Stranger of Sword City’s character art is so good I’m dying right now
You’ll have to pardon me for not being up on never-released-in-America Japanese games, but look at this freaking game. Stranger of Sword City is a dungeon-crawler RPG, and while the 3D dungeon crawling part looks sparse and architecturally uneventful, the 2D artwork is insane. Somebody needs to loan me a PS Vita right now.
Actually, loan it to me by March 22, 2016. That’s when it’ll come to American shores, with upgraded graphics and presentation from the 2014 Japanese release. This bolder, badder version is also coming to Xbox One sometime in 2016, too, presumably after the PS Vita gets its paws on it.
Again, look at these screens! I might actually put up with the JRPG menu hell if I get to soak in visuals like these. Ha, I say that as if Western RPGs don’t get lost in the weeds with their menus, too.
Stranger of Sword City (I even like the name!) hits PS Vita on March 22, and Xbox One sometime in 2016 as well.
