Mercenaries Lament Hitting PS4, PS5 in Japan Next Week
Developer Rideon announced that tactical RPG Mercenaries Lament will release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan on April 19, 2023. The PlayStation console release follows the game’s launch on Nintendo Switch in February 2023. No announcement regarding a western release has been made at this time, though previous titles have been localised by Circle Entertainment.
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.
Looks pretty good, but my Switch just bricked itself while it said it was updating. That’s after joycon drift.. maybe Nintendo hardware is just trash…
