Radiant Historia Director Still Jokingly Thinks about Making a Sequel


Radiant Historia—a Nintendo DS RPG developed and published by Atlus—was released five years ago in Japan, on November 3, 2010.

For this anniversary, the game’s director Mitsuru Hirata had the following to say on Twitter:

It’s been already 5 years! Though it’s hard to admit that it was never a hit, I’m always grateful to see so many people who love it. Personally, I also think it’s a very good title. Someday, there will be a new Radiant Historia game! That’s the kind of thought I continue to have (laughs).
