Grab your sword RPG fans, as we finally have details on the Chained Echoes release date. Based on classic RPGs of the SNES era like Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and Secret of Mana, Chained Echoes is a love letter to the 16-bit titles that influenced the genre for decades to come. From publisher Deck13 and developer Matthias Linda, Chained Echoes looks to bring the 90s back with a touch of high-fantasy, dragons, and spellcasting in the mix.

So, when is the Chained Echoes release date? Deck13 released a new trailer over the weekend, revealing that the title will release in *****ber, hinting at a release in the latter half of the year that could be anywhere between September or December. That or I’ve been spelling August wrong for years. Featuring around 40-50 hours of classic turn-based RPG action, we’re excited to get our hands on this one for Nintendo Switch later this year.
