Last week, at the Digige 2017 expo in Japan, a brand new game for the Nintendo Switch was playable for the very first time (in fact, it was the first public showing, period): Croixleur Sigma. For those who never heard of this game before, it’s a frenetic hack ‘n slash arcade action game, originally developed by souvenir circ..
Croixleur Sigma was previously released on PC and PlayStation 4 / Vita, and it’s now headed to the Nintendo Switch. We don’t have any details about that version of the game, though… we just know that it’s development.
Here’s what the game is all about:
Tonight, in the Queen’s realm of Ilance, two prodigies representing the Knight and Aristocrat factions will do battle in ‘the Adjuvant Trial’. This ritual, which has been held since the founding of the nation, decides which faction will hold military and political authority, and protect the Queen, the living symbol of the realm. The fate of the nation is at stake as these two girls set aside their childhood friendship and undergo a trial in which there can be only one victor.
And here’s the main features (based on PC version, as we don’t know if there’s going to be any extra content or features yet):
- Play as either Lucrezia Visconti or Francesca Storaro and battle your way up the tower through hordes of oncoming monsters to learn the secrets behind the Adjuvant Trial!
- 20 Weapons to collect, each with a unique special move! Pick the load-out that suits your fighting style!
- Simple but satisfying combo system, including Move Canceling, Attack Nullifying, Invincible Dashing, and Rigid Body States!
- Take on the Adjuvant Trial in Story Mode with separate stories and multiple endings for both characters!
- Test your mettle and hone your skills in Time Attack Mode, Survival Mode, and Challenge Mode!
- Local 2 player co-op: take on the monster hordes with a friend in in Dramatic Battle mode!
- Full Japanese voice over
Finally, here’s some screenshots and a trailer for the game (again, from the PC version):
Croixleur Sigma (Switch – eShop) doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s already been added to the Upcoming Games page!
