That 3DS game Marvelous AQL teased is a new simulation RPG.

Kinki no Magna

Marvelous AQL’s new 3DS game teased last week is a simulation RPG called Forbidden Magna, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

The new game is developed by staff members that worked on the Rune Factory series. The story begins when the protagonist encounters a spirit, prompting his pursuit to discover the truth of the world.

The scan above shows the protagonist Lux (top left), and characters Diana (bottom left), Beatrice (bottom right), and Charlotte (top right).

Further details have yet to leak.

Thanks, Famitsu.

    Wasn’t Rune Factory devs bankrupt?

    • Sal Romano

      Yeah. This is likely staff from Neverland that joined Marvelous AQL after the company shut down. Famitsu’s online preview story doesn’t elaborate.

      The dev bankrupted
      but the game is not, they (MAQL) got another ppl to continue to make the game, looks good though

        “they (MAQL) got another ppl to continue to make the game,”
        They are the same people, and probably are going to make the next Rune Factory too but this time under a new studio brand or Marvelous’s.

  • asch999

    • Auragar

  • bloodiOS

    I read that as Forbidden Manga and went in expecting something different from what being shown…

    • British_Otaku

      I imagine that is going to be a common typo or misconception.

  • Pyrofrost

    Can someone please explain what a “simulation RPG” is please, in detail.
    I would be most grateful.

    • Lalum

      They’re called strategy RPGs over here. Something like FF Tactics or Fire Emblem.

      • Pyrofrost

        I see, thank you very much for letting me know. ^^

        I hope it’s good, I’m really iffy when it comes to strat RPGs. The only ones I really like are Devil Survivor, Luminous Arc, and FE.
