Stranger of Sword City is the latest dungeon-crawler from Experience Inc., a developer well-known for just this genre. It’s become notable even before its Western release for its art style, as well as its strict adherence to being a game for die-hard veterans of the genre. Let’s check it out!
We’re checking out the game on the Vita, where it generally feels at home. This version will release next month courtesy of NIS America (and we’ll have a full review then), though Experience is publishing the game itself on Xbox One for… Xbox One-owning JRPG fans? Is that a market? We shall see!
In the video, we run through how the game works, exploring an early area and exploring the options in your base to prep for the next run. Join us!
