13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the critically acclaimed strategy adventure game from Vanillaware, will come to Nintendo Switch in April 2022.
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim was initially released without much fanfare for the PlayStation 4 in 2019. However, the game swiftly became a hit through positive word of mouth and surpassed the sales expectations of publisher Atlus.
Set in 1980s Japan, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim follows 13 high school students who become entangled in a conflict between mechs and Kaiju. So far, so typical, you might think. But, the game’s non-linear structure and sprawling narrative make it stand out from its contemporaries and have earned it a devoted fanbase.
The game was nominated in the Best Narrative category at The Game Awards 2020, and deservedly so.
Nintendo Switch owners can now look forward to embarking on this beautiful genre-blending adventure when it’s released – via publisher Sega – on April 12, 2022.
Here is the Nintendo Switch announcement trailer.
