Normally we steer clear of mobile news, but when it surrounds more hardcore, core experiences, especially if you might not have experienced that yet, well, we can't look away. In this instance, Airship Syndicate's Battle Chasers: Nightwar, which we rated highly, is headed to mobile devices.

Airship Syndicate is, of course, made up of a number of ex-Vigil devs, headed up by comic book legend Joe Maduriera who has published a number (not enough) of Battle Chasers comics in the past.
After being released on PC, Mac, and consoles, the game will now be recreated for a mobile experience and will be released on Android and iOS as a 9,99 $ / 8,99£ premium game without any in-app purchases, ads or gambling (roughly AUD$16.00)

The six heroes around fearless Gully who is on a quest to find her lost father will explore a vast world filled with dangerous enemies, hidden secrets and randomly generated dungeons. The heroes will get stronger with every defeated foe and every solved quest and gain access to powerful attacks, they can use in the turn-based encounters and boss fights. With quite demanding battles, it is up to the player to find the ideal selection of heroes that offers the best possible synergy and combat prowess.” Ancient War Golem Calibretto for example wrecks the enemies' armor with his "Gut Punch" ability and Swordman Garrison's "Rupture" strike will then cause a bleeding effect - using these synergies is key to victory.
The game blends Eastern JRPG-style design with Western art and other gameplay, making it a fantastic experience. Further, as a mobile on-the-go type of game, the mobile platform actually suits this perfectly.

"This Summer" means soon-ish for Aussies, but as usual, once a firm release date is revealed, we'll let you know. In the meantime, you can also play the game on the platforms mentioned above.

So yeah, as the headline suggests, the highly coveted Battle Chasers: Night War from Airship Syndicate (made up of ex-Vigil Studios talent) will be arriving on Nintendo Switch this May.

And in case you're not sure why this is good news, check out our in-depth review of the game on Xbox One to learn just why this should be on your radar. Also, that it's now portable is a massive plus, because it absolutely suits that platform.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG inspired by the classic console greats, featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, and a rich story driven by exploration of the world. It features classic turn-based combat with a unique overcharge mana system and incredible Battle Bursts. Players can explore beautiful, randomly-generated dungeons loaded with traps, puzzles, secrets and loot and an overworld peppered with hidden dungeons, rare bosses and randomly appearing friends and foes. Build your adventuring party by choosing three of six available heroes from the classic Battle Chasers comic series, each with unique abilities, perks, items and dungeon skills.
Due to release on Nintendo Switch May 15, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is more than a worthy addition to your Switch library, it damn well belongs there!

There's a bit of a theme running throughout the games industry at the moment, with challenge and difficulty emerging as the next vogue. It sort of started with Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, peaked with Cuphead, and now ceremoniously continues with Airship Syndicate's inaugural release, Battle Chasers: Nightwar.

Moreover, Battle Chasers: Nightwar comes from the creative braintrust of Joe Madureira and ex-Vigil developers. It's both stunning and compelling -- from a gameplay perspective -- all at once because this crew knows how to borrow, and build, from the best. Doubly, as a budget release, with more than 100 hours of gameplay in front of you, it's an investment you can't really ignore.

Here's a snippet from our in-depth review:
So what is Battle Chasers: Nightwar? The best way to describe it is that it’s an absolutely gorgeous turn-based JRPG-inspired mash-up with Diablo. And we’re not talking over-the-top Final Fantasy-style JRPGs, this borrows heavily from the best in both Namco’s Tales of series (specifically the GameCube’s much-loved Tales of Symphonia), and Fire Emblem. The isometric game-world design in dungeons and explorable areas is simply breathtaking in both art and design, while the dungeons themselves are randomly-generated whenever you freshly restart them, ala Blizzard’s long-running Diablo series.
If those comparisons aren't enough to peak your interest, well, I just don't know what else we can offer. This is pure and excellent game design at its Indie-turn-Triple-A best. Click here for our Battle Chasers: Nightwar review.
