Battle Chasers: Nightwar released in October last year on consoles and PC, with the Nintendo Switch nowhere to be found. That’s all about to change as Battle Chasers will release next week on May 15.
This has been a long time coming for the studio, and when I played the original release on PlayStation 4, was thoroughly entertained enjoyed what Airship Syndicate created with the existing comic book property, effectively reviving the series as a video game.
A brand new gameplay trailer shows off the game’s tactically demanding turn-based combat and how it’ll look on the Switch.
Originally launched via a Kickstarter campaign in 2015, a whopping 14,175 people backed the project, allowing Airship Syndicate to create what we see today.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG inspired by the classic console greats, featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, and a rich story driven by exploration of the world. It features classic turn-based combat with a unique overcharge mana system and incredible Battle Bursts. Players can explore beautiful, randomly-generated dungeons loaded with traps, puzzles, secrets and loot and an overworld peppered with hidden dungeons, rare bosses and randomly appearing friends and foes. Build your adventuring party by choosing three of six available heroes from the classic Battle Chasers comic series, each with unique abilities, perks, items and dungeon skills.
