Pokémon and Stardew Valley Fans Should Keep an Eye on Re:Legend

The new farming and monster taming JRPG hybrid is being developed by Magnus Games and published through the Square Enix Collective.

After overwhelming support from fans through the Square Enix Collective, upcoming JRPG Re:Legend is continuing development with the publishers's support. In Re:Legend, players inhabit an island where they can farm, befriend NPCs, improve their village, and tame monsters known as "Magnus." 

Magnus are mythical creatures which inhabit the game's land of Ethia, and every Magnus can be tamed. Magnus will grow and evolve depending on the player's care of them, and each one has particular conditions which must be met before they can evolve. When the player has fully gained the trust of a Magnus, they will be mountable and it will become easier to use their abilities, which help with combat, farming, fishing, travelling and other activities.

Raising these Magnus are the main objective of the game, but farming is also important. Players will be able to grow crops, catch and raise fish, mine for ore, or chop and collect wood to obtain food and supplies.

Similar to other farming games, players can recruit other characters by giving them gifts they like, which then will allow them to help the player improve their village.

In addition to single player, Re:Legend will also have an online multiplayer mode that supports up to four players. One player will be required to host a multiplayer session while the other players join. In multiplayer mode, players can engage in combat, farm, go on adventures, tame their Magnus, complete quests, explore, hunt bounties, fish, chop wood, mine, trade, and compete for villager affection together. Multiplayer exclusive features are planned to be revealed in the future.

Re:Legend is currently in development for PC. The game is also planned for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Fans can learn more about the game and new updates from its official website or Facebook page.
