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.
