"Forgotten Legions tells the story of a character named Merkhovious, who is apparently a wizard or some other type of magic user. He started using dark magic and was quickly banished from the town of Riverkeep, because the higher-ups there frown upon that sort of thing. Now Merkhovious is back, and he’s brought an army of undead fiends with him to take revenge on those who threw him out. In an odd twist, you are actually in control of the supposed evildoers, trying to take out the knights and townsfolk of Riverkeep. While this would make for an interesting plot, the story never really extends beyond the game’s intro video and what is described in the digital instruction manual.", writes NintendoLife.
