The Alliance Alive HD Remastered is a refreshed version of the classic jRPG game, released in 2018 on a portable Nintendo 3DS console. The production offers improved graphics, but does not make any changes to the gameplay layer. Cattle Call studio (also known from some parts of the Arc the Lad series and Disney Stitch Jam music game) in cooperation with the father of the cult Suikoden series, Yoshitaka Murayama, is responsible for creating this title. The role of publisher in this case was played by NIS America.
The age of darkness has begun in the world. Demons caused a powerful cataclysm that decimated mankind and shattered the land. The survivors had to submit to demonic lords. To regain freedom will require a great revolution - but will it be possible to rekindle the flame of struggle in the hearts of broken people?
The Alliance Alive HD Remastered game does not differ from the patterns typical for the genre. We explore a vast world (where you can also find cities and dangerous dungeons), perform tasks for NPCs, acquire new, more powerful items and of course we fight.
The clashes take place on separate boards and a maximum of five heroes take part in them. The fights are played in turn-based system. To be successful, we need to make the most of the abilities of each character. As the game progresses, the skills of each character develop. The mechanics responsible for this is quite simple and intuitive - the more often we use a skill, the faster it becomes stronger, but also the power of the opponent is important here.
The player also has the opportunity to join several different guilds that can be found in the game world. Each of them has different characteristics and offers different benefits.
In The Alliance Alive HD Remastered we can only play alone. Production does not offer any multiplayer modes. As in the case of almost every jRPG game, the basis of the game is an extensive feature campaign.
The Alliance Alive HD Remastered presents itself better than the original Nintendo 3DS image resolution and some details have been improved. However, the manga artistic style, typical for this production, has not changed. The soundtrack created by the Japanese composer Masashi Hamauzu was also left in an identical form.
