I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library.

RADIATA STORIES is the latest fantasy RPG by tri-Ace, developers of Valkyrie Profile and the Star Ocean series. An emotional story about the conflict between humans and fairy creatures is complemented by a new gameplay system that draws the player deep into the game.

The kingdom of Radiata lies in a world where humans and fairy creatures coexist. It is here that the protagonists, Jack and Ridley, meet for the first time. While Jack seeks to become a knight, Ridley must accept her fate in becoming one. Destinies are realized when a war erupts between the humans and the fairy creatures and threatens to end the world of Radiata.

Gameplay Features

  • Link Battle System The popular traditional real-time battle system known for its straightforward controls and extravagant presentation has a new element. By forming a “link” attack, the player can execute combos and other moves with all party members joining as one.
  • Befriending System There are over 150 characters that Jack can recruit throughout his adventure. It is up to the player whether they journey alone or seek out others to journey with. Every playable character is beneficial in some way.
  • Time Schedule System In Radiata, NPCs carry out their daily lives. Players encounter different NPCs depending on their location or the time of day.

Main Characters

Jack Russell
Age: 16 Jack is the protagonist of this story. He’s an energetic young boy who was born and raised in Solieu, not too far from Radiata. His father was Cairn Russell, hero and dragon slayer of Radiata. His parents have passed away, and he and his sister, Adele, currently live alone. On his 16th birthday, he tests his strength as a warrior by trying to become a Royal Radiata Knight, just like his father.

Ridley Silverlake
Age: 16 The only daughter of the noble Silverlake family, she was raised to become a knight from a young age. She has a stern personality and is stubborn. However, she does have a fragile side and her weakness is her inability to come up with solutions quickly. A tragic event will draw her deep into the conflict of not only Radiata, but of the entire world.
