Cosmic Star Heroine Likely Coming to Nintendo Switch, Creator Says

Cosmic Star Heroine Likely Coming to Nintendo Switch, Creator Says

We can be heroes on the Switch, hopefully.

2017 was an epic year for RPGs, so there's a chance you might've missed out on Zeboyd Games' Cosmic Star Heroine when it dropped last April.

Luckily for you, the world is occasionally merciful about handing out second chances. And your second chance to play Robert Boyd's lovable retro-style RPG may come to you on the Nintendo Switch.

"Roll for initiative, meatsacks."

Nothing's confirmed yet, but Boyd reached out to USgamer earlier today with some hopeful news. "A contractor contacted us about doing a port [of Cosmic Star Heroine] and publishing on the Switch," he says, "and their terms were quite favorable. Nothing signed yet, but I'm optimistic."

Well, that's cosmic-tacular (sorry)! Don't forget, Kat and I started a Cosmic Star Heroine RPG report on Axe of the Blood God just last week. Listen in as we talk about the earliest parts of the game's story, its character introductions, its unique battle system, its cool art style, and much more.
