Today, Nicalis announced that Code of Princess EX is in development for Switch. It’s due out physically and digitally this summer.
Code of Princess was originally made for 3DS. Atlus published the action-RPG way back in 2012.
On Switch, Code of Princess EX will include HD visuals, local co-op, as well as “numerous other gameplay additions and enhancements.” Nicalis mentions “smarter AI, updated balancing, a new character leveling-up system and overall better playability.”
Here’s some additional information and a trailer:
The game features classic “hack-and-slash” gameplay where players can freely move between three different planes of action and attack enemies using a variety of powerful fighting combos, lock-on and burst systems. Over 50 different characters are playable and upgradeable throughout multiple game modes, including Campaign, Free Play and Bonus Quests.
The story within Code of Princess EX follows Princess Solange of DeLuxia as she fights to restore order in a world where monsters are trying to overtake the human race. Armed with the legendary sword DeLuxcalibur, Solange assembles a team of talented fighters to join her quest. Together, they embark on an epic journey to confront the monster uprising and try to discover its secret origins.
Code of Princess EX will be sold for $39.99. The launch edition will include a full-color instruction booklet and a bonus mystery item that will be revealed soon at retail.
