A really exciting piece of news from SEMISOFT, as they announced the singer of NieR: Automata‘s soundtrack Emi Evans will sing for Legrand Legacy‘s soundtrack.
NieR: Automata is highly regarded as one of the best games of 2017. It has stunning graphics and cool gameplay, with 2B as the super eye-candy main protagonist. It also has a tingling and beautiful soundtrack from Emi Evans’ voice, “Chaos Language”.
Legrand Legacy is very lucky to have her as its soundtrack singer. SEMISOFT announced it on Legrand‘s Kickstarter page. Her soft and soothing voice can be heard in the game’s “Suteki no Mono” song. You can see the teaser of the song above.
Emi Evans is a British-Japanese singer who lives in Japan. She is a member the duo group freesscape. Besides singing for NieR: Automata soundtrack, she also sang the soundtrack for Drakengard.
Legrand Legacy is said to be an homage to the classic JRPG, with gameplay similar to the likes of The Legend of Dragoon and Shadow Heart. You will be controlling a character named Finn, a slave that turns into a hero. You will plunge into the realm of Legrand that is full of monsters and conflicts.
Just like the classic JRPG, the game will have a turn-based battle system and lots of FMV. The battle system also adopts action circle that requires you to tap a button at the right time. Tap in the right area and you will have bonus damage, but if you tap outside the area, you will miss the attack.
Legrand Legacy is a Kickstarter-funded game. The goal was set to US$40,000, but they managed to gather US$44,628 from 1,001 backers. It was their second attempt that gave them the funds they needed, where the first one failed to reach the initially planted goal.
This game has recently received an award from Game Development World Championship 2017 (GDWC 2017). They got in the third place for the audience vote. The event holds a great promise for them as they already have fans lining up.
