Agarest: Generations of War for Nintendo Switch launches in Europe on March 24
Ghostlight Games has announced that Agarest: Generations of War will launch for Nintendo Switch in Europe on March 24, priced at £35.99.
Aksys Games previously released the game for Switch in North America on March 9.
Record of Agarest War, also known as Agarest: Generations of War, is a strategy RPG developed by Idea Factory that was originally released for PlayStation 3 in 2007, followed by ports for Xbox 360 and PC (Steam). Aksys Games announced a somewhat surprising late Switch port last October.
The press release can be found below.

This updated version of Agarest: Generations of War includes all DLC for the game, as well as visual enhancements such as upscaled 2D art and full HD movies. The opening movie features music never before released in the West.

Perfect collaborative attacks by positioning your forces on the battlefield and wait for the right moment to string together massive combo attacks using multiple party members, both in melee and ranged attacks.
About Record of Agarest War:
War darkened the skies of Agarest. Not a simple war between mortals, easily ended by divine intervention, but a war that split the gods themselves. Armies such as the world had never seen before, and would never see again, clashed in the skies of Agarest, across its surface, and even in the caverns that wound their way through its interior.
As is the way in war, many died on both sides, gods and mortals alike, and the war left Agarest broken, blackened, and dead. The gods wept for their paradise, and in a final act of creation, sacrificed themselves to bring life back to its charred and twisted surface. Though the gods are long dead, the withering darkness that caused their war is not. Imprisoned for millennia, its bonds have begun to weaken, and a shadow once again spreads across the surface of the world.
Born into this world perched unknowingly on the brink of the apocalypse, a young man by the name of Leonhardt and his descendants are the last, best hope for Agarest. Their journey will span generations and continents as they strive to once again bring peace to their beleaguered world, even as the cost of their own souls.
Key features of the game include:
Soul Breeding – Tired of just living through one lifetime in typical RPG titles? Then witness the Soul Breed system! Choose a bride at the end of your adventure and give birth to the hero of the next generation!
Collaborative Attacks – Position your forces on the battlefield and wait for the right moment to string together massive combo attacks using multiple party members, both in melee and at range!
Affection Rating – Curious how one of Agarest’s lovely ladies feels about you? Look no further than the Affection Gauge, which gives you a quick and easy visual representation of her opinions! Is she smiling? You must be doing something right! Frowning? Uh oh… If only real relationships were this easy!
