Brigandine is back and heading exclusively to the Nintendo Switch! Developed by Matrix Software and published by Happinet, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia releases worldwide on June 25th, 2020.

Discover what awaits in the latest story and gameplay trailer:

After a 20 year hiatus, the series returns with all-star talent: Kenji Terada (Final Fantasy I-III, Batman: Dark Tomorrow) as scenario writer, Raita Kazama (Puzzle & Dragons, Xenoblade Chronicles) as art director and character designer, and original Brigandine composer Tenpei Sato (Disgaea 1-5). A physical copy of the game will be released in North America by the wonderful Limited Run Games.

The plot of Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia focuses on a war between six countries of the titular continent of Runersia. As a player, you choose which country to fight for and create your own army of Rune Knights! With more than 40 base locations, over 100 unique Knights, and 50 monster types, your quest to unite the land under one nation will be far from easy.

Happinet describes Brigandine:

The Legend of Runersia in their own words here:In Runersia, a continent created by the Rune God, mana rains down endlessly. Eons ago, five Mana Stones were brought forth by this continent and passes through history alongside human nations, eventually embedding into special Brigandine equipment to create Rune Knights – special individuals who can wield the mana power and stones embedded into their armor to cast skills and magic as well as summon and control ancient monsters. Six Brigandine Countries of Runersia, each with conflicting ideals beliefs, histories, and faiths, are divided by Brigandines of Justice, Glory, Freedom, Sanctity, and Ego, while the sixth country exists without Brigandine. The goal is to win battles to expand their country’s influence until the entire continent of Runersia has been taken over by the player. Featuring a Fantasy world conquest within the turn-based strategy genre, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia will offer hundreds of hours of immersive gameplay in this stunning new campaign for conquest. Players choose one of six countries to assume the role of the ruler aiming to conquer Runersia, and command more than 100 Rune Knights throughout the six nations leading various monster troops of various dragons, ghouls, and fairies, into fierce battles on hexagonal grid maps in the tactical turn-based battle system.

Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia releases globally for the Nintendo Switch on June 25th. Pricing and availability of the physical version will be announced later by Limited Run Games. Check back at RPGFan as we learn more!
