Battle Chasers: Nightwar Preview

When I heard that there would be a video game about a 90s comic called Battle Chasers, I wasn’t sure what to think. Would the game be interesting to someone who never read the comic? What was the game about? What was the game? When I heard that it was a turn-based rpg, I started to get a bit interested. And the more footage I saw of the game, the better Battle Chasers Nightwar looked to me. I received a review copy of the Nintendo Switch version recently and have had a chance to play it some. What do I think of Battle Chasers so far?


Battle Chasers: Nightwar impressed me right away. Before I even started the game, there was a well animated cutscene and after that, when I got into the game, there was another well down cutscene. Battle Chasers introduces its story with fully voiced and comic book style cutscenes. I was blown away. And best of all, the actual game itself is impressing me so far too!

Battle Chasers is a turn-based rpg with a cool battle system. The characters in battle look great and are well animated. There is a lot of detail in these battles. The menu system that you use to attack enemies is pretty easy to learn too.

Out of battle, the game has an overhead view while in dungeons and on the world map. The dungeons, especially, are very impressive looking. There is a lot of detail to these areas. And there is a lot to do in the dungeons, not just fighting enemies. There are things to find, read, and you can go fishing too!

The world map is a little more basic but still pretty nice. I like how you know where the enemy encounters on the map will be and there are things to find on the map along with the places to visit.

Battle Chasers is a lot more complex than I expected and I’m having a lot of fun with it so far. I can’t wait to see where the game takes me next!

Please keep an eye on for my full review of Battle Chasers: Nightwar for Nintendo Switch.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is currently available on the Nintendo Switch eshop!
