Mystic Chronicles is an old-school RPG developed by Kemco and launched in the US thanks to Natsume. It is currently available for the PS Vita and PSP (but since the PSP store is no longer available directly from your PSP you’ll have to use other options to get the game to your previous-gen Sony portable if you really want to play it there). Is it a fun RPG, even after it hits most of the genre clichÃ©s (abandoned orphan who can’t remember his past, young mysterious girl that is found by the group, defending the world from destruction, etc.)?
