Happinet has announced that a free demo for Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia will release on Nintendo Switch eShop tomorrow, on April 30. It is currently available in Australia/New Zealand and should unlock in other regions over the next day.
The demo will offer two separate modes to play: a Training Mode which acts as a tutorial to the game's combat and structure, and a Trial Mode where players take control of the Norzaleo Kingdom. There is no data save transfer to the final version.
A limited physical version of Brigandine will be exclusive to Limited Run Games in the west. Preorders will open beginning on May 1 and run through June 7. In addition to a standard version, a Collector's Edition will also be available for $74.99, which includes a reversible 18” x 24” poster, original soundtrack CD, Gustava emblem pin, housed in a custom box.

The Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia Nintendo Switch demo features two key modes to select from for new players looking for a new fantasy strategy RPG and returning fans of the classic Brigandine series. The training mode offers players a tutorial on troop movement, invading bases and combat, while the Trial mode allows the player to take on the role of the Brigandine of Justice, ruler of the Norzaleo Kingdom in Easy mode. The demo ends when the player’s army reaches up to 10 seasons or when 7 bases have been occupied by the army*. However, the demo can be replayed for players to try different strategies and scenarios each time. Any game progress or save data players made in the demo will not transfer over to the game when it launches on June 25.
*Note to players: The Trial Version (Trial Mode) description after selecting "New Game" is incorrectly written as "experience a trial version of the game that lasts for three seasons". The correct description is "The game will end after 10 seasons or when you occupy 7 bases".
The veteran producers and developers shared additional details in the Producer Letter which was released today. The Producer Letter series which will be released until launch can be found here.
