The Switch version of free-to-play fantasy RPG Caravan Stories will launch on March 18 in Japan, developer Aiming announced.
Caravan Stories for Switch uses a cloud game system, allowing users to play “with beautiful graphics” without downloading a large amount of data as long as they have a Switch and stable network environment.
Caravan Stories is currently available for PlayStation 4, PC, iOS, and Android in Japan, and PlayStation 4 in North America. Unlike the PlayStation 4 version official website, the Switch version website does not have multiple language options, suggesting it will only support Japanese. The PlayStation 4 version also supports English and Chinese.
Here is an overview of the game, via PlayStation.com:
Enter the vast open world of Iyarr, where adventure waits around every corner. Choose from one of six playable races, each with their own storyline. Build a fellowship by taming monsters and befriending non-player characters. Nearly 300 allies can be recruited for player-versus-enemy and player-versus-player.
Recruitment in Caravan Stories fosters extraordinarily strategic combat and character development, with skillsets and stats that change the way characters fight. Stand against the tides of evil in parties of up to 6 creatures and allies. Plumb the depths of formidable dungeons and team up with players to conquer gripping open-world raids.
Iyarr is as unpredictable as it is beautiful. As the sun falls and shadows turn to moonlit darkness, new monsters appear to threaten the party. When day breaks, other creatures join the fray, demanding new approaches and strategies. The time flow system authors a dynamic world where surprising stories can unfurl at any moment.
Caravan, the strange flying vehicle, serves as a progression hub. Players can customize their caravan’s look, unlock weapon and armor crafting, create resource generators like gold and crystal pumps, and provide backup in battle with cannons and other armaments.
