    Aksys Games has yet to publicly announce the release date of Record of Agarest War for Nintendo Switch.

Further, the Amazon product page for Record of Agarest War Limited Edition lists the same March 9, 2023 release date.

    Here’s an overview of Record of Agarest War via Aksys Games:

    The tactical RPG features over 100 hours of gameplay, not including side/bonus missions, and a unique Soul Breed system to ensure the heroic line continues into future generations. The original game debuted in North America in 2008.

    This updated version of Record of Agarest War includes all DLC for the game, as well as visual enhancements such as upscaled 2D art and full HD movies. The opening movie features music never before released in the West.

Perfect collaborative attacks by positioning your forces on the battlefield and wait for the right moment to string together massive combo attacks using multiple party members, both in melee and ranged attacks.

    About

    War darkened the skies of Agarest. Not a simple war between mortals, easily ended by divine intervention, but a war that split the gods themselves. Armies such as the world had never seen before, and would never see again, clashed in the skies of Agarest, across its surface, and even in the caverns that wound their way through its interior.

    As is the way in war, many died on both sides, gods and mortals alike, and the war left Agarest broken, blackened, and dead. The gods wept for their paradise, and in a final act of creation, sacrificed themselves to bring life back to its charred and twisted surface. Though the gods are long dead, the withering darkness that caused their war is not. Imprisoned for millennia, its bonds have begun to weaken, and a shadow once again spreads across the surface of the world.

    Born into this world perched unknowingly on the brink of the apocalypse, a young man by the name of Leonhardt and his descendants are the last, best hope for Agarest. Their journey will span generations and continents as they strive to once again bring peace to their beleaguered world, even as the cost of their own souls.

    Key features:
