Sting Entertainment's Knights in the Nightmare being remastered for Nintendo Switch and Mobile Devices in Japan

Sting Entertainment has announced that a remaster for Knights in the Nightmare will launch in Japan for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices in 2021.

The strategy-shooter role-playing game originally released for Nintendo DS in September 2008, and re-released for PSP in April 2010. Atlus USA localized both versions of the games after their respective Japanese launches.


Sting has previously released remasters for Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone and Gloria Union: Twin Fates in Blue Ocean for the same platforms in recent years, although neither of these re-releases received official English versions, despite Yggdra Union being localized in the past. These titles, along with Riviera and Gungnir, are all a part of Dept. Heaven series by Sting.

It's worth noting that both the PSP versions for Yggdra Union and Knights in the Nightmare used to be available on NA PSN, but have since been delisted, implying that Atlus USA's license on the titles has expired in the years since their original launches. Unfortunately, it seems getting these new versions in the West will be unlikely unless a different niche publisher decides to pick the titles up.

Thanks to Gematsu for the heads up!
