Hi.
I bought the PS4 version last year, but i rarely to play since i have no PS4 machine at the moment. I can play my ps4 games by borrowing ps4 from my game shop owner ( i play in his shop).
Now i will consider the Switch version (with a lot of improvements such as gesture animation, attitudes, mini games, sub quest, etc) and "Eliminate" (Not playing anymore, but still keep the games) my ps4 version.
I can say Earthlock was a Classic JRPG like Final Fantasy X that created by Western peoples.
The Switch version include Japanese language Options as well with English. In the future, it will be added with another European languages.
Go get it.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

I don't get why this game is €25 on Switch, yet it released on Wii U towards the end of last year for €10. #SwitchTax

I'm currently playing this on my Xbox One S, and I always struggle to stop playing, because it's actually quite addictive to do just one more thing or to upgrade just one more level to make your party stronger. The game is THAT entertaining, in my opinion.

And from what I've seen in that video, the Switch version is more or less the same. It is a great game if you're into jRPG's, and it has a little bit of everything that most of these type of games have. Challenging puzzles as well as a bit of grinding to power up, smart battle system and an interesting story, so if all of that even remotely interests you, I'd say give it a go.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE once again, you're uninformed and just complaining.

@Deathwalka
This version on the Switch is the overhauled rerelease with a ton of improvements. So much so, that on PS4 and Xbox they took down the old version and uploaded a new one (this version); this was a bigger update than just a patch.

Anyway, the game is quite good. If you're a fan of JRPGs of the early 00's then you'll enjoy this, too. It's a solid imitation/love letter of those games with nicely paced battle system and an engaging, well-written story.
Reviews of the old version were often around the 8/10 on several sites.

Hope you enjoy.

@Anti-Matter I don’t think he’s complaining. It’s a valid question.

You were ignoring him but now you don’t. Were you missing him or his comments

I like the feel and looks of it but I'll hold out for a Physical version consider it cost $29.99, they should release a Physical copy as well. I like it but will hold out for a Physical copy of which it most likely will have one if they hedge their bets right.

@SwitchForce I don't think that's going to happen, seeing as none of the versions on the other consoles was physical either, so I can't see the Switch being unique in that, especially taking into account the higher cost of cartridges, so that "most likely" will probably never happen.

Having said that, I can partially understand not wanting to pay that amount of money for it. But a price drop might be quite a long way off: on the Xbox One, the official price is still $29.99 as well, and on the PS4 it's only 2 bucks cheaper, so the Switch version is apparently priced accordingly, and it's the latest version as well, which brings with it a number of improvements.

In any case, even at that price, the game is well worth it. With all that the game offers, you can easily sink 40 to 60 hours into it, and then some, especially if you want to find everything there is to find, and want to complete all the quests. If this type of game interests you, and your only reason to skip it is because there isn't a physical version, then you might just miss out on a really entertaining game...

EDIT:
Hm, it seems that the PS4 actually did have a physical version, but the version I got on the Xbox One, was a download code.

@ThanosReXX, I already found two eShop games becoming Physical and they are Human: Fall Flat & Flame in the Flood. So if you just because you think they won't they will doesn't mean someone else will create it for those eShop game creators. I think if they make it fun and people like it someone will pickup the game but I think those helping the creators go physical see the writing on the wall and will take the jump they might not make that many but they know something we obviously don't see or know about. I got Flame in the Flood as eShop but already placed order for Physical version.
