Natsume today revealed that its upcoming PlayStation Network title, Mystic Chronicles, has gone gold. Developed by Kemco, the game became an immediate cult classic in Japan and will be landing in North America this summer. With its retro-style graphics, story-driven quests, and a turn-based battle system, Natsume is launching the digital version for both PSP and PS Vita on July 16th for a suggested retail price of $14.99.
One of the most exciting features in the game will be Mystic Chronicles’ Guardian Beast system. This gameplay feature will have the player assigning a godlike beast to each character, and setting its AI to offensive, defensive, or healing. With lots of Guardian Beasts to mix and match among your party members, picking your favorite might be a quest in itself.
