Tanzia – an indie Open World RPG coming to Switch in December


Originally in early access on Steam, Arcanity Inc.’s Tanzia is now officially coming to the Nintendo Switch for its premier platform this December.

About Tanzia:

Tanzia is a single-player RPG that combines fast-paced strategic combat with elements of favorite classic RPGs in an open 3D world of magic and monsters. It features beautiful hand-painted artwork and a luscious island setting filled with a colorful cast of characters. Tanzia’s flavorful world, story-centric design, and immersive yet rich action gameplay were inspired by Nintendo’s approach to game design, especially the Legend of Zelda series.

For decades, the Akazi people have enjoyed peace – a peace won by your legendary grandfather. But now a great evil has returned and appears unstoppable.

Tanzia’s story design was developed in collaboration with Kevin Saunders (whose previous work includes Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer, and Torment: Tides of Numenera). In Tanzia, you’ll experience a tale of both grand heroics and personal growth. Can you follow in your grandfather’s footsteps and save your people from destruction?

Already in
 Early Access for the PC, we have switched gears to bring the final release of Tanzia to the Switch in December 2017. Please stay tuned to our social media sites (Facebook and Twitter) for news and updates.

What’s new for Nintendo Switch?

Good question! In handheld mode, you’ll have the option to use touch screen controls to select enemies, NPCs, loot, and spells. We’re also rebuilding the handheld presets to provide a more authentic console experience.
