Knights in the Nightmare remaster to release for Nintendo Switch in Japan on April 7

Sting Entertainment has announced that a remaster for Knights in the Nightmare will launch in Japan for Nintendo Switch on April 7, priced at ¥2,860. The remaster was originally announced to release in 2021 for Switch and mobile devices, but news about the re-release had gone silent up to now.

No information regarding the previously-announced mobile version has been revealed at this time.


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 West'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.
