Caravan Stories, the free-to-play online RPG that’s been operating on PC, mobile, and PS4 for the last few years, is set to make its debut on Nintendo Switch. The decision was announced by developer Aiming on the game’s third anniversary livestream, which aired on November 29, 2020 via YouTube. Beyond that, though, no other details such as a planned release window were given.
Caravan Stories launched on Android and iOS in Japan in 2017 and received a PC port in 2018. Though the game supported English-language play for players who opted to go through the Japanese app stores, it didn’t have an official English edition until it launched for PS4 in September 2019. Check out the release trailer for the PS4 edition.
Caravan Stories takes place in the fantasy world of Iyarr, home to six races and unending adventure. Players can choose any of the six playable character races and reincarnate their characters as another race, exploring that race’s stories in turn. Players can tame monsters on the field to supplement their party, recruit new characters, and upgrade their titular Caravan. The Caravan is a mobile base and quest hub of sorts that travels with the player and can be upgraded extensively.
The game also has extensive auto-play options owing to its mobile roots, as well as cooperative PvE and competitive PvP elements. It’s unknown if the Switch edition will be able to carry over progress from accounts on the PS4 edition of the game, but as of the PS4 English launch at least, players were not allowed to import progress from the PC and mobile versions.
Caravan Stories is immediately available on PS4 globally, and on PS4, PC, iOS, and Android in Japan. The Switch version has not had a launch region or window announced as of yet.
