Atlus has expressed interest in localizing The Legend of Legacy for Nintendo 3DS. The role-playing game, which launched earlier this year in Japan, is apparently being prepped for release in Western territories. The news was leaked by Atlus PR manager John Hardin, who said the following during the latest Shin Megami Tensei Social Link podcast:
“That’s not to say we’re not looking beyond not-not just Aquaplus and Spike Chun, and everything. I hope we see a lot more Japanese games come over here. Actually, we did announce The Legend of Legacy is coming over here, and we have another one in the can, too, that I can’t talk about yet, ha ha ha ha. But another really niche Japanese game that actually isn’t even out yet—we’re bringing it over for the 3DS later this year. What could it be?”

Interestingly, the developer released the following disclaimer after the game’s debut:
