Record Of Agarest War Launches On Switch
To celebrate 15 years of the series, Aksys Games have announced that the cult classic tactical RPG Record of Agarest War is making it’s way to the Nintendo Switch and is already available for those in North America.
Record of Agarest War, or Agarest: Generations of War as it’s known in Europe is a tactical RPG series that started life on the PS3/Xbox 360 back in 2007. The series acts much like early Fire Emblem games where most of the action is presented on a top down map before zipping into one and one combat.
The plot of the game is best summed up by Aksys:
As is the way in war, many died on both sides, gods and mortals alike, and the war left Agarest broken, blackened, and dead. The gods wept for their paradise, and in a final act of creation, sacrificed themselves to bring life back to its charred and twisted surface. Though the gods are long dead, the withering darkness that caused their war is not. Imprisoned for millennia, its bonds have begun to weaken, and a shadow once again spreads across the surface of the world.
Players have to battle through an epic story that easily closes in on 100 hours (without sidequests) where the fate of Agarest is at stake. Along with having to battle hordes of enemies, you’ll have to secure your reputation with the ladies to raise a new hero, as the strategy game doesn’t end with the death of your first character.
This updated version of Record of Agarest War includes all previous DLC including the add-on dungeons and extra content packs. These included tons of items, weapons, and upgrades, as well as visual enhancements such as upscaled 2D art and full HD movies.
