2014-released PS Vita action RPG gets a port.

Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy

Arc System Works is bringing Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy, its 2014-launched PS Vita hack-and-slash action RPG, to Switch via the Nintendo eShop on January 25 for $9.99 / 1,200 yen, the company announced.

The Switch version will support both English and Japanese languages, and be playable in TV mode, tabletop mode, and handheld mode. 1.5 gigabytes of space will be required.

Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:

The world was at peace. The sun’s rays illuminating the lush green fields that covered the earth.

Mankind learned to live in harmony with the forest. They built villages, had children, and passed on their knowledge to the next generation. Perhaps not the most prosperous settlements, but it was a testament to mankind’s willpower, and their ability to live among nature.

…Until that fateful day…

Everything changed with the sudden appearance of the “Decoders”. Beings with a form unbeknownst to mankind, the “Decoders” emerge out of a blinding light that engulfed the sky, slaughtering all of mankind without a shred of mercy. In a single night of onslaught, the “Decoders” conquered the entire world, instilling fear among the weak with brutal violence. Those who managed to survive the rampage now live in shelters beyond the reach of the “Decoders”.

Twelve years later…

This is the story of a few brave heroes who became beacons of hope – making the last stand against the “Decoders” in hope to return peace to the world.
