Save the world in Fantasy Hero ~unsigned legacy~ by choosing from one of four heroes and reclaiming what was lost to the Decoders! Set yourself on fire and charge head in, or pulverise them with powerful throws. Like keeping a safe distance from your opponents? Then, pick them off with projectiles, or send your robot in to do your bidding. The variety of combat styles and skills will let players build heroes to their liking.

It's rare that I can't find positives to talk about in detail, and it's a real shame that Fantasy Hero ~Unsigned Legacy~ game wasn't improved in any way, but simply ported with no tangible improvements over the PS Vita original. Fantasy Hero has the occasional solid mechanic in place, but neither the story nor its gameplay boast any interest or originality. This game may have been considered pretty average upon its original release in 2014, but by modern standards it's incredibly poor.

Fantasy Hero ~unsigned legacy~ features some interesting progression mechanisms and its characters offer some development potential but unfortunately, the action quickly gets dull and repetitive. Adding to this, the game's overall audiovisual component is clearly dated and there are several bugs and errors that make this game something difficult to recommend.

The nature of Fantasy Hero ~unsigned legacy~'s mission based structure lends itself well to the pick up and play style of Nintendo Switch, but there's nowhere near enough compelling content here to make it worth your time. A dull plot filled to the brim with typical JRPG tropes fails to give you much of an incentive to progress, while the combat itself is far too basic and at times punishingly difficult. This may have been a passable experience upon its original release, but in 2018, this port has little to offer.

It's never fun to play a game that's so fundamentally uninteresting that you really struggle to even watch the screen as you're playing. Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy is a painfully generic and completely forgettable action JRPG, and there's just so much better stuff out there that deserves a port to this console that I'm almost offended that this one, somehow, was singled out for a release on the Nintendo Switch.
