Hong Kong – December 20, 2023 – Independent developer and publisher Eastasiasoft Limited announced today that acclaimed action RPG Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is coming soon for Nintendo Switch, with digital and physical release expected in Spring 2024. Inspired by Chinese legends and mythology, standalone epic Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is the latest and most advanced game in the series’ 33-year history.

This Nintendo Switch version of the game has been made possible by Eastasiasoft Limited in partnership with Softstar Entertainment Inc. and original developer DOMO Studio. Porting has been led by Eastasiasoft Limited in close cooperation with Catness Game Studios, and the game has undergone months of optimization for the best possible experience, making this one of the most visually impressive games to release late in the life of Nintendo Switch. The publisher is proud to bring such a massive action RPG to a new handheld audience, as this project exemplifies Eastasiasoft Limited’s mission to faithfully bring such games to western shores.

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is in its final stages of development for Nintendo Switch. For physical release, Eastasiasoft Limited has committed to having the full experience on the game card, which will require a 16GB card due to the RPG’s immense size, high-end graphics and cinematic presentation. Limited Editions will include the game, manual, soundtrack CD, art book and numbered certificate in a collector’s box. Preorders open with online retail partner Playasia this Friday, December 22nd at 10:00am ET / 7:00am PT / 3:00pm UK. Standard copies will also be available as an open preorder.

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 features subtitle support for English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.

About Xuan Yuan Sword 7

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is an action RPG with frenetic real-time combat, visceral 3D presentation and a rich cinematic narrative. It is a celebration of ancient China’s landscape, civilization and culture, infused with the mystique of its own legends in stark contrast to anachronistic technological designs. It is a world that is both familiar and mysterious, one of both science and spirituality, one that is waiting to be explored.

Take the role of the calm and reliable swordsman Taishi Zhao as he fights to protect his family and uncover the truth of a blight threatens all of China. With a story deeply rooted in ancient Chinese history and mythology, Xuan Yuan Sword 7 reimagines both as one fantastical and chaotic realm under the governance of a new Xin Dynasty.

Near the end of Western Han rule, the powerful prime minister of China superseded his Emperor, promising an era of peace and prosperity. But ten years later, that promise has never been fulfilled. Instead, a decade of war and famine has left China in ruin, and its salvation seems to lie in the hands of a Mohist swordsman who gains control of a fabled artifact called the Elysium Scroll. Can the science-seeking Mohists revive their former glory, or will they fade into the pages of forgotten history?

Key Features:

  • Journey across ancient China as a cinematic adventure unfolds.
  • Slash, block, dodge and riposte in combo-based real-time combat!
  • Control the Elysium Scroll to slow down time, absorb monsters or alter the environment.
  • Upgrade armor and weapons, develop passive skills and learn new techniques.
  • Explore a standalone story requiring no prior knowledge of Xuan Yuan.
  • Immerse yourself in the most advanced 3D visuals in series history!
