Empire of Angels IV will officially be the first game in the nearly thirty-year-old tactical RPG series to launch on consoles come late June. It’ll come out on June 23 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the Switch release following one day later on June 24. The game is digital-only outside of Asia and will cost $19.99.
Here’s the game’s opening movie, followed by an overview of the game directly from the publisher, EastAsiaSoft.
For the first time since the series began in 1993, Empire of Angels arrives on console! As the latest entry in the storied tactical RPG franchise, this updated edition of Empire of Angels IV features lush 3D graphics, strategic turn-based combat and a huge cast of gorgeous female characters fully voiced in Mandarin, along with improved English sub-titles.
Offering a fresh perspective on the history of Asgard, Empire of Angels IV reintroduces its lore, characters and mechanics with no prior knowledge necessary to enjoy this brand new adventure. Deep fantasy-themed political intrigue and the looming terror of war are balanced by light-hearted character interactions, slice-of-life humor, alluring designs and the ability to shatter your all-female opponents’ armor!
Join the Namtar Investigation Team as they patrol the Land of Asgard to maintain order against a plague that drives ordinary people to mindless violence. After Niya, captain of the Valkyrie Kingdom’s legion, witnesses a shining orb fall from the sky, everything she understands about Asgard’s history and fragile peace is called into question. Accompanied by trusted allies as well as new friends, Niya leads the team in a world-spanning mission to uncover the truth, all as the mysterious plague threatens to tear them apart.
