NIS America has taken to the PlayStation Blog to talk about and show off their Western bound version of Stranger of Sword City.

Stranger of Sword City, developed by Experience Inc., will feature many of the same customizable features RPG fans have come to expect: character appearance and age, race, talent, class, etc.

There will also be many in-game decisions to make, which will effect the world around you. Choices such as faction allegiances and how you’ll finance yourself will give you different perks and benefits to you and your party members.


Stranger of Sword City also features an ambush system; it allows you to observe enemies before jumping into battle with them, allowing you to know the enemies you’ll be facing and the loot they carry.


Lastly, the RPG has a leaderboard system so players can compare various things – like party members, level clear time and item strength – with players globally.

The game is set to launch in North America on March 22nd and in Europe on March 25th, and we recently learned of Stranger of Sword City‘s Limited Edition coming to the West as well.

    Yeah, one of the games I’m looking forward to the most!
    I think I’m going to love it a lot.
    Every dungeon crawler is an instant buy for me anyway, but this one looks just gorgeous! ^-^
    It reminds me of “Elminage: Original” and good Lord, did I love that one! ^.^
    Actually I still do. So far the only game I never threw off my SD-card! 😀
