Shockwork Games, the developer behind last year’s Switch release Alder’s Blood, has announced that a new, «dark» JRPG called Nadir is now in the works for Switch.
The game will have players controlling a team of three «powerful, yet extremely blemished characters» as they try to escape a seemingly endless city. The city contains different themes, enemies and challenges, and you’ll need to adapt to these differences by building a variety of character builds to maximise your team’s efforts.
Here’s an official description:
Nadir is a dark jRPG with procedurally generated maps burning of infernal fire and many extraordinary inspirations with the deepest influence coming straight from Dante’s Divine Comedy. The game features fast-paced combat with lots of abilities and special effects, terrifying enemies, strong and vivid, Sin-City inspired art style, and modding support for those who want to expand the world.
Nadir is already progressing nicely according to the team, but a Kickstarter campaign will be launched soon to generate additional funding, all in a bid to «polish and expand» the game further. If you’re interested in keeping an eye out for that, make sure to sign up for notifications here.
