Merge Games and Lince Works revealed today a very saddening news- Aragami: Shadow Edition for the Nintendo Switch will miss its original Fall 2018 release date and will be moved to 2019.
“The work done by our porting partners, Stage Clear, so far has been truly fantastic,” Lince Works studio director David Leon said in a press release. “But we all agree that with more time for testing and polishing we could ensure a much more solid experience. We’re in no rush so it’s best we just move our release by a couple of months. Plus, most of you are all still busy playing that new cowboy game anyway. :P”
In the Switch version of Aragami: Shadow Edition, it will include the original base game, the Aragami: Nightfall Expansion , and all of the available DLCs that already released. In addition, it will support a two-player online co-op that is cross-playable with the Xbox One and PC.
Here’s an overview of the game via a listing on Amazon:
