Nippon Ichi’s RPG Destiny Connect Slightly Pushed Back to Further Enhance the Game
Nippon Ichi Software's time travel, turn-based RPG Destiny Connect slightly pushed back in Japan in order to further improve the game.
Nippon Ichi Software announced via its Japanese official website that Destiny Connect will be delayed by two weeks. Initially scheduled to release for PS4 and Switch on February 28, it will now launch on March 14 in Japan. As always with these kinds of delays, the only reason publicly disclosed is “it’s in order to polish the game and enhance its quality”.
Destiny Connect is Nippon Ichi’s newest JRPG, starring a girl named Sherry and her group of friends which includes a time-traveling robot named Isaac. Together they must save the world from a time stop phenomenon on the first day of 2000. The game is inspired by such end of the millennia theories and plotting, and will have Sherry time travel to many different eras, both in the past and in the future.
You can read more about Destiny Connect‘s story, characters and its turn-based battle system in our article which covered the game’s reveal in Famitsu. Game director Yoshihiko Toda also indicated he’d like Destiny Connect to please people like him, who grew up with SNES era RPGs, as if a game of that era was made with current technology and 3D graphics. I have high hopes for the game and hopefully, it will not disappoint. You can take a look at Destiny Connect‘s first trailer and screenshots here.
Nippon Ichi didn’t announce the game in the west yet, but there’s no reason why it wouldn’t come over.
