Rainbow Skies is Finally Releasing in June Four years later than planned, but it looks like it's been four years of development well spent. 05.27.18 - 3:38 PM
Hey, remember in summer of 2013 when I said that Rainbow Skies was scheduled to release in 2014?
Actually, I didn't either. It's been so long, I thought I missed the game, and this was the third in the series, because the logo was immediately recognizable as a followup to 2012's Rainbow Moon. But no, it turns out Skies has indeed been in development for over 5 years, and it's finally coming next month. Alongside news of the release date, Marcus Pukropski, CEO of SideQuest Studios had this to say:
"After five years in development, we are pleased to announce that Rainbow Skies, the successor to Rainbow Moon, will launch on the PlayStation Store this June. Featuring a humorous new story with interwoven narratives, monster taming, a revamped battle system allowing greater tactical depth, treasure hunts, new mini-games and an improved sidequest system, Rainbow Skies offers even the most seasoned of RPG players countless hours of fun."
When Rainbow Skies releases next month – it's coming to North America on June 26th, and to Europe and Asia on June 27th – it will arrive on the PlayStation Store for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita for $29.99, €26.99, £22.49 (this last price is subject to change). Even better? Rainbow Skies supports Cross-Save, but to answer your immediate question: No, not Cross-Buy.
Furthermore, by partnering with Play-Asia, there will be physical standard and limited editions for the PS4 and Vita. The limited editions come with a bevy of bonuses: A printed map of the game world, a Book of Knowledge featuring character profiles and more, the game's soundtrack, and a numbered certificate. It's surprisingly spiffy for a release from a smaller developer:
Pretty nice! Now, I will leave you with two things: A link to our Rainbow Moon review, which Zidane and Shulk enthusiast Stephen Meyerink described as "Rainbow Moon is a game that I couldn't help but come away from with pleasant feelings." Second, this trailer for Rainbow Skies:
