??

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- JANUARY 20, 2011 --?Atlus U.S.A., Inc., today announced that fans can be a part of history?for the upcoming release of Radiant Historia, the?time-travel RPG for Nintendo DS.? Starting today until January 28, 2011, fans can vote between two stellar pieces of art to help choose which will ultimately go on the music CD and sleeve, included in each and every copy. Click here to vote!?

" Radiant Historia is all about choices," said Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR?or Sales at Atlus, depending on the active timeline. "And now we're challenging fans to make their first choice before the game is even in their hands: which CD art would look best on the bonus piano music CD by famed composer Yoko Shimomura? Just like the game, if you have second thoughts, you can come back as many times as you want and vote again. Try not to get too used to the concept, though, since there aren't many areas in life where you get do-overs like this. I should know," he whispered, staring off into a beautiful crimson sunset.

Channeling the heart and soul of fan favorite 16-bit RPG classics, Radiant Historia combines a unique position-based battle system, intricate hand-drawn details, and one of the best soundtracks in recent memory as it takes gamers on a steampunk adventure back and forth through time.

Radiant Historia is currently scheduled to release on February 22, 2011 for Nintendo DS™.??To learn more,?visit the official website < [a href="http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=k4cqkicab&et=1104257090481&s=9087&e=001gU1CjquV7VK4giEHbT6zz-9By01qVH4jkGqz7lzLeQACbPt_QzNq5PJ7PA0Ep5p3my0Jf8cpMDkj7JaxVyEbyB46PjI4xDZGW0yRsqsmoiVRNuJ098lKHypoj3g9rk6o" linktype="link" shape="rect" track="on" class="releaselink" target="_new">LINK].
