Fans of niche Japanese games may be familiar with games such as Omega Quintet, Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Curry God, or Mary Skelter: Nightmares. The english versions of these games were all ported to PC by one Ghostlight Studios. The British studio is now expanding its horizons, and announces in a recent blog post that it will now port Japanese games to Nintendo Switch.
You shouldn’t worry about this taking away from Ghostlight Studios’ PC releases as the developer expects to bring these Japanese games to both Nintendo Switch and PC. The team is already hard at work on its first Nintendo Switch port, a Japanese RPG. While the team won’t divulge on the game they’re working on just yet, the experience has been described as fun, which can only mean good prospects.
The announcement of Nintendo Switch ports represents a return to console development for Ghostlight Studios. Its last console game was Elminage Gothic, a classic-style dungeon crawler developed back in 2013.
Ghostlight Studios’ latest game is Mary Skelter: Nightmares. Developed by Compile Heart, players dive into a 3D dungeon RPG as Jack, a boy trapped in a prison-like environment with his childhood friend Alice. As the two try to escape, they run into characters inspired by European fairy tales such as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Snow White, and more.
