This dark fantasy tactical RPG has been brought to life by industry luminaries, including tactical RPG veteran Masayuki Horikawa (Fire Emblem series director and scenario/level designer; Kingdom Hearts III planning) with a “star-studded” voice cast that includes Kyle McCarley (13 Sentinels: Aegis of Ruin, NieR: Automata), Allegra Clark (Apex Legends, Dragon Age: Inquisition), David Lodge (Persona 5, Final Fantasy XV) and Lucien Dodge (Fire Emblem: Three Houses, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series).
After the sudden appearance of the ruthless Mort armies, hope has faded from across the land. Their macabre forces have descended upon civilizations, their nightly raids leaving destruction in their wake. As entire nations fall to the onslaught, the Ashen Hawk Brigade, mercenaries who specialise in surprise tactics, band together to fight back against the invading legions.
You are tasked with leading the Ashen Hawk Brigade in tactical skirmishes on 3D maps, directing units across the battlefield before issuing commands to attack, defend or deploy skills each turn. Even seemingly insurmountable odds can be overcome by mastering sneak attacks for extra damage or powerful combo strikes from multiple characters.
Outfitting the party with powerful gear will help your efforts, turning hard-earned spoils of victory into resources that can be used to craft mighty weapons and armour. Their skills can be upgraded to unlock combat abilities that can turn your ragtag troop of underdogs into courageous champions.
You will also be able to witness powerful moments unfold between members of the Ashen Hawk Brigade, the characters learning more about their allies and the world around them. Their rise from obscurity to folk heroes will soon see them grapple with their dark past as a deadly and despised organisation called Faithless Reapers.
“Following the success of Ender Lilies, we aimed to approach a new genre ideal for sharing our love of dark fantasy stories,” explains Binary Haze Interactive CEO Hiroyuki Kobayashi. “Redemption Reapers’ tactical RPG combat and emotional storytelling combine for a memorable experience we cannot wait to share with the world in early 2023.”
Redemption Reapers will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in February 2023.
