JRPG “Mugen Souls” Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2023
NIS America recently announced that “cult classic” RPG Mugen Souls is coming to the Nintendo Switch in Spring 2023.
The Nintendo Switch version of the Mugen Souls will feature all original and extra content “true to the original Japanese release”, and will include English language support for both text and audio.
Mugen Souls is being developed as a cooperation between Idea Factory and Eastasiasoft Limited. The game was originally developed by Idea Factory in cooperation with Compile Heart. Mugen Souls is described as a “vibrant RPG featuring multiple open worlds to explore, extensive character customization, and strategic turn-based combat on free-roaming battle maps.”
Here’s the official breakdown of Mugen Souls from NIS America, followed by a recent trailer:
Join Chou-Chou on her mission to conquer the universe and its seven worlds! In this anime-style JRPG, you’ll take command of trusty companion Altis, loyal peon Ryuto and more, as Chou-Chou turns the heroes and demon lords of each world into her personal servants and thus frees the universe of conflict under her ultimate control. But will it all go as planned?
Mugen Souls features turn-based combat on a free-roaming battle map, party and skill customization, expansive worlds to explore, and plenty of that “moe” aesthetic fans adore! Destroy crystals on the battlefield to activate Hyper Mode, execute combos and use Moe Kill techniques to enslave enemies, transforming them into items by exploiting their weaknesses. Create a unique cast of minions by customizing body parts, facial expressions, job classes, and more! This updated version of Mugen Souls includes all prior extras while faithfully adapting the content of the Japanese original, making it the definitive way to experience this cult classic JRPG!
