After it was previously listed incorrectly on the eShop, Idea Factory has announced a final western release date for Moero Chronicle Hyper. The game launches in North America and Europe on April 26.

Although the game previously appeared on other platforms, Moero Chronicle Hyper will have some new features on Switch. Find the full rundown below.

Early on in Switch’s lifecycle, Nintendo had some issues with the eShop in which release dates listed on the store would sometimes turn out to be incorrect. This really hadn’t been a problem in quite some time, but has now happened again with Moero Chronicle Hyper.

According to what was listed on the store, Moero Chronicle Hyper was set to debut in the west this Thursday. Unfortunately, that date turned out to be incorrect. Idea Factory says it’s “currently working to change it” and will announce a final release date “soon”. When we have that information, we’ll let you know.

Moero Chronicle Hyper joined the Japanese Switch eShop at the end of January. Idea Factory followed up soon after that and shared the surprising news that the game will also be released in the west. Thanks to a listing on the eShop, we have a final release date.

Moero Chronicle Hyper was previously scheduled for a general spring launch in North America and Europe. However, the eShop listing shows a final date of March 15.

The dungeon-crawler RPG Moero Chronicle Hyper landed on the Japanese Switch eShop earlier today. You can get a look at some footage in the video below.

As part of latest issue of Famitsu in Japan, Idea Factory president Yoshiteru Satou confirmed that more Switch ports of their previous console titles are on the way.

Specifically, Satou made this comment in regards to the company’s Otomate brand — which encompasses their “girl games” titles. From the sounds of things, the Otomate brand is what fans should expect to see grow on the Switch moving forward.

Seperately, Compile Heart’s president Norihisa Kochiwa was also interviewed, and stated that they will announce “a new RPG that follows current trends” later this Spring. At this time, it is unsure if this new project is involved wit the Switch.

Fairy Fencer F felt very familiar to Idea Factory fans when it launched half a decade ago thanks to it using the same system and mechanics as the developer’s most successful property, the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. The game not only had the same arena turn-based RPG combat that made Hyperdimension Neptunia stick out from other JRPGs, but was progressed in a visual novel-like format with tons of dialogue and mostly static images and a much more tactical menu and layout that could change the pace of a battle in the blink of an eye. Still, Fairy Fencer F had its issues, with the occasional technical hiccups, some game breaking moments, prolonged tutorials, and a multitude of other minute things that eventually pile up and take a toll on the overall experience. Thankfully, an “enhanced” version released a few years later with Advent Dark Force, which has been the standard Fairy Fencer F game moving forward. It had tons of quality-of-life enhancements, as well as all DLC included from its original release and even included new story routes that were accessible through key decisions the player would make throughout the game. Advent Dark Force made Fairy Fencer F feel, for the most part, polished and complete. While Idea Factory’s PC ports haven’t had the best track record Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force was certainly playable on that platform and is a ton of fun. Sadly, that is more than one could say about the state of the Switch version.
