If you’re the owner of a Switch and happen to like retro-style JRPGs, then we have some very good news for you. Circle Entertainment and Something Classic Games have announced that they are bringing the JRPG Shadows of Adam to Switch.
The announcement was made on Twitter, where they shared a brief clip of the game being played on the console. It seems like it will fit right at home on Switch, with the game itself appearing very similar to retro Final Fantasy games.
For those unfamiliar with the game, the following is an overview from the Steam page:
“Tucked away from the outside world by the impenetrable haze of the Misty Woods, the village of Adam has mostly lived in peace since the days of the Wraith War. Magic, the dark power that fueled that war has vanished. But darkness is descending once more and Adam’s legendary hero, Orazio, is no more.
10 years ago he left without explanation and never returned, leaving his son and adopted daughter to wrestle with the dark secret he left behind—a secret that must now be revealed if the children hope to save both Adam and their departed father, though its revelation could unhinge the world.”
- Compelling Character Driven Story: Shadows of Adam’s story is one with a deep narrative and an interesting plot. The story revolves around four main characters: Asrael, Kellan, Curtis, and Talon.
- A Strategic AP Management Battle System: AP is restored between each round of battle automatically and through defeating enemies. This allows a unique attrition system that encourages skill use and fast combat.
- Beautiful Visuals: Shadows of Adam features beautifully modernized visuals inspired by classic JRPGs of the SNES-era.
- Original Soundtrack With Over 44 Tracks: An original soundtrack by Tyler Mire that’s inspired by music from the genre’s greatest games. This soundtrack includes unique themes for each area and character and has an emphasis on strong melodies and an emotional connection.
Shadows of Adam originally released for PC in February of last year, receiving generally solid reviews in the process. A release date for the Switch version hasn’t been revealed yet, but we’ll keep you posted. You can check out a trailer for the PC version of the game below.
