NIS America has announced that its upcoming JRPG The Longest Five Minutes will release in early 2018 for Nintendo Switch, PC and PS Vita. Along with the release date, we also got a brand new trailer and some screenshots.
The Longest Five Minutes will take you inside the mind of a hero during his final encounter with an epic and evil Overlord. Suddenly he loses all memories of his adventure. His finishing moves, the name of his hometown, and even the reason he’s trying to defeat the Overlord in the first place, all gone.
In the midst of battle, his allies’ words and the Overlord’s taunting triggers flashbacks, bringing his memories back piece by piece. Our hero tries to regain his priceless memories before it’s too late, but the Overlord stands before him, his power unyielding. Each memory plays out in classic 8-bit RPG style, and the outcome of those memories affect your party in their final battle.
A Limited Edition for the Nintendo Switch version is currently available to pre-order on the NIS America Online Store. Available for $54.99, this edition includes a copy of the game, two-disc soundtrack with art booklet, four lapel pin set, and a collector’s box.
