Baroque's Switch re-release is just days away (in Japan)

News by Matt S. 

One of the darkest, most intense roguelikes ever created is Sting's Baroque. Originally released on the Sega Saturn, but then remade for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii, Baroque has never been a mainstream hit, but its raw intensity and creative vision has always earned it a place of respect. Now that original PlayStation Baroque is just around the corner; it lands on November 12 on Nintendo Switch.

At the moment the game is only confirmed for a release in Japan, and who knows if this will be able to find a publisher for a global release. By all reports the original is the superior version. I've only ever played the game on Wii, so I'm interested to find out. Fingers crossed a publisher does take it on.

Sting has released a new trailer that gives you a tantalising look at the game in action.
