Hoshi wo Miru Hito, an RPG which was only ever released on the Famicom back in 1987, is set to be given a new lease of life on Switch this summer.

The game is a sci-fi RPG which is known for being a particularly difficult game, partly thanks to a lack of instruction on what to actually do. It's set in a cyberpunk-style future where everyone has a sort of sixth sense, and these powers can be used in battle to fight off a variety of monsters.

The new Switch port is being handled by City Connection, which has owned the rights to the game since 2016. It's scheduled to launch this summer and appears to be getting a worldwide release, meaning those in the west will be able to experience it for the very first time.

We never expected to see this one on Switch. This console really is getting everything, isn't it? (OK, nearly everything).

Thanks to Greatsong for the tip!
