Stranger of Sword City Heads to PC in June 2016

stranger of sword city 03-08-16-9

NIS America has announced that Stranger of Sword City is heading to PC, via Steam.

The Experience-developed dungeon RPG will arrive on the platform sometime this June.

PC users will be able to use the new “Picture Gate” feature, which lets you upload an image to be used as a character in game.

You can find our review for the PS Vita version of the game here (we highly recommend it).

    COOL! I just put it on my backlog yesterday because I don’t have a Vita or a Xbone. Great news.

    Rather surprising to see NISA publishing this on PC, and in such a timely fashion too; I was expecting it to be self-published by Experience instead.

    Never thought I’d say this, but if NISA keeps this up, they might just establish themselves as a household name on PC as well.

    Natural Doctrine, Operation Abyss, Rodea were all fine as far as I can tell (no backlash or anything).

    Cancerous localization team that would butcher visuals and translation, cut game contents, and also added (sometimes never patched) game-breaking bugs that werent present in JP versions of games.

    I think nisa has also strong ties with atlus usa too.

    Good question!

    I’d say wait until the game is out and check it out, see if any users report any problems, and Steam gives you two hours of playtime or two weeks of ownership(whichever comes first) to issue a full refund, no questions asked so you can buy it and check if it works on your computer or ask for a refund.

    Yep, NISA is very shit tier when it comes to localization jobs.

    They take good game from Japan and give people censored buggy messes back.

    I’d say don’t support those bad releases but if a game comes out fine then it’s ok to go for it.

    Nah, I dont think I will.

    Supporting NISA would be a pretty heavy weight on my conscious.

    Never bought one of their games and until they change their ways (which wont ever happen), I never will.

    Remember that NISA is still going to be releasing a censored version of Criminal Girls on the PC. Seems they plan on bringing their censorship baggage with them to the PC platform as well.

    And you know your argument is completely retarded, fuccboi, as you know me well enough that I avoid Sony’s jewery.

    I’m also still waiting for a CFW on Vita btw

    There’s a difference between owning a hardware and renting games online, fuccboi.

    Cant deny Vita is built like a security prison though, but you know me pretty well enough that I just use the very basic functions of the handheld and wait for a CFW to come around.

    Hasn’t stopped Nisa from adding port-like bugs to games tho.
    So still, thread carefully.

    They did good with Demon Gaze and Fairy Fencer F actually so it’s tricky these days to outright say whether they’re going to shit up the localization. Safe bet is still ‘yes’ of course.

    Steam license functions just like a CD license.

    Difference is that you have to access the files online trough their server.

    If Valve doesnt provide people with access to the files in the future then theres no future for their own lives aside from a cozy bed in a prison cell.

    Just to be sure thought I Crack and backup everything just like I did with CDs.

    CFW doesnt stop the locked down hardware and software thought.

    I really hope someone mods whatever the fuck they censored back in. are alot of people telling them that censoring their products hurts business and makes people not want to buy from them? are they just to fucking hard headed to NOT mess with shit?

    Thought about cancelling my preorder but decided against it. There’s no telling the kinds of shit NISA could add to this game, or take away from it, to wreck it. I’ll deal with the punishing difficulty and smaller resolution to avoid even a chance of getting NISA’d.

    JESUS FUCK, NISA. Can you fucking wait for the game to drop on Vita first BEFORE tanking it’s sales!?

    PC ports are fine, but goddamn, do not actively sabotage your own product doing so!

    Very nice. I was worried at first since Experience Inc. publicly stated that they had no plans to handle the PC version. I guess it makes sense for NISA to do it for them.
