Retronauts Episode 422: Radiant Historia
Nobody puts Stocke into the corner
This week on Retronauts, we cover a game well-regarded by those who encountered it, but one that managed to slip past most gamers twice during its commercial releases. That doesn't happen very often!
I'm talking about Radiant Historia, a handheld JRPG that arrived on the Nintendo DS mere months before the 3DS launched (in the case of the English version, it was a matter of weeks). Years later, Radiant Historia got a second chance with Perfect Chronology, a remake made especially for the Nintendo 3DS…but it launched after the Nintendo Switch was already on the market and the 3DS was yesterday's news.
Our assembled crew of Nadia Oxford, Jeremy Parish, Anthony John Agnello and patron Lorenzo Hulzebos did not miss out on the Radiant Historia experience, and thus they took time out of their schedule in the past to tell us in the future not to overlook this unique take on the fantasy JRPG.
Description: Like dust in the wind, Nadia Oxford leads Jeremy Parish, Anthony John Agnello, and topic-requesting patron Lorenzo Hulzebos across the sands of time to explore (and re-explore) Atlus' cult-classic time-travel RPG, Radiant History.
