am happy to say that this remake or remaster [more like the latter] is just as fantastic. The only thing I think I disliked was the redesign for the characters, but thankfully there is dlc you can get that changes it back to the original artwork. Gorgeous story, beautiful musical pieces, the characters have a surprising amount of depth and humanity to them [esp for a jrpg], I highly recommend this.

    New Wave Nastolgia

    I’ve only played a few hours into the game but the fact that it deals with time travel and having the option to change it reminds me of Chrono Trigger. It puts me in a state of nastolgia. The voice acting is great and the pixel art is even better. The combat is turned based and allows you to perform combos for higher damage and xp. Did I mention this version came with an art book and stickers!

    While I have yet to crack into this version of the game, which from what I've read isn't too different from it's first release, Radiant Historia remains one of my top RPGs of recent years. Excellent storytelling, fun battle system, down to earth characters and an excellent soundtrack. I can't wait to start over again. The launch edition goodies are nice, but no sample CD feels like a missed opportunity.
