The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince Coming West 2019on August 8, 2018 by Max Williams
NIS America has announced The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince will be coming west on PS4 and Switch in 2019! A lovely collector’s edition called the Storybook Edition has been announced for both consoles as well. Take a look at the game’s enchanting announcement trailer below:
Here’s an overview of the game’s story and features from NIS:
The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince follows the tale of two lonely hearts brought together through a mutal misunderstanding. In it, you control the wolf, disguised as a princess, who guides the blind prince through a perilous forest in search of the witch capable of restoring his sight. The forest is home to a number of hostile creatures intent on ending your journey prematurely, as well as hazardous traps that put the prince in danger.
Switch between wolf and princess form to dispatch your foes, and guide the prince carefully as a princess to ensure his safety, in search of a fairytale ending.
– Unleash Your Inner Monster – Transform at will from a princess into a wolf to guide the blind prince towards a cure. Weave through the dangerous forest, but be careful… A blind prince has no place in an all-seeing forest.
– Brute Strength Meets Sharp Wit – Various obstacles will require the wolf’s strength, and others will require the princess’s wit. With so many traps and perilous hurdles that await, can the two make it safely to their final destination?
– Lost Pages from a Forgotten Tale – With each delicate petal comes a fragment of memories shared by the wolf and the prince. Collect them along your journey and paint a vivid story of friendship, love, and loss.
I’ve been keeping an eye on this one since it was first announced in Japan, so it’s supremely exciting to have it confirmed for release overseas now! There’s still not a thing about it that I don’t love the look of and that includes the charming Storybook Edition!
The Storybook Edition comes with a “Lullabies for the Blind Prince” soundtrack and “The Little Liar’s Fairy Tale” book, as well as a copy of the game in a beautiful collector’s box, and is available to pre-order from the NIS America online store on PS4 and Switch now.
The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince releases in North America and Europe on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
