Freedom Games and TRAGsoft have confirmed that their modern monster-taming RPG Coromon will release on Nintendo Switch.
Promising a “refreshing take on the monster-taming genre set in a charming pixel-art world,” you play as an aspiring researcher who joins a technologically advanced organisation called Lux Solis.
Assigned to a specialised team known as the Titan Taskforce, you are challenged to investigate the six Titans in the region of Velua. However, you soon discover that extraterrestrial forces are attempting to bring a mysterious elemental-type to your planet which causes the fundament of the world to slowly collapse.
You will receive assistance from Lux Solis, who will prove you with useful gadgets. But, it is up to you to gather the Titan Essences and undo the damage that has been dealt to the Earth’s core.
With more than 120 Coromon to catch – which each has its own individual animations and iconic designs – the gameplay experience has looked to blend elements from the JRPG genre with the monster-taming formula.
That will encompass a “lengthy and compelling” story, the need to face off against powerful bosses and to overcome puzzles in challenging dungeons. The stamina-based battle system will require you to choose your skills with care, whether they affect your opponent’s stamina, apply conditions or deal damage.
“We’re honoured to be able to provide Coromon to you, a game we’ve poured our heart in,” the developer explains. “Coromon is our tribute to the classics of the genre. While staying loyal to the core gameplay, we wanted to add new gameplay features but also keep the retro look, by using a modern pixel art style.”
Coromon will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q1 2022.
