| Mimana: Iyar Chronicle is a single player, side-scrolling JRPG (Japanese role-playing game) for play on PlayStation Portable. Blending traditional RPG elements like map exploration and dungeon crawling, it allows players to engage in real-time battles in near 3D environments, where you control the movements, actions and strategy of up to four characters and impact the overall story, depending on your actions in the world of Iyar. Story |
Drunk, despondent, and down on his luck, a spellsword mercenary named Crais Sewell reluctantly accepts a job from a young, cheerful troubadour named Sophie Rothorn. Their mission: to recover seven jewels scattered throughout the world of Iyar- for what reason, Sophie refuses to say. On their travels, Sophie and Crais meet Melrose, an eccentric mage with a penchant for dissection, Tinon, a tomboy who wields her magic a little too liberally, and Patty, a young woman with a good heart and a love for magical items disproportionate to her funds. As it becomes clear that Sophie's quest is not unrelated to a past Crais would prefer to forget, he faces a choice: Will he confront his past failures, and ultimately overcome them, or succumb to despair and misery? It is entirely possible that the fate of the world, or at least Crais's corner of it, may depend on his answer.

Mimana: Iyar Chronicle is a single player, side-scrolling JRPG (Japanese role-playing game) in which players take on the role of disgruntled hero for hire, Crais Sewell. In debt to a local guild, players accept the job offered by Sophie Rothorm in hopes to get back to even. Along with Crais players also guide the actions of up to three female characters, and together engage in the real-time battles that make up the action in the game. Crais has a whole range of usable attacks ranging from basic hack and slash button mashing to precise combos that when executed correctly yield maximum damage with every stroke. Another valuable battle feature are prioritizable AI behaviors of other characters with regards to attacks, magic, healing and attack distances that can be easily altered depending on the strategy employed against a particular enemy. Just as with any RPG, success in battle equates to leveling of character, skills, arsenal and abilities, which in turn leads to even more success and challenges. Key Game Features
