Mediascape announced that the indie side-scrolling strategy RPG Magic Scroll Tactics developed by Otori Denshi will release on October 25. Its Japanese product page also shows English, and Chinese language support.
Here’s a trailer that shows how it plays:
Side-Scrolling Tactical Action
Magic Scroll Tactics is a side-scrolling, turn-based tactical RPG where elevation is the key to victory. Gain the high ground and rain devastating blows down upon your hapless foes, or watch with consternation as your summons have trouble hitting the well-protected enemies menacing them from above…
But never fear! Even if you’re in a bind, you have a wide variety of options at your disposal to turn the tides of battle. Use quick and agile warriors to seize the high ground, flying units to dominate the battlefield from the air, or magic that can roast, freeze, or zap foes, whatever their position!
Detailed Ability Trees
Use the points characters gain each time they level up to learn and improve different abilities. Every class has its own abilities to master, and characters can switch jobs to open up a whole new set of abilities.
Wizards and Pirates and Summoners, Oh My!
Nash is a feisty summoner with a job to do: namely, stopping a group of evil magi from resurrecting an ancient witch and destroying the world!
Along the way, she’ll befriend a young priestess from an ancient and noble lineage, duel an extremely persistent pirate obsessed with loot, and fight hordes of deadly monsters!
Magic Scroll Tactics releases on October 25, 2018 for Nintendo Switch. The game is currently available on PC via Steam.
