Aegis Rim on Nintendo Switch in 2022

Lovers of big robots or Japanese games, rejoice: 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the latest production from the Vanillaware studio, will be exported from the PlayStation 4 starting next year. Its publisher Atlus has just formalized the upcoming release of the future cult game on Nintendo Switch through a new trailer. Enough to considerably extend the audience of the title which amply deserves to be played by the greatest number …

Mecha stories

It is therefore on April 12 that 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will benefit from a brand new port on Nintendo Switch. However, there is nothing new to report in the short trailer formalizing this version. The nomad will thus welcome its first title stamped Vanillaware. Historically oriented on Sony consoles, this studio is more than renowned within the Japanese industry for its cult games such as Odin sphere and Dragon’s crown, among others. We hope that this release on the Nintendo hybrid will be the first in a long series; with, perhaps, the eventual arrival of the rest of the studio catalog.

Notice to fans of games that are unique in their genres: 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a game of too rare a caliber today. Neither totally a visual novel, nor totally a strategy game, this title published by Atlus navigates between its influences with a certain sense of style and class. The story unfolds from 13 different perspectives – 13 unique characters who will be controlled in turn during different game sections. Thus, the player will explore the universe of the title through phases of adventure in 2D rich in dialogues… Before being propelled into RTS-style battle scenes, piloting giant mechas against Kaijus, or giant deadly monsters.

From the Vita … to the Switch

The output of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has long been an Arlésienne in the media and player communities. First announced for PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2018, the title was postponed to the following year – before seeing its nomadic version simply canceled by its developer. It took until 2020 to finally see the title land in our regions, exclusively on the Sony home console.
