Publisher Circle Entertainment’s upcoming SRPG, Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons, will release digitally on the Nintendo Switch eShop on December 17 in North America.

Developed by Rideon Japan, the game marks with fifth entry in the Mercenaries franchise. Featuring striking character designs by artist Masayoshi Nishimura, the game introduces several updates and new features, such as the use of fully 3D Battle Maps, updated visuals and audio, and more.

To celebrate the release, the publisher has put out a new trailer for the game. It offers a look at Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons’ fantasy world, strategic battles, and colorful cast of characters.

Finally, while Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons is the fifth game in the series, newcomers won’t have to worry about feeling lost. The title is a standalone story set in the Mercenaries universe. That said, you won’t need to have experienced the previous games to follow the events of this installment. However, if you do feel like catching up, then you’re in luck. The entire series is now available on the Switch eShop.

Here’s a full list of features courtesy of the publisher:

  • Experience an amazing story with two distinct paths and a diverse cast of characters.
  • Lots of optional battles that allow you to see more of the world and level up your team.
  • 3D Battle Maps, giving greater control and depth in strategic play.
  • Use Blaze Exceed, a key power that can turn the tide of battle.
  • Incredible depth beyond battles, as you carefully manage equipment, skills and classes for your team.


So, are you looking forward to dominating the battlefield when the game hits the eShop later this month? If you played the previous entries in the series, what’d you think of them? As always, we love to hear what you think. Be sure to sound off in the comments section and let us know.
