    Atlus has put out a teaser for the next issue of Weekly Famitsu, hinting that a new game will be announced on March 23rd. The tease comes from a website with the name of radianthistoria.jp, implying that this upcoming reveal is involved with 2011's critically acclaimed DS game, Radiant Historia. The text of the website reads "In the near future, a history once told will unfold again. And an unknown path will come to be known." Stay tuned for coverage of what the announcement will be, sometime tomorrow.

    UPDATE:
    The issue of Famitsu leaked, revealing that the project is a full remake of Radiant Historia for the Nintendo 3DS. Perfect Chronology will be a remake of the original, with extra content. More details are set to come as the full issue of Weekly Famitsu gets translated.

    UPDATE 2:
    The game will be launching on June 29 in Japan. This is a full remake and not a port, so visuals will be enhanced, voice acting will be added, and the game will also have animated cutscenes done by A1 Pictures. The new extra story mode can either be chosen to be included in the main story, or you can have the option to play it after beating the original story mode. The game's director at Atlus, Mitsuru Hirano, explained that the vocal support of this game worldwide is why this remake is being created. The reason that there isn't a sequel, is because Atlus wanted fans to experience the same great game, but with improvements.

    Really hoping this will be for the switch, even though the chances are slimmer than me successfully unbricking many of my PSPs. It'll likely go to the 3DS.

    Holy crap! I thought they have forgotten about this little gem but it turns out that they didn't! amazing game altogether and one of my favorite RPG's period, it may not have the best of all gameplays or anything, but the story, the setting, the characters and everything in between is like, so guuuuud, there was just so much to do that in game, and I'm very glad that Atlus is making a new entry of the Radiant Historia series, this will be a title I can't definitely miss!

    Nice teasing.

    I'll be waiting for a localization of Etrian Odyssey V over there.

    Yay more games! I hope they put Radiant Historia on VC since I never got to play it.

    The original was a very nice game.
    But why keep it sealed?... I just fail to understand the collectionist mindset.

    I am so hard for a Radiant Historia sequel, it was easily one of the best DS games ever made.

    Atlus does have pretty damn good track record when it comes to developing games. I'm okay with a remaster, but a sequel/prequel/spinoff would be just fantastic.

    Remake? That'll do. Lot's people haven't played the original game, so this is a good way to get them started. Hopefully this becomes a series and we get more games to follow this through.

    Radiant Historia is actually one of those games that I really enjoyed but put down because a must-play game just released, and it just snowballed from there. In fact, I was thinking about it last week. Glad to hear they're remaking it for the 3DS. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it this time. But with my luck it'll probably release two days before Star Citizen or FFVII:R.

    This has been in my backlog for a long time now, but as one of the more... must play games. But now I have an excuse to put it off for a little bit longer until we get the enhanced edition. God why do all the games I like have to be long 40+ hour rpgs :wacko:

    Radiant Historia was such a good game. I would've liked it for the Switch (or anything really ; ;), but I'm super excited to see it remastered for the 3DS.

    I don't care who I need to get on my knees in front of to make this game come to the West. But I am prepared for to do so!

    So is this game related to persona or Shin megami tensei? I was hoping for a catherine sequel sometime soon. or did that not sell well or something?

    it was in my backlog for a long time and finally played it last year.
    I'm still missing few optional missions, but completed the main story.

    exactly, why are we liking RPG? we could have liked sport or fighting games, but noooo, we had to pick RPGs ;)

    I completed radiant historia in almost 6 months ^^;
    playing 30min every day, it was frustrating to not play more in one session.
