Dark Light

It’s another exciting week for RPG fans with two eagerly anticipated games released on Nintendo Switch.

It’s somewhat baffling that Persona 5 still hasn’t come to the Nintendo Switch. We can only assume that Sony has Atlus in a contractual stranglehold. Action RPG Persona 5 Strikers is no replacement, but it’s a welcome addition to the Switch library nonetheless.

Taking place after the events of Persona 5, the game follows Joker and friends on a journey across Japan to solve a series of strange events. It’s an appropriately stylish spin-off, but to make the most of it, knowledge of the franchise and an appreciation for Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay is a must.

More traditional RPG mechanics are on offer in Bravely Default II from Claytechworks and Square Enix. The game features a brand new cast of characters and setting, plus a refreshed take on the Brave Point battle system. If you want to try before you buy, the excellent Nintendo eShop demo features around five-hours of gameplay.

Other new releases include narrative-driven exploration game Aery – A Journey Beyond Time and sci-fi action RPG, Hellpoint.

Here’s the full lineup of this week’s Nintendo Switch games. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late arrivals.
