Earth’s Dawn

Earth Wars arrived on the Japanese Switch eShop earlier today. It’s now out in Europe as well, and Nintendo’s website lists the game’s launch for tomorrow in North America.

Somewhat confusingly, Earth Wars already came west under the English name Earth’s Dawn. The western version was originally handled by Rising Star Games. But since One or Eight is in charge of the Switch release directly in North America and Europe, they’ve decided to keep the original title. In all regions on Switch, the game is officially called Earth Wars.

Here’s a brief overview:

“In the year 2020 the world has become a nest for the unknown hostile organisms (E.B.E.). No current weapons appear to make any impact on the E.B.E. leaving humanity powerless, and on the brink of destruction. However, humanity has now got one last hope for survival in the development of bioarmor which fuses the EBE’s body tissue with metal. These are the Special Enhanced A.N.T.I troops who have incorporated this weaponry with remodeling surgery. With the power of the A.N.T.I., humanity for the first time successfully destroys the EBE Baron class. In the wake of this victory, humanity has mounted a large-scale counteroffensive. With the hopes of the new strength of the A.N.T.I.”


Earth’s Dawn (otherwise known as Earth Wars in Japan) is now available on the Switch eShop. Get a look at some footage below.

A couple of years ago, the 2D action side-scroller Earth’s Dawn came to a few different platforms. That same game is now confirmed for Switch.

A specific release date hasn’t been announced for Earth’s Dawn. However, since it’s expected within the next few days, January 25 could be a likely target.
