More action JRPG goodness is now rumbling on the Horizon for Switch fans.
Compile Heart has announced that Arc of Alchemist, originally a PS4-exclusive title, will be making its way to Nintendo Switch! The game will be launching physically and digitally on 10 October 2019 in Japan.
Check out the Switch version reveal trailer below!
The Switch version of the game will apparently come with new features, as translated by Gematsu below:
- Control All Party Members – Control all party members, not just Quinn. Freely form your party and enjoy battle and field traversal while operating your favorite character. Whether it is Sharon, who can attack a group of enemies in one swoop from a distance, or Sandra, who specializes in defense, each character has their own unexpected quirks.
- Easier to Play – By adding high-value items that can be converted into money, it is now easier to fully realize your base, making character development easier as well. Some user interface elements have also been adjusted.
For now, there doesn’t seem to be any plans to localize the game in English. However, the original PS4 release is also making its way to the West this Winter – so a western Switch release might not be too far-fetched.
We’ll report back when we hear more.
