APGNation has heard loud and clear that our loyal readers want to see more JRPGs on Steam, and it seems at least a few video game companies are finally taking steps to make that happen. Bringing the goods to PC gamers everywhere today is Marvelous Europe, the European branch of Marvelous Japan, who will be porting KEMCO’s 16-bit RPG homage Alphadia Genesis to Steam on January 12th.
Alphadia Genesis takes players on an epic, old-school journey through a world on the brink of disaster. Tensions from a war fought 15 years prior paired with legal battles over the rights of clones threaten to undermine everything the people hold dear. A wide swath of impressive features go along with that classic plot, including a 16-bit styled overhead world map, 3D animated battle sequences, professional Japanese voice acting, and controls optimized for the game’s PC release. Gamers will also be able to collect all of the Steam-related swag such as trading cards, badges, and wallpaper that typically come with these releases.
“We can’t wait for the Steam Community to get their hands on Alphadia Genesis” says Jonathan Nevill, Project Manager of Marvelous Games. “It’s a great game for JRPG enthusiasts to get stuck into. Good luck to those that aim to 100% the game content, and reach the TRUE ending! Pro-tip: Be prepared!”
Alphadia Genesis arrives on Steam January 12th. Gamers looking forward to more JRPGs on Steam will also have Neptunia Rebirth 1 and 2 to add to their wish list very soon, while the rest of you can find the latest in gaming news and reviews on our Twitter @APGNation.
