Anima

Yesterday, Anima Project announced that the Anima series was headed to the Nintendo Switch, following the release of The Nameless Chronicles on other platforms. We don’t have a release date for the games just yet, and all we know is that they will be available sometime after Anima: The Nameless Chronicles has been released (so not before July 19th).

The two games, Anima and The Nameless Chronicles will be available separately, or as part of a pack. They will both run at a stable 60 frames per second, in both portable and docked modes.

Here’s details about The Nameless Chronicles:

Like Anima: Gate of Memories, The Nameless Chronicles is an Action RPG, hack & slash, full of magical attacks and final bosses, reminiscent of great genre references like Devil May Cry or Nier: Automata, and elements inherited from the traditional RPG genre. Action, exploration and evolution of the character through experience points are some of the mechanics included in its gameplay mechanics.

Nameless Chronicles takes us back to the events that gave birth to the first Anima, but from the perspective of the enemy side. We will put ourselves in the shoes of “Nameless”, an immortal who has assumed different identities throughout history, and his quest to find death after thousands of years in the world. In Nameless Chronicles we will learn details of the life of “Nameless”, what moves him, and we will embody many of his past lives.

This new Anima is a totally new and different adventure; in fact, the vast majority of the scenarios and situations differ completely from those of the first Anima Project title, although there will be elements and characters that only those who have played the first instalment of the saga will recognize.

With a soundtrack created by Sonotrigger Studios and graphics that, like on the first Anima, mixes cel-shading graphics with realistic 3D environments, The Nameless Chronicles has everything to become Action RPG of the Year.
