Riviera: The Promised Land Remaster Coming to PC, Mobile in Japan

Developer Sting announced that its remaster of Riviera: The Promised Land — released for Nintendo Switch in Japan this week — will also be coming to PC, iOS, and Android in Japan. A release date has not been announced, nor has a western release of any of the remaster’s platforms, though the developer did release its Yggdra Union: We’ll Never Fight Alone remaster internationally last year.

Riviera: The Promised Land is the first title in the Dept. Heaven series, which draws from Norse mythology, and was originally released for the WonderSwan Color in Japan in 2002. The game was remade on Game Boy Advance in 2004, with Atlus releasing the Game Boy Advance version in North America in 2005. A PlayStation Portable remake was released in Japan in 2006, with Atlus releasing it in North America in 2007 and 505 Games releasing it in Europe in 2008.

Riviera: The Promised Land follows Ein, a Grim Angel who is required to battle against demons as well as other Grim Angels. He is joined by heroines Fia, Lina, Serene, and Cierra, as well as feline familiar Rose, with the game including dating sim elements and multiple endings. The game features a chapter structure with turn-based combat where players select three of the five available party members to participate and are given a rating based on their performance.
