Dragon Star Varnir just launched for Switch in Japan. There hadn’t been any news for the west, but that has now changed.

Idea Factory announced today that Dragon Star Varnir will launch in the west this summer. It will contain all of the original Japanese art.

Here’s an overview of the game, along with the opening movie:

Dragon Star Varnir’s Switch port was announced earlier this year with a release window of Spring 2021. Well, now the release date has been confirmed as May 27, 2021 for Japan. 

The game will be coming out on the Japanese eShop for 4,800 yen. It is not confirmed if the port will support English language options, but given that the previously released Steam and PS4 versions support English, it is likely that the worldwide release will also.


The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has revealed that Dragon Star Varnir will be arriving on Switch in Japan this Spring. Originally a Japanese PS4 release in 2018, the game made its way West the following year and subsequently hit Steam as a worldwide release not long after.
