The dark fantasy dungeon crawler, Baroque, is making its way to Nintendo Switch in Japan! Titled Baroque: Original Version, this version is a port of the original 1998 Sega Saturn title with a few bells and whistles added to improve the experience.

Improvements to Baroque: Original Version include quality of life options not found in the original. These include adjusting the screen size along with adjusting the background, transparency mesh and scan lines. A manual save option has also been added alongside the auto-save feature.

Furthermore, the game includes the Baroque Report, a pre-order bonus CD that was included with the original Sega Saturn release that contains art, movies, and other assets. You can also read the print version of the report in-game. Also included are the opening videos to Baroque ~Yuganda Mousou~ Black in Truth and Baroque for Wii.
