Vigil: The Longest Night

Here’s some details and the list of key features for Vigil: The Longest Night:

Vigil: The Longest Night blends the intricate action of 2D side-scrolling with subtle cosmic, and outright body, horror. In a world without sunlight, Leila, a member of the Vigil, returns to her hometown in search of a lost sister and becomes lost in a world of unimaginable terror as she uncovers the secrets of the town and source of evil that plagues the countryside.

Vigil: The Longest Night highlights a detailed art style inspired by paintings from the medieval period and influenced by the art of Chinese Paper Cutting. Vigil: The Longest Night takes inspiration from classics like Castlevania and modern marvels like Salt & Sanctuary and Bloodborne. Glass Heart hopes that Leila’s tale will catch player’s attention with its precise and technical combat as well as a rich and strong narrative — a unique tale of eldritch horror that combines Lovecraftian prose and Taiwanese culture.

  • Experiment with 4 types of weapons — sword, heavy weapons, twin daggers, and bow — along with many mystical variations to be discovered.
  • Use dozens of unique items to help, heal, and harm.
  • Level up a complex skill tree to help you create the ultimate warrior of light.
  • Battle variety of brutal enemies and the bizarre bosses from the depths of your nightmares.
  • Unravel the multiple endings and uncover the secrets that lurk in the darkness.
  • Become infected with the sinister mood evoked by dank caves, abandoned villages, and haunted forests.
  • Listen to the atmospheric music by the talented Jouni Valjakka of popular Finish band Whispered.

Vigil: The Longest Night (Switch – eShop) comes out next year worldwide.

Romancing SaGa 3

Earlier this week, Square-Enix announced that more details about the release of Romancing SaGa 3 will be shared at the Tokyo Game Show. And yesterday, the game suddenly popped up on the website of the Australian Classification Board:

This seems to indicate that Romancing SaGa 3 could be getting a simultaneous release worldwide, or at the very least, that the western release will not be that far behind the Japanese one.
