Alphadia Genesis Coming to Steam in the New Year

Not too long ago, we reviewed Kemco’s Wii U eShop JRPG, Alphadia Genesis. Despite the game being fairly cookie-cutter, we spoke fairly highly of the mobile game turned console RPG. It would seem that the title wasn’t meant to stay on Wii U and mobile devices, though, as it was announced today that it will arrive on Steam next year. This release will include everything the eShop release had, in addition to Steam exclusive content.

From the press release, Kemco said to expect the following new features:

  • Achievements – Alphadia Genesis will launch with 20 unlockable achievements which will keep completionists busy for hours on end. Whether it be completing the ‘Treasure Hunter’ achievement by opening treasure chests hidden throughout the game or beating the ‘Lagoon Warrior God’ achievement by slaying opponents, there’s always an extra challenge for those wanting to get the coveted 100% completion.
  • Trading cards – The Steam trading card system is fully supported in Alphadia Genesis, with a total of six to unlock. You can unlock up to half of these by playing through the game, but the others must be bought or traded in the steam marketplace.
  • Badges, backgrounds & Emoticons – Each time you complete a full set of trading cards, you’ll unlock a beautiful Alphadia Genesis background to activate on your Steam profile page. There are a total of 6 to unlock, and each of them features some wonderful 2D character art. They are a must for any retro-JRPG enthusiast, and better still they will be visible on your public profile. In addition to this, you’ll also unlock custom Alphadia Genesis emoticons to use within the Steam chat feature.

Alphadia Genesis will retail on Steam for the introductory price point $11.99 when it launches in January. A hard release date has yet to be revealed, so check back soon for something more concrete.
