505 Games Publishing Re:Legend For Nintendo Switch
Developed by Magnus Games, Re:Legend is a life simulator that’s set in a fantastical world. You’ll be able to grow crops, raise monsters, dig up precious metals, forge weapons, and do battle with creatures. The game features a multiplayer component as well, so you can join up to form a team of four. This one’s probably still a ways off from release, with the PC version going into Early Access later this year. While no date has been set, we wouldn’t expect to see this one on Switch until 2019.
Independent publisher 505 Games will publish the award-winning JRPG Re:Legend, from Kuala Lumpur-based developer Magnus Games Studio. Coming to Early Access on Steam for PC in 2018, with additional plans for console releases on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, Re:Legend is an all-encompassing RPG-simulator hybrid that combines farming and life-simulation mechanics with monster-raising and multiplayer features. Players can build and expand their village through a variety of activities including farming, fishing and crafting, while venturing through a dangerous world filled with challenges. Raising nearly $500,000 USD on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter, Re:Legend is the most successfully backed game campaign in the history of South-east Asia.
Players begin their adventure on Vokka Island in the land of Ethia, where they are tasked with starting a new life and must find a way to recover their lost memories, setting the stage for an great adventure as they learn to survive on the island by cultivating the land, befriending villagers, expanding and growing the village and raising their very own magical monsters, known as “Magnus.”
Game Features Will Include:
Monster-Raising – Raise mythical creatures known as “Magnus”, monsters who live in the land of Ethia, the world where Vokka Island is located.
