If you're in the mood for a new slice of JRPG action, you might just be in luck, as Asdivine Hearts II has just plonked itself onto the Switch eShop. Yep, it's available today.
The game picks up two years after the events of the original game, Asdivine Hearts, with Zack and friends finding themselves heading off on another quest. This time, the gang hope to save the parallel world of Archelio, which is on the verge of being frozen in ice. In a nice touch, the game features a summary of the previous game so that you can jump right into the sequel if you prefer.
Speaking of the previous game, it's worth noting that we had mixed feelings after our playthrough for review. We said that Asdivine Hearts is "entirely competent but difficult to fully recommend; it ticks many boxes from its retro inspirations, and players looking for pure comfort gaming will find elements to enjoy, but as an experience it’s ultimately underwhelming". Naturally, we're hoping that this sequel might give us just a little bit more.
These screenshots should hopefully give you a better understanding of what to expect:
Asdivine Hearts II has you leading up to six characters into battle, destroying onslaughts of powerful foes along the way, and also gives you the ability to upgrade rare weapons and learn new skills. As noted above, it launches today and can be purchased for £11.69 / $12.99.
