Ghostlight to Release Agarest: Generations of War on Nintendo Switch

Ghostlight has announced that Agarest: Generations of War will launch on Nintendo Switch in Europe and Australia on March 24, priced at £35.99.

This release features an updated version of the game including all DLC, and visual enhancements such as upscaled 2D art and full HD movies. The opening movie features music never before released in the West.

Agarest: Generations of War, also known as Record of Agarest War outside of Europe, is a strategy role-playing game developed by Idea Factory and originally released back in 2007 for PlayStation 3. The game has since been ported to Xbox 360 and PC as well as iOS and Android. Aksys Games published the game on Nintendo Switch in North America earlier this month.

The original release of Agarest: Generations of War was followed up with a prequel titled Agarest: Generations of War Zero, a sequel titled Agarest: Generations of War 2 and a spin-off Record of Agarest War: Mariage.

About Record of Agarest War
War darkened the skies of Agarest. Not a simple war between mortals, easily ended by divine
intervention, but a war that split the gods themselves. Armies such as the world had never seen before, and would never see again, clashed in the skies of Agarest, across its surface, and even in the caverns that wound their way through its interior.

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.

Born into this world perched unknowingly on the brink of the apocalypse, a young man by the name of Leonhardt and his descendants are the last, best hope for Agarest. Their journey will span generations and continents as they strive to once again bring peace to their beleaguered world, even as the cost of their own souls.

Key features of the game include:

  • Soul Breeding – Tired of just living through one lifetime in typical RPG titles? Then witness the Soul Breed system! Choose a bride at the end of your adventure and give birth to the hero of the next generation!
  • Collaborative Attacks – Position your forces on the battlefield and wait for the right moment to string together massive combo attacks using multiple party members, both in melee and at range!
  • Affection Rating – Curious how one of Agarest’s lovely ladies feels about you? Look no further than the Affection Gauge, which gives you a quick and easy visual representation of her opinions! Is she smiling? You must be doing something right! Frowning? Uh oh… If only real relationships were this easy!
