Unicorn Overlord

Unicorn Overlord update 1.04

Atlus and Vanillaware announced a new update for Unicorn Overlord today, which is version 1.04.

The update includes some smaller new features as well as improvements. Things also wouldn’t be complete if bug fixes weren’t a part of the patch notes:

Here’s the full rundown:

Vanillaware’s latest title Unicorn Overlord released only a few weeks ago, and it’s doing quite well for itself. In fact, it was announced that the title recently sold over 500,000 copies, a great success for the game. Now, thanks to an interview recently conducted with GamersBraves, we have a bit more information on the background of its development.

One interesting detail that emerged is the fact that the game wasn’t even originally planned for Switch; it began development in 2016 and was intended to launch on the PS4 and PS Vita before plans changed to accommodate a worldwide release across different platforms.

Unicorn Overlord sales

Atlus recently shared the first sales milestone for Unicorn Overlord, revealing that the game has sold over 500,000 copies. That goes for all platforms combined.

Atlus made that figure known in a Japanese trailer for the title. This video was uploaded nine days ago, so the numbers should have only gone up since then.

Unicorn Overlord review

System: Switch
Release date: March 8, 2024
Developer: Vanillaware
Publisher: Atlus


It’s not very often you find a developer that is so truly passionate about their game that they will fund it out of their own pocket when the budget runs out, so determined are they to realize their creative vision that money ceases to be a factor. But this is par for the course for Vanillaware, who have delivered consistently excellent titles for over twenty years now. With Unicorn Overlord, a game ten years in the making, the company has crafted one of the most intricate, engaging, and mechanically dense tactical RPGs I’ve played in years.
