Gaijin Entertainment has announced a remastered version of Blades of Time to be launched on the Nintendo Switch. An announcement trailer was also released showing what to expect on the Nintendo Switch.
Blades of Time, the time-warping Hack ’n’ Slash action adventure featuring fast-paced combat with swords, firearms, and magic, is now heading for launch on Nintendo Switch on May 14. The remastered Switch release is an upgrade over Gaijin Entertainment’s PC version of the game, which is still a fan-favorite with many and currently enjoys 86% positive reviews on Steam.
The story-driven single-player campaign sees the daring treasure huntress Ayumi set out on a journey to an ancient island to reach the hidden treasures of a long lost civilization. To fight her way through hordes of monsters and other creatures of magic, the heroine can perform more than 40 unique attacks, utilizing powerful melee combos, firearms, powerful magic and even rewind time.
With Ayumi’s time-rewind ability, players can bring an almost limitless amount of strategies to the battlefield. After a time rewind, Ayumi’s shadow in time will repeat the last actions of the player, like fighting monsters or luring them away. At the same time, the player can then charge into battle with Ayumi again, using the additional firepower – or detraction – to defeat even the biggest hordes of enemies or the most powerful bosses.
Blades of Time was originally launched on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 in March of 2012, with a PC release coming a month later in April.
Pricing of the remastered version for the Switch has not been confirmed by Gaijin, but we expect it to be announced in the coming days.
