RideonJapan announced strategy RPG Mercenaries Lament: Requiem of the Silver Wolf launches April 19 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in Japan. The newly announced PlayStation 5 release is native instead of backwards compatible. A worldwide release is planned, but a release date was not announced.
Here’s an overview of Mercenaries Lament: Requiem of the Silver Wolf (Thanks, Gematsu):
Several years have passed since a mysterious epidemic suddenly plagued the continent. Victims of the plague became animated corpses—zombies—who attacked people, and the mercenaries who fight for a living spent their days doing the dirty work of exterminating them.
One day, Silver Wolf Company leader Johan encounters a man who calls himself the Grim Reaper. While Johan narrowly escaped the Grim Reaper’s blade, he was left with an ominous prophecy—“After 100 days, when the omen is at its strongest, an inescapable death will arrive.”
After driving away the Grim Reaper, a young maiden appeared before Johan. The maiden was said to be able to use miraculous arts to heal those who have fallen victim to the plague. Was the Grim Reaper just a nightmare that Johan saw after falling to the plague…?
Johan’s encounter with the maiden showed him the light. And so Johan and his companions become the maiden’s convoy and travel around the kingdom—one plagued by an epidemic—to confront its deadly fate…
Lastly, Mercenaries Lament: Requiem of the Silver Wolf is available now for Nintendo Switch in Japan.
