PQube and Octeto Studios have announced that Sky Oceans: Wings For Hire is “coming soon” to Nintendo Switch.

It has been centuries since The Great Scattering, a cataclysmic event that shattered the surface of the planet and threw up large portions of land toward the skies. Most of human civilization was destroyed in the process, but the remnants of the planet can still be found in the atmosphere where humanity has formed tribes and adapted to live in the skies.

This classic JRPG-inspired game is set in the open skies, where, playing as Glenn Windwalker, you will have the chance to command a group of rag-tag sky pirates and experience adrenaline-filled turn-based dogfights after he is thrust into an adventure of a lifetime.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Explore A Stunning, Vibrant World: Whether you travel on foot through beautifully bustling towns or take to the open skies within your airship, ‘Sky Oceans: Wings For Hire’ rewards those who explore. Explore diverse locations to build new relationships, and discover additional missions to uncover secret treasures!
  • Recruit Crew Members and Form Unbreakable Bonds: Recruit your very own crew of swash-buckling Sky Pirates one-by-one. Each unique member comes with their own diverse backgrounds, strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and you are responsible to keep them happy for bonus efficiency in battles. There are multiple dialog options while interacting with characters in ‘Sky Oceans: Wings For Hire’. Your choices will impact on how they feel about you, so choose your decisions carefully!
  • Stylistic, Strategic Turn-Based Combat: Clash with adversaries in the open skies in thrilling dogfights, beautifully rendered with gorgeous, screen-popping UI elements. Tactically choose your attacks or take the option to evade incoming fire from your enemies! After long battles in the skies, it is important to maintain your team’s safety. Upgrade your team’s offensive and defensive power with extra weapons, reinforced equipment, and agility improvements to help you survive!

Sky Oceans: Wings For Hire will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
