First English Trailer for Stranger of Sword City Revisited, New Demo Announced

Experience has shared the first English trailer for Stranger of Sword City Revisited.

Featured above, the new trailer for the upcoming dungeon RPG shows off its core story, gameplay, as well as the various enhancements and additions made to the new version.

The developer also confirmed a free playable demo for the game, launching alongside the full version. You’ll be able to play for eight hours of the full game, and if you purchase the full release, you can transfer your save data.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Experience:

From the present day, to the parallel world. Survive in the land of polar night! The airplane you were travelling on vanished mysteriously, without a trace. You awaken to an unfamiliar starry night sky. It is the Sword City Escario, where shining butterflies dance… Before you lies a land of strange creatures, fearsome monsters, and countless mysterious labyrinths. You are the Chosen One: The Stranger of Sword City.

Stranger of Sword City Revisited uses the previously released by NIS America PS Vita version of Stranger of Sword City as the base of the game. Though, with the additional content of new classes, reworked combat & gameplay system, items and additional dungeon players will be able to enjoy a different experience from the original game!

*The Story will be mostly similar to the original title, though there are new additional events.

Stranger of Sword City Revisited will launch for PS Vita digitally on the PlayStation Store on February 28th in North America, for $29.99.

    That’s a hell of a quick turnaround from the original release to the enhanced version.

    The original game was terribly balanced and I didn’t enjoy playing it. They should’ve at least offered an upgrade option for the owners of the vanilla version.

    If I remember correctly, the original was no victim to censorship, right? That would imply that this would stay true for this version as well.

    But can someone confirm for me if it will feature dual-audio? Then I would consider getting it, because I find Handheld Dungeon-Crawler quite entertaining. I was positively suprised about Dungeon Travellers 2 afterall. (sadly I didn’t knew about the 4 CG’s that where changed in the western version…)

    I own the original and it does indeed feature dual audio.

    How long was the wait in Japan?

    They basically just had to import the original localization and update it. Makes sense that the localization was super quick for the updated rerelease.
