Magic Scroll Tactics for Switch launches October 25 in Japan

Side-scrolling tactical RPG dated for console.

Magic Scroll Tactics

The Switch version of Magic Scroll Tactics will launch via the Nintendo eShop on October 25 for 1,200 yen. It will support English, Japanese, and Chinese language options.

The side-scrolling tactical RPG first launched for PC in April.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

Side-Scrolling Tactical Action

Magic Scroll Tactics is a side-scrolling, turn-based tactical RPG where elevation is the key to victory. Gain the high ground and rain devastating blows down upon your hapless foes, or watch with consternation as your summons have trouble hitting the well-protected enemies menacing them from above…

But never fear! Even if you’re in a bind, you have a wide variety of options at your disposal to turn the tides of battle. Use quick and agile warriors to seize the high ground, flying units to dominate the battlefield from the air, or magic that can roast, freeze, or zap foes, whatever their position!

Detailed Ability Trees

Use the points characters gain each time they level up to learn and improve different abilities. Every class has its own abilities to master, and characters can switch jobs to open up a whole new set of abilities.

Wizards and Pirates and Summoners, Oh My!

Nash is a feisty summoner with a job to do: namely, stopping a group of evil magi from resurrecting an ancient witch and destroying the world!

Along the way, she’ll befriend a young priestess from an ancient and noble lineage, duel an extremely persistent pirate obsessed with loot, and fight hordes of deadly monsters!
