If you had a Nintendo Switch or PS4 during February of 2019, you might’ve noticed a curious game with a storybook-esque style available at the eShop or Playstation Store. With a story seemingly ripped straight from a fairy-tale and atmospheric music to boot, it stood out from other games with it’s unique style of storytelling.
After it’s initial release in Japan, it arrived to North America with it’s charming tale. Now, almost a year after it’s official release westward, NIS America introduces Japan to the app available on Google Play and the App Store where it can be pre-ordered. It is expected to release on May 29 of 2020 in Japan with the same characters you’ve grown to love.
Haven’t heard of this game at all? That’s fine! Check out the trailer below, or take a look at the cursory summary we made below it.
A wolf with an enchanting voice sings under the light of the moon, inadvertently attracting a young prince through song. As he traverses to find the source of the music, the wolf attacks him out of reflex, blinding him. The imperfect heir, shunned by his family, was left to rot within an iron prison. Racked with guilt, the wolf trades her voice to the witch to gain a human form to help guide the prince back to the witch and restore his sight.
Along with the app, the game will also release with other language options such as:
- Chinese (Traditional)
If the mobile controls are too clunky, you also have the option to play with the PS4 controller. If you want to listen to the soundtrack on the go, there will a mode for that too.
The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is available on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 worldwide. The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince Android and iOS ports will appear in Japan on May 29 of 2020, fetching a price of about $18 (¥1,960 to be exact). Waiting for an official translation in your country? You might want to wait for an official release in your country’s App Store/Google Play rather then trying to nab the Japanese version and switching the language option to that of yours.
