Fantasian Heads to Switch, No Longer Apple Arcade Exclusive

Three years after its Apple Arcade debut, Fantasian will appear on the Nintendo Switch as Fantasian: Neo Dimension. The June 2024 Nintendo Direct revealed the exclusivity arrangement expired, and people can expect it in the Holiday 2024 season.

Fantasian was one of the early Apple Arcade exclusives, with the first part appearing in April 2021. The second part launched in August 2021, with elements like new game plus also eventually added. In February 2023, creator Hironobu Sakaguchi noted interest in both a PC port and sequel. SteamDB also showed a listing for a PC version of the game back in August 2023. However, it’s only now that a Switch release is confirmed.

Here’s the trailer:

In Fantasian, players follow an amnesiac young man named Leo who is currently stuck in the Human Realm. He’s attempting to find out who he is and what happened prior to a Machine Realm. In so doing, he gets caught up in the investigation of Mechteria draining the Human Realm of energy and the fate of the world. It is unique in that Mistwalker created actual dioramas in the real world for the game’s environments.

Fantasian is available on Apple Arcade, and it will also come to the Nintendo Switch in the 2024 holiday season.
