Created by a three-man team (past credits include King of Fighters), Legend of Raven rocks hard with classic 2D fighting action and tournament-level depth. Developed over four years in Japan (and known there as Yatagarasu), Legend of Raven was originally released in 2011 as a Japan-only title. Art direction and character design by fan-favorite artist Styleos, game design and balance by ex-SNK designer Umezono and game engine by Shiza--the three-man team makes up Circle Edge. Legend of Raven also features a unique optional commentator system that mimics the tournament trash talk experience with fighting community celebs, KSK, Kokkujin and Tokido.
The year was December 25th, 1926. Japan was on the verge of welcoming a new era...the era of "Koubun".
Instead a revolution broke out, led by those who hoped to revive the Land of the Gods, Japan, and return her to its former glory. The Prime Minister's cabinet, the police department, the Zaibatsu families, the mass media...the flow of information to the outside world was immediately suppressed.
Out of options, the old government resorted to creating a group of elite assassins, called the "Yatagarasu" in order to maintain order and suppress the rebellion.
These government agents have become known as the "Government's Dogs" by the general populace. Now, they are on the move towards "Iga-sei", which is said to still function as the government's intelligence hub.
