Story

After his childhood friend’s parents are stricken with the plague, Albert meets one Dr. Moreau, and agrees to participate in a trial experiment for the promise of a potential cure. However, when the experiment itself proves to be a facade for turning humans into revenants and the Rystorian Order suddenly intervenes, Albert is left with the soul of a demon inside him vying for control of his body. Realizing the same mad scientist who tricked him is also responsible for his childhood friend’s death and many others close to him, he sets out on a journey alone to exact revenge on the man who ruined his life…
However, after crossing paths with revenant hunter slash potential valkyrie, Esther, and being pushed into joining her cause, Albert begins to seriously wonder if or how long he will be able to keep his secret from his new companion. To make matters worse, she has been endowed with the very powers capable of vanquishing those like him!

Stunning 3D Battles

Smooth controls and a fluid camera make 3D battles in Revenant Saga stress free and perfect for PlayStation! In addition, powerful skills with brilliant effects enhance the RPG experience like never before! And with auto and semi-auto functions, battles are as simple as the touch of a button!

Kemco’s RPGs , while not the most original, have been great games and a lot of fun.  Revenant Saga looks like it will continue this trend and be a great game to spend time on.

KEMCO proudly announces the release of Revenant Saga for PlayStation®set to hit the North American PlayStation®Store this spring. The game will be made available for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita. For more information, please visit the Game Page on PlayStation.com.

There are many adventures to be had in Revenant Saga! Playing as Albert, you must navigate a perilous world crawling with both the fast-spreading plague and the monstrous Revenants. So, while all Albert had wanted was to save his friend from certain death, an unfortunate meeting with a deranged doctor causes him to be caught in a heavenly battle, stuck somewhere between good and evil.

In the classic RPG style, players are able to join forces with like-minded (or maybe not-so-like-minded) allies as they travel the world of Revenant Saga. And while Albert’s companions prove to be a combination of powerful and hilarious, in this precarious world everyone has skeletons buried in their closet. Will Albert and his friend’s be overcome by those skeletons? Guess you’ll need to play to find out.

What you should know: Revenant Saga will incorporate over 30+ hours of gameplay woven around Albert’s elaborate journey. This includes a variety of unique subquests, in-battle transformation systems, as well as a weapon forging system allowing players to make entirely unique weapons as they battle in a classic 3D battle animation system! Also, Revenant Saga will provide an entirely brand new feature to the PS KEMCO gaming experience: players will be able to earn platinum trophies as a reward for progress and effort spent throughout the game!

Take a leap of faith! The world of Revenant Saga’s doors will open for you in Spring 2017!

Kemco RPGs are often hit or miss with many, but they do have a charm to them that makes them fun to play. Hopefully this game will be a success.

Justice Chronicles is Kemco’s latest release on the Nintendo 3DS eshop, and it puts us in the role of Kline, a novice High Beast Knight who is sent on reconnaissance into Laft,the Earth-Depths. There he comes across Alia, a Battle Maiden who has suffered terrible injuries and is close to death.  In order to help her, he forms a partnership with the God of Death, Rooselevy.  Alia lives, but in return, the young knight must give up his life. In a world on the brink of war, the newly acquainted duo must fight destiny itself in order to save the world from the ever creeping darkness that is threatening to consume everything.  I absolutely love JRPGs.  If they give me a world in the brink of destruction and a team of unlikely heroes, I am a happy man.  Justice Chronicles is a good example of a good JRPG that can keep you playing for a long time (well all JRPGs are HUGE ordeals but you get the idea).

 001

You first start the game you play as Kline, and you are a novice High Beast Knight.  However, since you are not a rival yet, the reconnaissance mission into Laft serves as a test of your abilities.  When you get to Laft, you encounter Josh, a strange creature who is your guide to the mine where you must gather information about your enemies.  Needless to say, something goes wrong, and your team prioritizes the mission and left Kline alone while he is fighting a monster called “Vasist” trying to save the life of a girl.  After that he forms a partnership with the God of Death, Rooselevy, and becomes a “Rivel”(Rivels are warriors that fight with the help of a high Beast).  Since Rooselevy is sneaky, Kline must give his life for his aid.  As you progress through the story, (which is really good by the way) you find the reasons why you can wield Guardian Beasts and Kline’s true power.

003

Justice Chronicles uses your standard turn based battle system.  You have your Attack, Guard, Items and Skills menus.  However, what sets Justice Chronicles apart is the Beast Partner system.  Each time you attack, your Beast partner does an action based in the parameters set by the player.  Pursuit type the Beast partner acts based on the characters AGL value.  Guidance type is based on the shell’s AGL value, so that gives you a room for strategy and find which is the best for you.

Another cool feature is the dual skills.  Each time you attack or are attacked, a “Heat” gauge starts to fill.  When you get it to one hundred percent, you can do a double or triple attack.  Depending on your party, you can use a powerful physical attack, or a ultimate magic attack that are really useful in boss battles.  The Crafting system is great also.  In each dungeon, there are gathering points (you get the items just passing over the blinking light), and you can use the materials obtained to strengthen your weapons and armor.  However, that is not the only way to do it.  You can also find recipes to get better equipment.

The game’s art is really good, reminiscent of the SNES era.  I totally loved the first person view when battling enemies.  Speaking of enemies, I really like the animations on each one, how they move, and the attack effects.  Also, I really like the animations when you use a dual attack and special skills.  The music is really good, and I like how it gets me pumped up when there is a boss battle.  The over world music is enjoyable and the intro movie is really cool.

Bottom Line: Justice Chronicles is a great addition to the ever growing eshop library.  It has a good story, tons of side quests, and a great crafting and battle system.  For me, it is a great retro-styled JRPG. I can’t recommend it enough.  It is one of my favorite games released by Kemco.  I can see that the quality is getting better, and that is a good sign.

I love RPGs and especially JRPGS and there has been a lack of them on the Wii U ( even with the virtual console), so I was very happy to hear about this game from Kemco. Kemco previously developed Alphadia Genesis for Wii U which was localized by Natsume and was a decent , if generic JRPG that was good for those seeking any JRPG not on the virtual console.  But how does Asdivine Hearts hold up as a JRPG on Wii U? In a word: excellent.

Asdivine Hearts ( which is apparently part of a larger series) is a fantastic RPG that is a must have for any JRPG fan. Unlike Kemco’s other Wii U RPG Alphadia Genesis, battle transitions are handled much better with less flashing lights. Indeed, there are less flashing lights in general which made it much easier on my eyes. The combat system is also excellent in general, but before I talk about that I must mention the Jewel System.  In the game, you are given an item called a Rubix which can hold Jewels which can affect status, HP, MP and so on.  As you progress in the game, you can get bigger Rubixes and store more Jewels which can have more effects. The combat system uses the Jewels both in the form of void magic, light magic and shadow magic, and well as status jewels to create new effects in battle. There are limit breaks and team ups and it was much more fun than I anticipated.

The story is still rather generic but welcome at the same time. The characters are not well developed though and their development throughout the game is uneven.  My biggest complaint though is that there is some screen tearing on occasion and the audio skips quite a bit, especially if you had briefly suspended the game.

That said I still had a lot of fun playing this. I think I have put more hours into this game than any other in the last month. I really like this game and truly need to recommend this to all.

Kemco is bringing, Asdivine Hearts, one of their mobile phone JRPGs, to the Wii U. They previously brought Alphadia Genesis to Wii U which was localized in the west by Natsume Inc. which came out last year. Asdivine Hearts is the first in a 3 game series that has received excellent reviews and acclaim. Let’s hope that Natsume once again helps localize Kemco’s JRPGs for western audiences.
