The idea of mixing an RPG with a sports game might not be unique – Golf Story got there a long time ago – but Japanese indie studio ArticNet is giving it a try regardless.

RPGolf Legends is set in a fantasy world where all of the golf holes have been sealed up. You must join forces with "the spirit of a golf club" and "embark on a fantastic action-golfing adventure to save golf in the world".

There are 54 holes set across six unique environments, and you'll be able to play tournaments and matches against various NPCs. As you'd expect from an RPG, there's a class system with "unique skills" and you'll be able to explore a massive open-world environment "full of characters and different quests to complete". Crafting is also part of the experience, as are your typical RPG dungeons.

RPGolf Legends launches globally on the Switch eShop on January 20th, 2022, and will cost USD 29.99 / EUR 29.99.
