NIS America has announced that they’ll be porting The Longest Five Minutes to the Nintendo Switch early next year.
This game will be a port and localization of the PlayStation Vita version that’s already out in Japan. In The Longest Five Minutes, you play as a hero who needs to unlock his memories during the final boss battle with an evil Overlord. To do that, you’ll play out your memories like an 8-bit RPG, remembering signature moves, your hometown, and why he’s trying to defeat the Overlord in the first place.
Here’s more on the story from the press release:
Our hero faces the origin of all evil, the Overlord himself, but suddenly 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. Our hero feels as though he’s letting his allies down…
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!
What can happen in The Longest Five Minutes!?
The Longest Five Minutes will be available in Early 2018.
