Monster-raising RPG Coromon launches for Nintendo Switch on July 21

Publisher Freedom Games and developer TRAGsoft have announced that monster-raising RPG Coromon will launch for Nintendo Switch on July 21.

Coromon released for Steam earlier this year. While the Nintendo Switch version was originally set to launch alongside the PC version, it was delayed near launch to "ensure the best possible experience for features like skill-based, cross-platform online matchmaking". Cross-save capability will also be supported between the PC and Switch versions.

In our review for Coromon, Paige described the game as "a game filled with potential, but past sinking sands and perplexing puzzles it starts to fall flat."

The new trailer and description can be found below, via Freedom Games.

Coromon, the modern monster taming RPG from developer TRAGsoft and publisher Freedom Games, chooses Nintendo Switch to join its squad after collecting more than 100,000 unit sales on PC. Cross-save features between PC and console will also become available at launch, on July 21, 2022.

Plant an eager foot into the Velua region and encounter powerful creatures called Coromon. Assume the role of an apprentice Coromon researcher to study and catch these adorable, yet formidable animals as a member of the illustrious Lux Solis organization. Join the Titan Taskforce to foil an evil rival institution’s corrupt plans to harness the fabled Coromon Titans’ powers and rain chaos upon the world.

Explore six beautiful pixel-art biomes including icy terrains, marshy swamps, and dark dungeons, all containing their own distinct Coromon. Encounter more than 120 different species and bring together an A-team of ferocious fighters to battle enemies. Strategize for each encounter with the use of seven element types and custom stats distribution for each Coromon to develop a top-tier roster. 

Cruise through the adventure with a variety of difficulty options ranging from a more casual gameplay experience or test the squad’s limits with the built-in fan-favorite “Nuzlocke” and randomizer options. Craft a personalized trainer and take the Lux Solis personality test to choose the best beginner battling buddy. 

“Coromon is our love letter to a treasured game genre and we cherish this opportunity to finally bring it to Nintendo Switch,” said Jochem Pouwels, Founder, TRAGsoft. “After the overwhelmingly positive response to Coromon’s PC launch, and with how patient everyone has been, we want to thank our community for being so supportive and encouraging. We expect everyone’s creature catching journeys on the go will meet all expectations they have had for us!” 

Coromon comes to Nintendo Switch for $19.99 with English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified) language support.
