Ghostlight Games to Publish Agarest: Generations of War onto Nintendo Switch this Month 

In a rather unexpected announcement, Ghostlight Games have revealed that they are the European (and Australian) publisher for Idea Factory International’s turn-based RPG  Agarest: Generations of War, and that it will be released digitally on 24th March 2023 for £35.99 / €39.99.

Why is this news so surprising? Well Aksys Games had previously announced a western release of Agarest: Generations of War (under the name Record of Agarest War) for the Nintendo Switch, and it was expected that they would handle both North American and European releases of the game, but alas that doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead Ghostlight Games, who have published Idea Factory titles in the past, will be handling European (and Australian) distribution duties for this title.

Regardless; this Nintendo Switch version of Agarest: Generations of War includes all previously released downloadable content for the game, as well as visual enhancements such as upscaled 2D artwork and full high definition movies. The opening movie also features music never before released in the West. 

About Agarest: Generations of 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.

Agarest: Generations of War will be available digitally on 24th March 2023 for the Nintendo Switch, via the Nintendo eShop, and will be priced at £35.99 / €39.99. In the meantime Agarest: Generations of War is also available for Windows PC (via Steam). Further details can also be found via Ghostlight Games website.
