Famitsu print ads - Langrisser I & II, Splatoon Koshien 2019 Official Fanbook

This week's Famitsu has some new print ads for Switch-related products. First up is a two-page spread for the recently released Langrisser I & II. This one seems to be languishing at retail, so hopefully a sizable print ad will drum up some interest.

Second is yet another print ad for the Splatoon Koshien 2019 Official Fanbook. Nintendo has put out no less than 4 different ads for this book! I guess they really, really want fans to know it's available.

Since long ago, the legendary sword “Langrisser” has been said to grant infinite power to those who wield it.

Langrisser I & II seeing release in South Korea

Let's hope other places as well!

Arc System Works Asia has confirmed that Langrisser I & II will see a release on Switch in South Korea. The title is slated to launch sometime in 2019, but no other details were shared. We'll have to hang tight for price, specific release date info, and supported languages. Hopefully the game's launch outside of Japan bodes well for worldwide plans.
