KEMCO has revealed that its fantasy RPG Bonds of the Skies is headed to the Switch. Pre-purchase options for the game are set to go live on the eShop tomorrow.
In this game, you'll follow the story of Eil, who begins the adventure in the middle of his coming-of-age ceremony. During this event, his town is attacked by a demon and fully engulfed in flames, forcing Eil to partner up with Nogard (the little blue dragon) in order to save the day.
Bonds of the Skies actually launched on 3DS just a couple of years ago and releases on the PlayStation store today (hence the trailer above). We don't have a release date or pricing for the Switch version just yet, but hopefully this information from the game's press release will tide you over until then:
Form Partnerships with Grimoas!
Through your adventure, you will come across different Grimoas. By partnering with Grimoas, Eil and his friends can use hidden powers. Strengthen the bonds with them to be victorious in battles!
Synchro Gauge and Special Skills
You can set up to five mastered skills, so long as the total costs of the skills do not exceed the characters' cost limit. In addition, when the Synchro Gauge with the Grimoas reaches 100%, you can use special skills, more powerful than normal!
- Turn-based battles with a pixelated dot animation
- A vast variety of skills to master
- Collect all the Grimoas and unleash the Synchro Skills!
- A wide range of achievements, including quests to complete and items to collect
The pre-purchase period, set to begin tomorrow, will offer players the chance to get 10% off the full asking price. If you're interested, make sure to keep an eye out for it appearing on the eShop tomorrow.
