Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone Hits Steam Early Access February 6th

Artwork of Yggdra Union: We'll Never Fight Alone, one of several RPGs coming this week

Publisher and developer Sting has revealed that the classic Game Boy Advance and PlayStation Portable strategy RPG Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone will be arriving worldwide on PC via Steam Early Access! The game will feature English, Japanese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese language support.

Yggdra Union‘s main campaign and side content will be 100% playable all the way through. Bugs will be addressed and improvements will be made as users give feedback during the EA period. The game will also include new features made for this PC version of the game! Sting expects the process to last three to five months.

This is great news for English speakers worldwide as while Yggdra Union did get a Switch port, it never ended up coming out west. With the Steam version in the mix, the game will become much more accessible for everyone given that the last English release was 15 years ago on the PSP.

Check out the overview of the game below via the Yggdra Union Steam page:
