After successfully released Tanzia on Steam this April, Arcanity Inc. is now planing to release Tanzia for Nintendo Switch. Moreover, the Switch user will have the option to use touch screen controls to select enemies, NPCs, loot, and spells. The developer is also rebuilding the handheld presets to provide a more authentic console experience.
Tanzia‘s story design was developed in collaboration with Kevin Saunders (whose previous work includes Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer, and Torment: Tides of Numenera). In Tanzia, you’ll experience a tale of both grand heroics and personal growth. Can you follow in your grandfather’s footsteps and save your people from destruction?
Get ready for the Nintendo Switch announcement trailer below.
We also have the rundown for you, via Steam.
Become the greatest shaman to ever lob a fireball. Retrace the steps of your Akazi ancestors to prevent your island home of Tanzia from being overrun by an ancient evil. Your elders will guide you, but it is up to you to master your skills and live up to your family’s legacy. An old-style RPG made with modern tech and set in a unique world, Tanzia combines elements of favorite classic action-adventure RPGs in an open 3D world full of magic and monsters.
