by Gary Catig
Netmarble has made a name for themselves by developing quality mobile games. Now, they’re ready to jump onto consoles with their first game for the Nintendo Switch: Seven Knights – Time Wanderer. It is a console exclusive version of one of the company’s popular mobile role-playing games.
Seven Knights – Time Wanderer is a visually beautiful turn based and real time RPG based on Seven Knights Mobile. It will have all new control and battle systems compared to the original and game content optimized for consoles. The game will also have an all new original story and will not rely on any gacha systems to acquire new characters as they will be obtained through natural progression of the story mode.
Young Jae Pak, Executive Producer of Netmarble, says:
Since Seven Knights’ 2014 Korean launch, it’s been quite humbling and exciting to see the game grow in global popularity. We could not be more thrilled that Seven Knights – Time Wanderer – will be Netmarble’s first Nintendo game. The team can’t wait to share what makes Seven Knights – Time Wanderer – so special to a new audience, so we will work closely with Nintendo to ensure our first console game is exciting for Nintendo Switch gamers to play with.
The game’s story follows the eighth member of the Seven Knights, Vanessa, who is equipped with a powerful sentient hourglass known as Sandy. After falling into the twists of space and time, Vanessa must set out to return home safely. Original characters from the mobile version will accompany players on the real time, turn based, combat oriented journey.
