Kakehashi Games and developer ooze have announced that their open-sea sailing RPG Sagres is set to launch on Nintendo Switch at an unknown date. The console edition is expected to be a full port of its PC version, originally released in Early Access on Steam in April 2023 followed by an English launch in September of that year. If you’re curious how it depicts voyaging across cerulean oceans, check out its launch trailer below!

Sagres Launch Trailer

Sagres anchors its world in the perspective of young ship captain Fernando as he finds his sea-legs in the 1400s. The world’s seven seas are filled with trade, pirating, and unknown lands. Players can customize their ship to their liking, recruit crew members, and visit hundreds of real-world locations. Throughout those journeys, Fernando will contend against foes in turn-based battle using rock-paper-scissors as its foundation. Check out a deeper synopsis below, via its official Steam page:

Sail around the entire world, from the snow capped mountains of North America to the Saharan plains of Africa, via everywhere in-between! Discover hundreds of real locations, set up vital trade routes, and search local markets for new goods to trade.

Arm yourself to the teeth with a plethora of swords, guns, cannons and armour as you fight against pirates, thieves, wild animals and mythical creatures. Can you become the master and commander of a unique “rock-paper-scissors” turn-based combat system?

Load your vessel up to the deck with cannons and it will be formidable in combat, but you’ll need to make sure you have the necessary cargo space for resources to support your crew. Keeping everything ship-shape can often be the difference between a successful voyage or being lost at sea!

Become the world’s greatest explorer! Take on contracts from various guilds to make discoveries, find treasures no one else can and rise through the ranks. Accrue enough fame and maybe you’ll even brush up against royalty on your way to the top!
