A call to arms to all JRPG fans around the world!

Legrand Legacy beckons back to the golden years of JRPG gaming, back when such classics as Suikoden, Legend of Dragoon, and the never ending Final Fantasy series were kings. Promises to deliver an experience that will kick your nostalgia into overdrive, hoping to prove that JRPG’s are back and better than ever.

The old-school tactical turn-based JRPG is the core of Legrand Legacy, boasting a rich story line, fully immersive 2.5D visuals with hand-drawn 2D backgrounds. A QTE turn-based combat system to keep players on their toes as they embark upon a journey across a chaotic world of civil unrest, and otherworldly invaders.

Being developed by a small indie developer who’s first game, Legrand Legacy, is struggling to hit its Kickstarter goal of £85,000. With just two weeks left to go and currently sitting at £33,909, a call to arms has been ushered out by SEMISOFT. Urging those who can help this awesomely nostalgic JRPG to spread the word and to pledge and push them to their goal. If you’re still on the fence about pledging, perhaps trying out the extensive 2-3 hour long demo could help sway your opinion.
