Stranger of Sword City for Xbox One

Stranger of Sword City for Xbox One will launch digitally in North America on March 22, and physically and digitally in Japan on March 24 for 3,800 yen, publisher Experience announced.

The dungeon RPG will be Experience’s first self-published title in North America. NIS America is localizing and publishing the PS Vita version for release on March 22 in North America and March 25 in Europe.

Both the PS Vita and Xbox One versions will offer the option to switch between new character illustrations drawn by En Okishiji (oxijiyen) and the original character illustrations by Yoko Tsukamoto at any time. The new artwork was confirmed for PS Vita during a recent NIS America Twitch broadcast.

For comparison’s sake, here’s a screenshot of Stranger of Sword City‘s Xbox 360 version, which launched in Japan in 2014, showing the same characters pictured in the top screenshot illustrated by En Okishiji, this time illustrated by Yoko Tsukamoto:
