NIS America has a new trailer too Saviors of Sapphire Wings released. The new video introduces you to some of the new content and features, including new classes, gameplay elements, and new dungeons. The dungeon RPG is due to appear in the west on March 19, 2021, then with a special bonus. The game is the whole adventure Stranger of Sword City Revisited at. Not bad! Another good thing: The double pack even appears physically for Switch with us *.
If you haven’t heard from Saviors of Sapphire Wings, it’s not surprising. It is a localization of Blue-Winged Chevalier, released last year for PlayStation Vita in Japan. For the new localization, NIS America is changing the platform, which is understandable in view of the popularity gap between PS Vita and Nintendo Switch.
… is actually Blue-Winged Chevalier, is actually …
Blue-Winged Chevalier, on the other hand, is a comprehensive remake of Students of Round, which first appeared in Japan in 2010 for PCs and a little later also for Xbox 360 and PSP. The game now has its third, completely different name.
It is no coincidence that Stranger of Sword City Revisited is included in the game. The title is set in the same universe, albeit several hundred years later. Stranger of Sword City Revisited has already been localized for PS Vita, Xbox One and PCs, but the Switch version is of course also new in the West. At least you can guess it from the title: Stranger of Sword City Revisited is a greatly expanded and improved version of the original game.
You can get confused there. So here is an outline of the background story of Saviors of Sapphire Wings.
In Saviors of Sapphire Wings, players explore a story of war, darkness and the power of friendship. The world was brought to ruin after the Lord of Darkness, Ol = Ohma, defeated the Knights of the Round – the last bastion of mankind. One of these fallen knights is brought back to life 100 years later and gathers a new generation of heroes to defeat Ol = Ohma’s forces and restore light and hope. Players explore dungeons, use traps and use various skills to defeat the powerful monsters. In this way, they strengthen the bond between the allies to unleash the true potential of the RPG.
In the dungeon RPG, all your guile is required to put an end to the machinations of the dark lord. You put your group together, develop your own style of play from traps and tactics, exploit the weaknesses of your opponents and thus defeat even the strongest servants of evil. Apart from the fighting, you interact with your comrades in order to strengthen your bonds and thus your fighting strength.
