Dragon Star Varnir to Launch on Nintendo Switch in Summer 2021

Following on from Nintendo Switch ports of Death End Re;Quest, as well as Megadimension Neptunia VII, publisher Idea Factory International have recently announced plans to release the 2018 turn-based RPG Dragon Star Varnir onto the Nintendo Switch.

As with the aforementioned titles Dragon Star Varnir will be released digitally onto the Nintendo eShop and come complete with all previously released downloadable content as part of the base game.

In a world where the bones of an ancient beast tower over the land… The Knight Zephy is part of an order whose role is to hunt down witches – people seen as cursed beings for giving birth to dragons.

He is brutally mauled by a dragon on one mission, but as he gasps his last breath, two witches save him by feeding him dragon blood – a death-defying magical substance that also grants him new witch powers.

Their fates now intertwined, Zephy reluctantly joins the witches against a slew of enemies: an Empire out to destroy his kind, ruthless dragon hunters, and a witch more powerful than any in existence.

Can they fight all this and save themselves, or will his new allies succumb to the dragon’s curse…?

Unlike previous Idea Factory International titles Dragon Star Varnir saw the introduction of ‘layered’ battles in which players could freely move between low, mid and high, layers with enemies appearing on each. Boss battles would also see more damage being dealt if attacked if attacked from the right angle. In addition as part of the story players would nature witches in an attempt to avoid them from turning into dragons themselves.

Dragon Star Varnir is currently available for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via Steam), and will becoming digitally to Nintendo Switch in Summer 2021.
