Publisher PQube has announced that Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2 will be coming to Switch this year. The game is a sequel to Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story and continues with the same themes, allowing you to build your school as you see fit as its principal, nurturing the students as they tackle fearsome foes with classic turn-based combat.
You'll be able to completely customise what kind of school you'd like to create, whether it be focusing on building a legion of warriors, or practicing magic to rival that of Hogwarts. Once you cultivate a set of competent students, you can then send them out into the wild to prove their worth and raise your school's prestige.
Here are a list of features from PQube:
- Become the principal of a brand-new hero academy, make tough narrative-based decisions and run it your way.
- Nurture brave young students with RPG-like elements to reach their heroic potential.
Challenging turn-based combat with unique tactical puzzle mechanics make fighting Valthira's monsters even more thrilling!
- Design your school from choosing and upgrading buildings to curating students' course of study, improve your reputation and become a top-grade academy!
- Explore a vibrant and dynamic world with many regions and factions - be wary of the monsters and creatures who roam the wild!
The game is out now via Steam's early access, however no firm release date has been set for the Switch as of yet. Regardless, this one is definitely bringing those Fantasy Life vibes, right down to its visual style and gameplay.
