Mercenaries Rebirth: Call of the Wild Lynx coming West this week
Circle Entertainment and RideOn Japan have announced that the latest entry into the Mercenaries series, Mercenaries Rebirth: Call of the Wild Lynx, is arriving on the Switch eShop in Europe and North America on November 11. While the game was initially announced for an October release in Japan, this latest announcement both confirms a Western release as well as offers an official translation for both a trailer and the game’s overview. Check those out below.
Mercenaries Rebirth is a tactical RPG set in a fantasy world.
Battles occur on quarter-view maps with height differences, wherein the front, back, and side of the map determine each battle’s outcome. Support effects depend on where allied characters from your party are in position, etc., features of high strategic maneuvers.
Talented Illustrator Makimura Shunsuke-san is the appointed character designer! Beautifully drawn characters play more active roles with rich facial expressions that vary from joy, sadness, anger, etc.
The gauge in the upper right corner of the screen builds up anytime the Player attacks and defends during battles. Store up enough power to activate a particular skill called “Rebirth Exceed”! Each character has unique talents, including dealing with godly damage to enemies and reviving fallen allies who cannot fight.
・Smooth Character Animations
Animations play a more active role now. During battles, smooth animations were made by animating parts of the characters’ pixel art. Both human characters and monsters move a lot more vividly than ever compared to previous titles in the series!
・Battle Maps Transformed Into 3D
3D models produce battle maps, and the camera angles can rotate during the Player’s Turn. Hidden items, etc., can be found by rotating the camera !?
・Full Options Setting
Options settings include turning the Grid Display ON/OFF on the 3D Battle Maps, “Skill Easy Play,” and “Faster Movement Play,” etc., which are more suitable for repeat play value.
Mercenaries Rebirth: Call of the Wild Lynx arrives digitally on the Switch eShop on November 11.
