An RPG created by the artists of the Secret of Mana series will be ported to the Nintendo Switch next month.
EGGLIA: Rebirth is an undated and optimized version of the mobile game EGGLIA: Legend of the Redcap. Developers said that Rebirth is enhanced with updated graphics and game mechanics in addition to “bags of new content” that include new characters and more than 50 missions and events. New mechanics include the freedom to roam around Egglia, balancing battle mechanics and items.
“It’s wonderful to be able to bring the world of EGGLIA to Nintendo Switch,” said Shinichi Kameoka, President and CEO of Brownies. “Particularly in this iconic year for us at Brownies, which marks the 10th anniversary of the studio, and my 30th year working in game development. EGGLIA: Rebirth is a symbol of our own rebirth: the first game to be published by Brownies, as well as our 10th anniversary title.
“We hope everyone enjoys the new world of Egglia, which has been reborn while keeping all the things we loved about the original game. We believe that the large amount of additional content will be enjoyed by both those who played the smartphone version and those who are new to the world of Egglia. We developed this game with the hope that it would be a place for our players to “go home” to, and help players recharge at the end of a busy day. We hope you will pick it up and try it for yourself!”
Players will explore the land of Egglia as Chabo, a redcap who must navigate the world, hunting monsters for experience and gathering resources using a turn-based dice combat system. Players will uncover a series of mythical eggs that can be hatched to unlock different lands of the world of Egglia to explore and gather materials to grow their village and build homes for the host of characters they meet during the story. These homes can be upgraded and furnished with numerous fun decorations allowing players to customize and decorate as desired to create their own unique worlds.
EGGLIA: Rebirth will launch on Nintendo Switch on February 10.
