Mercenaries Lament Gets Japanese Trailer
Developer Rideon released its first trailer for tactical RPG Mercenaries Lament. The two-minute video introduces the game’s characters and shows some of its isometric combat ahead of its release for Nintendo Switch in Japan on February 9, 2023.
Mercenaries Lament is a standalone title set in a world plagued by an epidemic that casues its victims to rise as zombie-like beings. Mercenaries make a living exterminating them, with the game following Silver Wolf Company leader Johan. Johan encounters a man known as the Grim Reaper and receives a prophecy foretelling an inescapable death in 100 days. Shortly after, he encounters and joins up with a maiden who has the apparent power to cure the plague. The game is also planned for release on PlayStation 4 in Japan, with no announcement regarding a western release made at this time.
