Publisher Marvelous has confirmed that Lord Of Magna: Maiden Heaven is heading west this June.
The strategy RPG - produced by Yoshifumi Hashimoto, the man behind Harvest Moon, Rune Factory and Story of Seasons - will be getting a physical and digital release in North America, where it launches on June 2nd with a retail price of $39.99.
In Europe, the game will be exclusive to the 3DS eShop, costing £24.99 / €29.99. In Australia, it will be priced at $49.95 AUD.
The game boasts a unique battle system, with movement and attacks bound to a "circle of reach" rather than a grid-based set-up, like other strategy RPGs. The storyline involves fairy maidens trapped in crystals, and in keeping with Hashimoto's previous projects, you'll be able to get creative by maintaining your own inn.
Will you be investing in this RPG when it launches later this year? Let us know by posting a comment.
Will the UK eshop version becoming in June too?
Great news! Definitely getting it physically as soon as I find it.
More rpg's is always a good thing. My 3ds is rpg powerhouse. Sure the ds had a lot but most were hit.or miss. So far the 3ds has mostly hits!
I accidentally read the title as maid heaven instead of maiden heaven. Now i am slightly disappointed.
Since when has that been considered an unique battle system? Phantom Brave used circles as well while the Neptunia series uses a more advanced version of the battle system in this game.
Seems I randomly preordered this game already.
Nah, not interested. The character designs are somewhat generic, the gameplay looks boring, and the "voices" made me mute the video pretty quickly.
@arronishere It will arrive in Europe on June 4th.
Harem jrpg yes please! First day buy!
@Spoony_Tech Agreed. I love RPGs, but the ones on the DS never appealed to me much and as a huge fan of Mario RPGs, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time disappointed me in so many levels that not even the varied enemies and graphics were enough to save it. Bowser's Inside Story, for the least part, had more budget and effort put in while otherwise, it too disappointed me. That is one of the reasons my DS library is the shortest of the other Nintendo systems and as a result, my least favorite Nintendo system of all time.
The 3DS, on the other hand, I definitely enjoy for having a far better library and even though the system doesn't have as many RPGs as its preceding system, I prefer quality over quantity. I have already picked up and enjoyed Fire Emblem Awakening and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, I already have plans for getting Etrian Mystery Dungeon and am quite interested in the Puzzle & Dragons games, as well as Lord of Magna.
Cool. ...My RPG backlog is pretty deep though. Still haven't gotten around to Rune Factory 4, Bravely Default, or Persona Q, not to mention my completely untouched copy of Soulhackers.
I might play this someday.
I would love a physical release of this and Rune Factory 4 in Europe..
@StephenYap3 You should dl the demos of Etrian Odyssey IV and Untold as well. Great games. As a matter of fact Atlus makes the best rpg's for me on the system. Haven't disliked any of theirs.
sigh I need a fourth job...
To think I swore to cut back on buying games this year...
...Might try the game out, though I kinda hope they'll still be able to continue Rune Factory. :c
Guess I'll import a physical copy from the States and then grab it on the eShop in the UK when its like 50% sale, just lime I did with SMT IV & Code of Princess
I was sold at "from the producer of Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, and Story of Seasons".
I'm actually going to pass on this one. I just have to much backlog. I may only buy 1 or 2 retail games this year. Xenoblade on Wii-U is a definite buy then there is nothing after that. I will more than likely pick up some eshop cheapies in the sale section.
I'm not sure using circles in an SRPG is innovative or unique. Arc the Lad did it on PS2 and I'm sure other games have. Not that I'm complaining or anything, but it always irks me when things are described that way...
Looks interesting! Too much backlog, so probably a game where I waited for sale. But definitely on my watch.
Maybe they'll use the money from sales to form a search party and find their producer?
sweet! buying physical.
