EB Games jumps the gun on Aragami for Switch

by Oliver BrandtSeptember 8, 2017

Update: EB Games has removed the listing for Aragami on Switch, but luckily we had the foresight to archive the page, which you can view by clicking here. Original story follows.

Well this is a bit peculiar. Those perusing the EB Games website today might have noticed a game that hasn’t been announced through any other source — Aragami for the Nintendo Switch. Aragami was initially released last year for PC and PS4, and there wasn’t any indication before now that it might come to Switch.

This isn’t the first time EB Games has jumped the gun; earlier this year they listed This is the Police for Switch before it was officially announced by THQ Nordic. Coupled with the fact that the Switch version of Aragami has a pretty legit-looking box art on the site, it’s safe to assume that this isn’t just a clerical error. The game is listed for an October 2017 release at a price of $79.95, though that could just be a placeholder price. In any case, if the October release is true, we can’t imagine it’ll be long before an official announcement is made.

You can view the game’s description and trailer below, or click here to view the listing on EB Games’ website.

Aragami is a third person stealth game that casts you as an undead assassin with the power to control the shadows. Teleport to any shadow, become invisible, materialize weapons or even summon a shadow dragon to infiltrate the enemy ranks and dispose of your targets.

  • EMBRACE THE SHADOWS: Create your own shadows to become invisible. Teleport from shadow to shadow while you hunt down your targets. Use a wide array of Shadow Powers to creatively dispatch your enemies.
  • CHOOSE YOUR PLAYSTYLE: Multiple paths to beat each scenario and approach every situation. Play as a merciless emissary of death or an undetectable ghost. Your story, your choices.
  • PIECE BACK YOUR PAST: Fight Kaiho, the army of Light, and rescue Yamiko – a mysterious girl that brought you back to life and is the key to uncovering your past.

You are Aragami, an undead warrior with the power to control the shadows. You’ve been summoned back to the world of the living by Yamiko, a girl imprisoned in the city fortress of Kyuryu. Embark in a dark journey full of blood and secrets to recover the broken fragments of your memories. Infiltrate the occupied city of Kyuryu with your supernatural powers and fight light with shadows. Uncover a story about twin souls bound together by destiny that surpasses time and memories.
