CIRCLE Entertainment and Something Classic Games have revealed that Shadows of Adam will be bringing its stylish take on the JRPG formula to Switch early next month. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 3rd May.
The game features multiple playable characters, fast-paced battles, SNES-style graphics, a soundtrack made up of more than 40 tracks, and the convenience to save anywhere you like. A press release for the game says that, whether playing on the TV or in handheld mode, its "glorious pixels will immerse you in the adventure and its memorable scenes". Ooer.
Speaking of the adventure, here's a quick blurb:
Tucked away from the outside world by the impenetrable haze of the Misty Woods, the village of Adam has mostly lived in peace since the days of the Wraith War. The dark power that fueled that war has vanished, but darkness is descending once more and Adam's legendary hero, Orazio, is no more.
10 years ago he left without explanation and never returned, leaving his son and adopted daughter to wrestle with the dark secret he left behind—a secret that must now be revealed if the children hope to save both Adam and their departed father, though its revelation could unhinge the world.
This Nintendo Switch release is the first time that Shadows of Adam has launched on console. It's also a 'complete' edition, with previous DLC, ‘Guild of the Artificers,’ included.
You'll be able to pre-purchase the game from the Nintendo eShop on 26th April with a 10% discount, making the price $13.49 / €13,49; it'll then launch on 3rd May for $14.99 / €14.99.
