That didn’t take long!

Last week, we talked briefly about the action RPG Reynatis, announced in the Japanese Nintendo Direct.

With Kazushige Nojima as the scenario writer and Yoko Shimomura as the composer, it already had my attention even before I watched the trailer, which just interested me more.

At the time, it was only announced for Japan, so I had my fingers crossed for localization… and today, NIS America announced that Reynatis will be coming west for Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC this fall!

A limited edition will also be available.

(Why it wasn’t just revealed last week, I don’t know, but it wouldn’t be the first time a game was announced only in the Japanese Nintendo Direct but then confirmed for localization shortly afterwards.)

Reynatis is a fantasy action RPG set in Shibuya, starring two main characters: Marin Kirizumi, described on the official website as “a wizard who seeks freedom through unstoppable power,” and Sari Nishijima, “an officer who seeks an orderly world where magic is regulated.”

The pauses during combat look a little strange to me, but overall it seems very interesting. I’m excited that this one is being localized, and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on it!

Color me intrigued…
