Striking JRPG Legrand Legacy announced for Xbox One

So, whenever a new JRPG is announced for Xbox One, it's somewhat of a momentous occasion. Legrand Legacy is a nostalgic love letter to classic JRPGs from publisher Another Indie and developer SemiSoft. The game will arrive on Xbox One in Q1 2019 and tell a surprisingly touching tale. Before that though, Legrand Legacy is coming to Windows PC on January 24, 2018 for $24.99.

After being freed from slavery, former gladiator Finn embarks on a journey to save his emancipator's daughter, which leads him to a prophecy and a more important quest. Finn must protect the world from the second coming of a conflict that nearly annihilated the planet long ago.

Despite the looming darkness, Legrand is a thriving realm depicted in an art style delicately balancing Eastern and Western oil paintings. As Finn explores the beautiful world of Legrand, he will learn the backstories of allies, uncover side quests, go fishing, and engage in fencing competitions in addition to intense hack-and-slash battles.

Exploiting enemies' weaknesses and unleashing powerful attacks is the key to success. You must craft weapons and unlock new magic abilities as the enemies become fiercer. By recruiting certain citizens of Legrand to join his party, Finn can upgrade his headquarters, Dumville Castle. As his party expands, Finn gains the services of blacksmiths, shopkeepers, and others that aid his journey.

  • Looks like **** but I've been begging for a jrpg. So I'll take what I can get lol
  • It kind of gives me that Final Fantasy 7 and 8 feel.  I can't wait to see more gameplay! 
  • Just play Lost Odyssey very good RPG from the 360 days. Another title (not for Xbox) but I'm about 35 hours into Xeno Chronicles 2 on Switch... It's rather grindy but kinda gives a classic 16 bit era RPG style vibe to it. For some reason I'm enjoying it even though some of the stuff is rather corny and the grind can be tedious at times.
  • They need to step up their graphics, but at least someone is giving xbox some jrpg love.
  • not just graphics... animation system need to be at least 2015 not always ps1 era...
  • Looks pretty decent, i'm really digging the expansion and recruitment concept. Looking forward to the reviews of this game. As I have a few questions in mind, which will be hopefully addressed in the reviews.
