The highly anticipated game SOULVARS will launch for multiple platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on June 27th, 2023 according to an announcement from Shueisha Games and ginolabo. Players can get a taste of what’s to come on PC by trying the demo through Steam Next Fest from June 19 to 26.
SOULVARS is an action-packed pixel art game with gameplay mechanics inspired by classic JRPGs. It’s perfect for both long-time fans of the genre and newcomers who are looking for something innovative and fresh. In the game, players take on the role of Yakumo, a freelance Soulbearer, and work for private military contractor “DDO” (Dominator Disposal Organization). Their mission is to handle assignments and counter the grotesque Dominators that are threatening humanity.
The game features a mix of classic JRPG nostalgia with modern gameplay elements, including a deckbuilding combat system that allows players to collect gear to expand their hand with Soulbits – cards that can be personalized with various attacks to unlock over a hundred different Arts and Abilities. The party-based combat system is another essential feature that will keep players engaged. Here, each enemy is a puzzle to solve, and players can customize their parties to deal with different enemy types.
SOULVARS also has a compelling narrative that explores the dangers of technology and how it affects the world. The game is localized in 12 languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Hindi.
This game began as a passion project for solo developer ginolabo. It was initially designed as a classic JRPG, but it became a massive success when it was released as a mobile game for Android and iOS in early 2022. The game quickly rose up the rankings to #1 for paid RPG apps and #2 for paid game apps on both Google Play and iTunes in Japan. The support of Shueisha Games helped ginolabo to bring SOULVARS to PC and multiple gaming consoles. The developer has also partnered with prominent mangaka Shiro Usasaki for character illustrations in the game and promotional key visuals.
SOULVARS promises to be a great addition to the RPG genre, with optimized and enhanced gameplay for consoles and PC. Fans of the series can expect an exciting game that is not just a port from mobile devices. Watch the announcement trailer below and get ready to explore the universe of SOULVARS on June 27th, 2023.
