Riviera: The Promised Land remaster launches for Steam on July 17

Sting has announced that Riviera: The Promised Land will launch for Steam on July 17. The RPG was previously released for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices in Japan.

Riviera is the second entry in the Dept. Heaven series of tactical RPGs to receive a modern remaster in English, following Yggdra Union: We'll Never Fight Alone in 2023 for Steam and Switch. While Yggdra Union is available on Nintendo Switch eShop in English, there has been no word yet of an English Switch version for Riviera: The Promised Land.

A release date trailer, Steam page description, and screenshots can be found below, via Sting.
