Happinet and Matrix Software have revealed that Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia is in development exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
Marking the return of the turn-based strategy series after a 20-year absence, you will have the chance to return to a familiar fantasy world that’s been brought to life by scenario writer Kenji Terada (Batman: Dark Tomorrow, Final Fantasy I – III), art director and character designer Raita Kazama (Puzzle & Dragons, Xenoblade Chronicles), and composer Tenpei Sato (Brigandine: Grand Edition, Disgaea 1 -5).
Runersia is a continent that was created by the Rune God, and a place where mana rains down endlessly. Five Mana Stones have been passed through history alongside human nations and were eventually embedded into Brigandine equipment to create Rune Knights – special individuals that can wield the mana power and stones in their armor to cast skills, magic, and summon ancient monsters.
There are six Brigandine countries of Runersia that each has conflicting ideals, beliefs, histories, and faiths. They are divided by Brigandines of Justice, Glory, Freedom, Sanctity, and Ego, although the sixth country exists without Brigandine.
The countries have now waged a war to conquer and unify the continent under one nation. You will decide how your legend will unfold by selecting a country and creating an army of Rune Knights.
Your goal is to win battles to expand your country’s influence until Runersia has been taken over. There are more than 40 base locations to explore, over 100 unique knights to encounter, and 50 types of monsters to command as you battle it out on hexagonal grid maps.
Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Spring 2020.
