6 Upcoming Switch RPGs – January 2022
We have finally entered the new year of 2022 and we here at SwitchRPG hope that your holidays were nice and relaxing. And while all of us are getting back into the grind of work and/or school, the game releases are continuing on. January does tend to be light on games typically, but there may be a few titles listed below that you’ll want to keep your eyes out for.
What better way to start off the new year than with the patented KEMCO release? Originally released on the 3DS, Justice Chronicles is a turn-based RPG starring Kline, a novice High Beast Knight. He comes across an injured Battle Maiden known as Alia and gives his life in order to save her. Stuck together for the foreseeable future, the two must travel and battle against creatures of the impending darkness that is threatening the world as they know it.
Inspired by classic action JRPGs, Eternal Radiance promises a character-driven story, dynamic battles, a beautiful world, skill customization, and much more. A squire known as Celeste has started her journey to become a true knight. However, things take a dark turn as she’s drawn into a mission to pursue a thief who’s actions may have long lasting effects.
It’s not often that the tower defense genre is represented, but Duel Princess seeks to scratch several itches. From roguelike elements to deck building, bring your best units to capture the princess’ castle. Along with the gameplay, the game promises “sexy rewards” for those who have already had their interest peaked.
If your friends were facing the threat of being turned into jewels, would you work to save them? Vivid Knights slaps you right in the middle of that dilemma. Explore through an ever-changing dungeon, collect jewels to add to your team, and power up your units to activate a variety of skills.
Reverie Knights Tactics
In this isometric tactics game, you play as a party of heroes who are traveling to save their loved ones from a goblin menace raging havoc. With a variety of characters to play as and a wide world to explore, you have the power to make choices that affect how the stories pans out.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus
In what is perhaps a bold move by GameFreak, Pokemon Legends: Arceus is an action RPG where you explore around the region of Hisui, learning more about the Pokemon of this ancient region. Discover new forms of familiar Pokemon, such as Zorua and Growlithe and learn the secrets behind the legendary Arceus.
