Looking for a tasty new JRPG console fix? Crunching Koalas has announced that it will develop and release the console version of Pixelated Milk’s Regalia for PlayStation 4 on April 10, Nintendo Switch on April 12, and Xbox One on April 13. Entitled Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs – Royal Edition, the console version will include some DLC and other updates to the title.
Regalia draws inspiration from jRPG classics, but also delivers a modern mix of good old adventuring and dynamic storytelling. It’s a tactical RPG, but it’s actually a game about the restoration of your kingdom, bonding with vibrant characters met during your journey, embarking on the most peculiar quests possible, and bringing back your best jRPG moments in an up-to-date, accessible style.
It can also be a game about unforgettable, rewarding combats and well-thought tactics, but that’s for the player to decide – there’s always a possibility to tone down the difficulty level or even skip a battle if someone can’t wait to see what other plot-twists lay before him.
Omitting the battles won’t make all the problems go away, though – there’s always something to be done in Ascalia, like dealing with teammates’ quirks. Take Theo for example, a vampire with a blood aversion, whose biggest dream is to become a hairdresser or Esther’s ambition to make a DIY atomic bomb with just a few gears and spare parts. Oh, and there’s always a fishing mini-game!
