Natsume Inc. today revealed that its upcoming PlayStation Network title, Mystic Chronicles, has gone gold. Developed by Kemco, the game became an immediate cult classic in Japan and will be landing in North America this summer.
With its retro-style graphics, story-driven quests, and a turn-based battle system, Mystic Chronicles follows the story of a mysterious youth, Lux, adopted by a small village. Lux has just begun his training to join the Holos Guild, a society charged with ridding the world of troublemakers. However, a chance meeting with a young girl sets in motion a series of events that sets Lux on a far more serious quest than just defeating ornery forest creatures.
"Mystic Chronicles is a perfect fit for fans of retro 16-bit RPGs," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. "The game offers tons of customization to players, with the guild, workshop, and unique Guardian Beast system, along with a cast full of intriguing and adorable characters."
Natsume is launching the digital version for both PSP and PS Vita on July 16th for a suggested retail price of $14.99.
