Orangeblood, a JRPG inspired by 90s hip-hop, has a slightly more specific release window on Switch. Publisher Playism and developer Grayfox Software have today confirmed a Q2 2020 launch window on Nintendo’s console.

Here’s the latest information on Orangeblood:

Playism has announced the delay of the release of Grayfax Software-developed RPG Orangeblood from what was slated to be a November release window to early 2020. The reason given was “in order to polish the game to the highest quality,” the publisher announced.

The game, set in an alternate timeline at the end of the 20th century, shows off a subtropical island where players can explore the faded, rusty world filled with hanging out in bars and gun fights with cute girls. The guns themselves are randomly generated and pack quite the punch.

This interesting title is in the works for PC (Steam,) Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.
