Saviors of Sapphire Wings / Stranger of Sword City Revisited Is Out Now

Sapphire Wings / Stranger of Sword City Revisited brings two epic adventures to Switch and PC.

Saviors of Sapphire Wings / Stranger of Sword City Revisited

Publisher NIS America has announced that Saviors of Sapphire Wings / Stranger of Sword City Revisited is now available for the Switch and PC in North America. This release, which bundles together Japanese developer Experience’s new dungeon-crawling RPG Saviors of Sapphire Wings with an enhanced port of their 2014 release Stranger of Sword City, will release in Europe on March 19.

Want to see what’s in store in these two epic DRPGs? If so, you’re in luck. NISA released a launch trailer, showcasing both titles in action. Get a look at the games’ dungeon-delving action and striking monster designs in the trailer below:

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

  • Knights, Assemble! Muster all your might and cunning to confront the forces of the Overlord of Darkness
  • Assemble your party, develop your own playstyle with traps and tactics, and exploit your enemies’ elemental weaknesses to overcome the most powerful servants of darkness
  • Bound by Battle – Lead allies into battle and keep them alive to strengthen your bonds and unlock their true potential. Off the battlefield, have one-on-one conversations with your comrades to discuss their history and outlook on your adventures
  • Revisiting Stranger of Sword City – Put your dungeon-delving skills to the test in another thrilling adventure with Stranger of Sword City Revisited! This remaster of the classic RPG comes with additional content.

In celebration of the game’s launch, NIS America is holding a contest from now until March 19. Dubbed the “Dungeon Discovery Challenge,” the publisher is asking fans to submit a photo of a location or environment that they think would make the ultimate dungeon. On March 24, five winners will be chosen to receive an autographed giclee and Limited Edition Nintendo Switch copy of Sapphire Wings / Stranger of Sword City Revisited.
