Arc of Alchemist

Arc of Alchemist is coming to Switch on October 10 in Japan for 7,200 yen at retail and 6,400 yen via download, developer Compile Heart announced.

The action RPG first launched for PlayStation 4 in February in Japan. The PlayStation 4 version is due out this winter in the west.

The Switch version will include the following new features:

  • Control All Party Members – Control all party members, not just Quinn. Freely form your party and enjoy battle and field traversal while operating your favorite character. Whether it is Sharon, who can attack a group of enemies in one swoop from a distance, or Sandra, who specializes in defense, each character has their own unexpected quirks.
  • Easier to Play – By adding high-value items that can be converted into money, it is now easier to fully realize your base, making character development easier as well. Some user interface elements have also been adjusted.
