Today NIS America released a new trailer of the upcoming game Lapis x Labyrinth, also announcing the release dates for both North America and Europe.
The game will hit the western shelves on May 28 in North America and on May 31 in Europe, for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
The game by Nippon Ichi Software is known in Japan as Lapis Re Abyss, and it’s an action RPG with a whimsical and cute art style which is pretty much a staple of the titles by the prolific developer from Gifu prefecture in Japan. The western release was announced just a month ago with another trailer. The Japanese release happened in November still for PS4 and Switch.
