NIS America released an English teaser trailer for Experience Inc.'s Stranger of Sword City (Tsurugi no Machi no Ihōjin) PlayStation Vita game on Tuesday, confirming that it will release in the West in spring 2016.
NIS America describes the game's story:
Your flight crashes after passing through a mysterious portal. As the sole survivor, you awaken to an unfamiliar land lit by stars you've never seen. This land is Escario, the city of swords. Quickly marked as the Chosen One, the Stranger of Sword City, you must defend this place, and choose your allegiances carefully as you scour the land for a way home.
Amazon Germany previously listed the game with Flashpoint AG as the distributor. Flashpoint AG is NIS America's German games distributor.
Experience Inc. developed the Tsurugi no Machi no Ihōjin game, and released it in Japan on the Xbox 360 in June 2014, and on the PC in August 2014, both with the subtitle Shiro no Ōkyū (White Palace). It was then released for the PlayStation Vita on January 22 with the subtitle Kuro no Ōkyū (Black Palace). An update for the game with a new art style is slated for release on the Xbox One in early 2016.
In the game, players choose from human, elf, dwarf, ney, and migmy races, and pick a character class, and navigate through dungeons to gain treasure while avoiding death from deadly traps.
