Review: Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology

February 05, 2018 1 min read

In 2011, when the Nintendo DS was being shuffled off this mortal coil in favor of the 3DS, Atlus released one of the most interesting JRPGs in the system's storied catalog. Radiant Historia was a long and thoughtful game that easily drew comparisons to Chrono Trigger with its time-jumping shenanigans. It was big and ambitious, though linear to a fault, and challenged players to actually pay attention to the world and its story if they wanted to succeed. With a unique battle system, it wasn't the worst way to wrap up one's time with the DS.

Seven years later, as the era of the Nintendo 3DS begins its slow descent into the annals of time, Atlus is bringing Radiant Historia back with Perfect Chronology. It's largely the same game, but the experience just doesn't feel quite as magical this time around.
