13 Sentinels Aegis Rim Switch Port & 2nd Anniversary Stream Summary

November 28, 2021

Atlus and Vanillaware announced on November 28 during the 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim 2nd anniversary stream that the game will be ported to Nintendo Switch.

13 Sentinels Aegis Rim Switch release date

The Switch port of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will be out in Japan on April 14, 2022. Stay tuned as we’ll get a date for the Switch port outside Japan soon. Update: the Switch version will be out in the US on April 12, 2022.

The DLCs of the Japanese PS4 version’s limited edition will also be included from the start on the Japanese physical Nintendo Switch version. These are the Digital Secret File artbook and the Digital Artworks artbook. The reversible Switch cover also has a brand new illustration:

The Japanese version of the game will also include the English dub. Moreover, the Switch version of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will add 2 new weapons for each of the 13 protagonists’ Sentinels. Some protagonists will get the same weapon though, so technically it’s not like 26 weapons are getting added.

I’ve personally awaited this moment for a long time. Especially since the PS Vita version of the game was canceled. Now it’s finally back to portable platforms as well as on PS4. 13 Sentinels is a masterpiece and one of the best games of all time, anyone should play and it’s delightful to hear it’ll be even more accessible now.

Stream summary

Similar to the Shin Megami Tensei V launch stream, the beginning of the stream had a lot of goofing around, featuring Ami Koshimizu (Yuki Takamiya). This time she was with Takayuki Ishii (Takatoshi Hijiyama), introducing the new 13 Sentinels goods. It was full of meta jokes like how Jack Frost was disguised as B.J., so you won’t get all the jokes unless you’ve actually watched the goods segment of the SMT V launch stream as well.

The stream has just ended so stay tuned as we’ll update this article with a full summary.
