Battle Chasers: Nightwar hits Switch tomorrow, special nostalgic promo art shared to celebrate the game's launch

To celebrate the launch of Battle Chasers: Nightwar on Nintendo Switch on 15 May, we wondered what it would have looked like on the shelves during the 1980/90s, the golden age of JRPG gaming that inspired it. Airship Syndicate's critically-acclaimed RPG combines dungeon crawling, turn-based combat and a rich story, all presented in an epic JRPG-style, and is based on the comic book series by Joe Madureira that debuted ten years ago, in 1998.

“Battle Chasers: Nightwar draws its inspiration by the Japanese RPG greats of the 1990s, so it’s great to envision what the game would have looked like if it had been released way back when (back when gluten and casino-mechanics in games were not a thing yet),” said Philipp Brock, PR & Marketing Director, THQNordic. “The game has been warmly received by critics the world over since its initial launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so it’s great to finally be bringing it to Nintendo Switch.”

The story of Vigil Games continues in our Battle Chasers: Nightwar Documentary. Featuring interviews with Joe Maduriera, Ryan Stefanelli and more, we explore their time at Crytek USA, the beginnings of Airship Syndicate and the development of Battle Chasers: Nightwar.

Turn-Based Law Enforcement Coming to This Is the Police 2

Vienna, Austria/Minsk, Belarus, April 13th, 2018: Back in the big city, Police Chief Jack Boyd, the protagonist of This Is the Police, was too deeply mired in bureaucracy to pay much attention to field tactics. But in Sharpwood, a cold frontier town where a young woman named Lilly Reed has recently become sheriff, you'll need to take a new approach: you'll have to take your cops under direct control during particularly difficult and dangerous missions.

In such situations, the game will switch to a new turn-based combat mode system. Gather a team of your finest police officers (or use your drunk and stupid bums - you don't always have the luxury of being choosy!). Take up advantageous positions and don't forget: the police are supposed to arrest suspects, not kill them. You'll have to carefully study the terrain, constantly adapt your plans, stealthily approach your suspects and use non-lethal weapons and equipment. Unless, of course, you bartered them for a dozen cans of tuna. Sometimes gunfights are almost impossible to avoid, but be careful: This Is the Police 2 doesn't have hit points. A single bullet can cost a cop their life.

Legend of Kay on Switch on May 29th, 2018

Vienna/AUSTRIA, April 6th, 2018: Be excited for May 29th, as this marks the arrival of the quircky Action-RPG Legend of Kay on Nintendo Switch.

Since its initial release on the PS2™, Legend of Kay has been well received by both critics and consumers alike and was subsequently ported to the Nintendo DS™. 10 years later, the game has been remastered and ported to PC/Mac/Linux, PS3™, Xbox 360 and PS4™ and Wii U™ under the name Legend of Kay Anniversary.

As Legend of Kay's timeless style and genre haven't lost their appeal - and THQ Nordic wants to continue its strategy of making the game available to players of all kinds of platforms - it will be coming to Nintendo's latest console, Nintendo Switch on May 29th.

Retailers list potential release dates for Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Sonic Mania Plus

Battle Chasers: Nightwar shouldn't be too far off from release on the Switch eShop, and Sonic Mania Plus is due out sometime this Summer. Neither THQ or SEGA have given concrete dates for these games, but retailer listings have just popped up with new information. Target currently has the retail version of Battle Chasers: Nightwar listed for Nov. 13th, 2018, while Amazon says Sonic Mania Plus is due out Aug. 28th, 2018. The Battle Chasers release date seems a bit too far off to me, even if it's just for the retail release. The Sonic Mania Plus release is definitely plausible.
