Knights in the Nightmare Remaster Hitting Japanese Switches in April

Developer Sting announced its remaster of Knights in the Nightmare will release for Nintendo Switch in Japan on April 7, 2022. The remaster is also planned for release in the country on iOS and Android, but these versions have not yet been dated.

Knights in the Nightmare is a combination of strategy RPG and top-down shooter as its part of Sting’s Dept. Heaven series alongside Riviera: The Promised Land, Yggdra Union, and Gungnir. The game originally released for Nintendo DS in Japan in 2008 and North America in 2009, with a PlayStation Portable version released in Japan and in North America in 2010. The game follows a wisp — the soul of a dead king — who is able to restore fallen knights to corporeal forms as they seek to continue protecting their world from the battles between Asgard and demons despite the disastrous fall of Aventheim Castle.

    I remember this game being GOD AWFUL. Why remaster it ? I hope it does good but I highly doubt it , so many other good choices

  2. While it was the weakest game from STING for me I still played it. It is a crime that they don’t localize these games. Especially since the other remastered STING Switch games including KitN have already been released in the west. So there already exists all the legwork and scripts.

    I really REALLY hoped that would rekindle interest over here for STING games so maybe they also localize the unlocalized Dept. Heaven games, but that seems to be never coming to pass now :-/
