Kong Studios has announced that fans of the Zelda-inspired JRPG Guardian Tales on Nintendo Switch can look forward to more free content to enjoy in November and December.

The retro-looking fantasy-adventure game Guardian Tales is currently free to download and play on the Nintendo Switch. The free aspect of this indie title won’t change as Kong Studios has released a roadmap of new content fans will be able to play soon enough.

While I haven’t gone through every piece of content available (yes, I have been playing it), as of writing this, the game is supposed to offer 100 hours of gameplay. The upcoming updates will introduce new immersive stories and exploration.

According to Publishing Director Changkyu Song, Guardian Tales will remain free-to-play. Not only that but no playable content will be locked behind a DLC paywall. Kong Studios will continue working on the game and keep releasing free content down the line.

Currently, you can experience gameplay until World 7 in Guardian Tales. World 8 is supposed to be released sometime in November. A bunch of short stories and side stories will also be released. An update in November will also bring more Guild Raids.

Here’s the trailer!

The Key Features include:

  • Nostalgic Adventure: The retro-inspired game is all about the classics. You will get to solve puzzles, uncover secrets, fight monsters in dungeons, and take part in the old good vs evil storyline.
  • Base Building: Head to Heavenhold. You can decorate your base of operations with scenery, amusement parks, drink stands, and restaurants.
  • Guilds: Tale part in various events as guild members. There are Raids for ranking, Meteor Excavation for items, and Guild Conquests, where players fight to win as many rewards as possible.
  • Hero and Weapon Collection: There are a 100 different weapons to collect and choose from, with each weapon having unique abilities. There are more than 50 heroes to help create your perfect lineup.

If you’re into a free-to-play JRPG that’s actually fun, I recommend checking out Guardian Tales over at the Nintendo eShop. I like the visuals and the fast-paced gameplay. Things can get chaotic, in a fun way, depending on how many characters appear onscreen together.
