Rainbow Skies is a strategy jrpg that is a bit different from what you typically see in the genre. Is a good game? Will strategy fans enjoy it? Here is our review of Rainbow Skies for the Nintendo Switch!

Rainbow Skies is a strategy jrpg where the main character finds himself and his best friend living in the sky and then going to the surface accidently and ending up on a quest with a new friend. Yes we’ll keep the spoilers vague, so that you can enjoy this fun story more. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, with funny plot twists and dialogue that’ll have you laughing. Its is a good story, but the gameplay is even better!


In Rainbow Skies you explore environments that are three dimensional but not open world at all. The areas you explore have lot of stuff to find, even though they are very linear in scope. The exploration mode feels more like a regular jrpg than a strategy rpg. Then you go into battle and that’s where the turn-based strategy begins.

The battles in Rainbow Skies are grid based with characters having limited movement range. Unlike every other strategy rpg though, if you want to make a regular attack you just move the left analog stick forward and the character attacks. To cast spells and use items, you pull up a menu. This way of attacking makes battles feel partly like an action experience, though your characters and the enemies still take turns attacking. The mix of action, rpg, and strategy in Rainbow Skies makes this game a really unique and fun game. If you want a more traditional strategy rpg experience, Rainbow Skies isn’t that but it is a very unique experience that controls well and looks great too!


Rainbow Skies is a very good looking game. The environments and characters alike are detailed and colorful.

Overall, Rainbow Skies is a lot of fun. Its combination of rpg and strategy make it a unique experience on the Nintendo Switch. Strategy and rpg fans will really love this game.
