Position your party according to the battle situation.

Famitsu’s latest online preview for Furyu’s upcoming 3DS RPG The Legend of Legacy details its weapon types, “Battle Techniques,” and “Roll Shuffle” system.

The Legend of Legacy

Freely Equip Seven Types of Weapons

In The Legend of Legacy, there are seven playable characters, and as such, seven weapon types. There’s the sword, great sword, axe, spear, staff, bow and arrow, and the shield. Because each character lacks specific weapon characteristics, you can equip any weapon to any of the seven characters. You can equip your weapons in the menu screen.

Battle Techniques

Each weapon makes use of a “Battle Technique” for its basic attack. These techniques range from simultaneously striking several opponents, to striking a single opponent several times, to preventing an enemy attack and responding with a counterattack, etc. FuRyu promises a great variety of these techniques. Make full use of them to defeat the enemy.

Roll Shuffle

During battle, there is a concept of “Position” that represents the role of each character, so formation is key. Through the game’s “Roll Shuffle” system, players are recommended to create several formations beforehand so they can easily switch up their roles when the battle situation calls for it.
