    Review Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven

    Domestic Bliss

    When Rune Factory developer Neverland sadly shut up shop in 2013, there was still one project left on the table - a brand new story-driven SRPG named Lord of Magna. It lay unfinished until Marvelous miraculously reassembled part of the original team to finish the game, and we're lucky they did; it's not perfect, but with fun battles,...

About The Game

Residing on the outskirts of town as the proprietor of a quiet, rustic inn, Luchs has lived through much of his life proudly clinging to a code of honour passed down from father to son for generations that states: when our cherished guests finally arrive, think of them as nothing less than family.

Unfortunately, the inn has not had a single guest since its foundation, leaving Luchs no choice but to excavate and sell crystals - the island's most valuable fuel source - in order to make ends meet. It is during one such routine excavation that he happens upon a beautiful maiden encased inside a massive crystal, and her abrupt awakening triggers a series of unexpected events that includes foul fiends, astonishing abilities, and miraculous mysteries.

The game features seven heroines and seven stories – each of the heroines who come to inhabit the inn have their own stories to tell, and building relationships with them will unlock new, specialised attacks to aid in combat when they join the battle party. In strategic combat, make every turn count - "bowl" over as many enemies as possible with a single strike, challenging players to line up melee, ranged and magical attacks so that frontline enemies are knocked into others for maximum collateral damage.

In addition to unlocking new abilities, participating in Free Battles and registering for StreetPass can provide rare crafting items for use in creating new skills to help turn the tides of battle. Players can toggle between Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty levels, use the Fast Forward feature to speed up combat as desired, or relive fond memories via in-game movie and art galleries.
