Did the Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase feel a little brief or lacking to you? Well, Japan’s version of the presentation showed a lot more promising titles. Specifically, it featured Reynatis, a “juvenile” action RPG developed by FuRyu and Natsume Atari. It’s coming out in Japan on July 15th for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.

Reynatis takes place in the heart of Tokyo’s Shibuya district, as the trailer shows. Players can step in the shoes of protagonists Sari and Marin, who battle with one another as the plot develops. Also worth mentioning: Yoko Shimomura, who’s slated to receive a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards, is listed as the game’s composer on the official website
