Fallen Legion, the December 2015-announced high-speed action RPG for PlayStation 4, is coming to both PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2017, developer YummyYummyTummmy announced at PlayStation Experience 2016.
Fallen Legion begins with Princess Cecille standing on a battlefield, with her weary army behind her, gazing into an approaching beast brigade. The King of Fenumia’s threads of life were cut short and he passed on relics as well as the responsibility of ruling her crumbling country to Cecille. Among the king’s effects is a talking book that has the power to breathe life into weapons. This enigmatic Grimoire knows the truth about Fenumia and her home isn’t the idyllic kingdom the citizens believe it is.
I love RPGs and fighting games. This shows in Fallen Legion’s unique battle system that blends both genres together. Cecille brings up to three Exemplars — weapons turned into soldiers by the Grimoire — in battle with her. Zulfiqar is heavy hitter who can also protect other Exemplars with his sturdy shield. Longinus is a damage dealer with multi-hit spear strikes. Apollon can debilitate enemies with status effects. Each character has their own action bar and it’s possible to start slashing with Zulfiqar then switch to Apollon to shoot a barrage of arrows.
Pressing the “L1” button makes characters block and if you time a block right before an enemy strikes you’ll trigger Perfect Guard which can stagger enemies or reflect projectiles. Ever wanted to send a dragon’s fireball back at it? You can do that in Fallen Legion!
There’s so much more I want to say about Fallen Legion like how we create our hand-drawn artwork, what other Exemplars you can summon, and who our story writer is. If you’re coming to PlayStation Experience come up and ask me these questions! Fallen Legion will be playable at the show and we have some cool swag for everyone that comes by to play it.
