13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim - Announcement Trailer | Nintendo Switch
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a 2019 computer game established by Vanilla ware and released by Atlas. It was launched for the PlayStation 4 in Japan in November 2019 as well as worldwide in September 2020, with a Nintendo Switch over variation scheduled for launch in April 2022. The game is split in between side-scrolling experience sectors and also real-time method (RTS) fights, and also follows thirteen high-school trainees in a fictionalized 1980s Japan who are dragged right into an advanced war between meccas and also hostile Kiev in a nonlinear story.

Supervisor and also author George Pakistani conceived the game in 2013 adhering to the completion of Dragon’s Crown, initially pitching it for a toy line. 13 Sentinels began production two years later on, discarding the toy line component under Atlas. The manufacturing proved challenging for Vanilla ware, as the workshop handled workload and also development challenges. As opposed to previous works, Pakistani both worked with the manuscript alone and handed character design tasks to Yumiko Hiram and Erika Kids. Hiroshi Nakamoto and his studio Basis cape, that handled the music for Vanilla ware’s past games, reviewed their functions.
Initially set up for a 2018 release on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, the game was delayed to 2019 with the Vita version being canceled. The English localization by Atlas West verified testing because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It saw a slow-moving start in sales upon its release in Japan before ultimately going beyond Atlas’s expectations, going on to market over 500,000 duplicates globally by November 2021. Important reception has actually been usually positive, with appreciation going to its narrative and also art layout, though several customers faulted the RTS sectors as the weakest part of the game.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has a very good reputation, which is why Switch owners are allowed to relax correctly.

With 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim succeeded by the Japanese developer Vanilla ware a great surprise hit. The mix of Visual Novel and real-time strategy game was very good at critics. Metacritic records an average rating of 85. And even players celebrate the genre mixing, as the user rating of 9.1 shows (even if it is calculated from not even 300 ratings). Certainly 13 sentinels is a niche game, but in this niche it is a great success, as the sales figures prove. Publisher Atlas announced yesterday in a live stream to have sold more than 500,000 units worldwide. And next year will guarantee even more if you released the switch version.

The Sony handheld has now been anything but a success.
