Egglia: Legend of the Redcap, a mobile JRPG for the iOS & Android platform produced by POWERCHORD STUDIO & Brownies Inc., which includes some of the most prolific people in the gaming industry, Shinichi Kameoka, Koji Tsuda, and composer Yoko Shimomura whom you may know worked on amazing games such as Legend of Mana, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts & many more. The folks at POWERCHORD STUDIO & Brownies Inc. are kind enough to approach us to review their game & provide us a review copy. We are grateful that they entrust us to review this game since we haven't review games. But hey, this might be a regular thing at The Lab.
Being a mobile JRPG game usually raises a lot of concern especially the one comes with Free-To-Play model with features locked behind micro-transaction paywall. This game however is a premium game, I’m happy to say, without micro-transaction. If you’re thinking they’re skimping a lot of features by simply a mobile game, you’re wrong. In fact, it has every single feature you would expect in a full-fledged JRPG, which includes an immersive story, memorable characters, great soundtrack, enemy battles, resource management, and settlement development.
The game has been out in Japan for a while now & it had received glowing reviews. Finally, we are able to get our hands on the English language version.
