Name: Radiant Historia NDS
Platform: Nintendo DS

Radiant Historia is a role-playing video game co-developed by Atlus and Headlock for the Nintendo DS. It was released in Japan in 2010 by Atlus, and in North America in 2011 by their subsidiary Atlus USA. An expanded remake for the Nintendo 3DS, titled Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, was released in 2017 in Japan and will be released in North America and Europe the following year, with the European version being published by Deep Silver.

The game is set on the continent of Vainqueur, which is divided between the warring nations of Alistel and Granorg while also being turned into a wasteland by a malady called the Sand Plague. The story follows Stocke, a soldier of Alistel, after he is chosen to wield the White Chronicle, a book which can enable him to navigate alternate timelines and prevent the destruction of Vainqueur. Stocke and his party explore Vainqueur, fighting enemies on a grid-based battlefield using a turn-based system. Travelling between alternate timelines is a key part of both the storyline and the gameplay, with the number of potential timelines unlocked influencing the ending.

Radiant Historia was developed by a team with staff drawn from both Atlus' Megami Tensei series, including Mitsuru Hirata in his debut as director, and Satoshi Takayashiki and artist Hiroshi Konishi from the tri-Ace title Radiata Stories. First proposed by Satoshi Takayashiki in 2007, the base concept underwent several changes due to suggestions from Atlus staff. The remake included redrawn artwork, an additional story path, and an animated opening produced by A-1 Pictures. The music for both versions was composed by Yoko Shimomura, with the theme songs being performed by Haruka Shimotsuki. Reception for the original release was positive.
