@PiribroH Very few Atlus games go to Europe. Atlus doesn't have a distribution branch in EU so they tend to stay in NA unless another publisher decides to bring it over. I don't know of any plans for another publisher to bring Radiant Historia to the EU. You can always import it online though.

Small word of warning, this game is not for the meek. Unlike 95% of RPG's made of the last ten years you can't just hit mindlessly go through battles hitting attack and throwing in the occasional spell. You really have to think out a strategy, even on minion battles ....... or you will die! It starts off harmless enough but once you are nice and familiar with the battle system half way through the game, they bring the heat and they bring it hard!

I find the difficulty to be challenging and refreshing but others might find it frustrating and be turned off. Especially as spoiled as most current RPG's have everyone. Just a warning. =)

This is my favorite DS game ever — the only others that even come close are Final Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger. Absolutely fantastic. Get it.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

I wanna get this game just for the soundtrack. I've been listening to tunes on Youtube all day, and the soundtrack is incredible!

Was it made by Ancient by any chance? :p

I'll look this up too.

Is it as hard as FFIV on the DS? Cuz that game was hella hard, and if its that hard, then consider me turned off.

But if the difficulty is more like FFVI or Chrono Trigger, then I can probably manage. :)

It's about CT level, yeah. Battles aren't random which makes avoiding enemies easier when you need too. Starts out pretty easy too. Plus it's not cheap hard, it's legit hard. :3

You can't mash your way through battles at all. You've gotta strategize at the beginning of every battle, which is incredibly refreshing.

"the last ten years" part seems completely unnecessary unless spending days grinding is somehow a strategy.

Any Europeans importing this? Know any good websites? It's been ages since I tried to import anything so I could use some help. Videogamesplus.ca is basically the cheapest I could find, it's €32 with shipping, which seems reasonable.

I've imported this from Play-Asia. I think it cost about $40 or something with the bonus CD. Now I just have to wait. :(

@tealovertoma Play-Asia is pretty much the go-to site for imports worldwide. It's based on Hong Kong. They may even do free shipping to Australia since I know they do it for a lot of Asian countries. (Happy happy joy joy! :))

Unless Atlus prints another run this game has hit rare status. Amazon jacked the price up $55 for a new copy. O.O

Hah I just came here to post this. Very awesome. I looked it up on VGChartz and it looks like they shipped 100,000 copies. Hope it gets a reprint, it deserves to sell in the millions (won't happen though). :3

I'm confused, so far the male characters don't look more like girls than the female characters, the art style isn't blatant anime anime desu kawaii baka and there isn't bullcrap melodrama that stupid people pretend makes a good story. You sure it's a JRPG?

Just so I can avoid doing unneccesary time backtracking, does switching from one timeline to the other happen a ton of times or are there times where you can just do like half of one timeline before getting stuck? Because if it's the former I don't want to force myself to go back and forth between timelines if it's gonna make me do that a lot anyway.

Usually you'll want to play in one timeline until you get stuck, and then play in the other until you get stuck, which gets you unstuck in the other timeline, lol. Time traveling isn't really much of a gameplay element in this. It's more of a story device.

Also, Atlus is reprinting this soon, sans bonus CD. Probably don't want to pay 50 bucks for it. :3
