How would the classic NES-style RPG format turn out on a modern HD system? Square isn’t interested in going that far back, but Kemco is. Will Asdivine Hearts, now on Switch, satisfy your classic roleplaying cravings?
Asdivine Hearts was first released in early 2017 for three different Playstation-branded devices (PS3, PS4 and Vita). A Wii U version came out shortly after that, but the real audience is on Switch now, so it’s made the leap again. You can find the game in the Nintendo eShop starting today.
If you’ve never heard of Asdivine Hearts before, here’s some official backstory:
One year prior, the world of Asdivine was enveloped by a brilliant flash of light. Since that time, the influence of shadow has only continued to grow ever more powerful across the face of the land. And though the event itself was undoubtedly connected with the heavens, few people seem to have realized the far-reaching implications of what transpired. Now turning to the present, a surprising revelation awaits a young man by the name of Zack and his childhood friend, Stella, in the capital from a chubby cat claiming to be none other than the Light Deity and declaring the world to be on the verge of a great collapse. Although skeptical at first, this band of unlikely adventurers soon finds this chance encounter to be only the beginning of an adventure set to not only change their lives, but their fates, as well.
- Groundbreaking Visual Quality: The world of Asdivine has been rendered with stunning detail, from meandering clouds to lapping waves, sparkling magic to slithering creatures, and even dynamic skill effects.
- Limitless Customization: By taking puzzle piece-like jewels and setting them in a box known as a “rubix,” players are able to customize characters in ways like never before!
- Loads of Extra Content: The game features plenty of subquests, a battle arena, treasure to dig for, and an enemy guide to collect information for. How far can you level and how many millions of damage can you dish out? All these challenges await you and more!
There is no Switch-specific Asdivine Hearts trailer yet, so enjoy this Playstation version. The Switch port should look the same. It costs just $12.99, and with so much to do, it translates to classic RPG goodness for mere pennies an hour.
