This morning Arc System Works reached out with a press release announcing Wizard’s Symphony for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

The game was presented yesterday during a livestream and teased a few days ago, but the date for the reveal sounded suspicious to many. The press release sent today confirms that it’s not an April Fool.

The game is a “dramatic dungeon crawling RPG” belonging to the series started with the 1995 classic Wizard’s Harmony for Sega Saturn and the original PlayStation. After over 20 years, the franchise is back, and it will feature character design by Moo, who also worked on Wizard’s Harmony.

In the gallery below you can see the three main characters, Alto, Spica, and Merak, and the official logo, alongside the nostalgic cover of the original Wizard’s Harmony for PlayStation.

There is currently no release date besides a generic 2018. The price in Japan will be 6,800 yen plus taxes, and it’ll be strictly for one player.

According to the developer, more news about the game are coming down the line.
