Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia Heads To Nintendo Switch Today

Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia, a sequel to the original Brigandine, is out on Nintendo Switch today.

Brought to life by Japanese video game company Happinet, in partnership with developer Matrix Software, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia is the long awaited follow up to the classic Brigandine: The Legend of Forsena. After the precursor to this fantasy tactics title arrived on PlayStation in 1998, it seems like the long wait might be worth it with talent like composer Tenpei Sato (Disgaea Series and Brigandine: Grand Edition back in 2000), scriptwriter Kenji Terada (Fantasy Fantasy I – III) and art/character designer Raita Kazama (Xenoblade Chronicles) all bringing a wealth of experience to the latest instalment in this series.

“The Brigandine series has had continuous requests for a sequel since its initial release 20 years ago,” said Kazuhiro Igarashi, Producer at Happinet. “We’re honored to bring this legendary classic to fans and have poured our hearts and souls into the new Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia. Our hope is that players young and old will appreciate the efforts and feel that we’ve met their high expectations as they command grand armies to conquer their five rival nations.”

The Front Lines

Players picking up Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia today will find themselves thrown into a world where war is almost the norm. A vast realm is ruled over by six nations, each with their own interests in mind. As players pick one of these houses to command, a vast campaign opens up, where gamers must build an army and ensure that they make the best choices for their own survival. Of course, this also means stepping into combat. The turn based tactical encounters in Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia allows players to test their skill while sampling the rich and varied artwork of the 40 base locations, over 100 unique knights, and 50 monster types in Runersia.


With a single nation’s plotline can take over 30 hours and a Challenge mode that adds hundreds of hours of replayability, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia looks like a must buy for fans of the old school adventure.
