The gameplay seems typical of any other ARPG. However, there are some more unique mechanics which will separate this from the genre. A certain mechanic called The Claw plays on historical bloodletting and can stop enemy health regeneration.

Switch release date

Thymesia will be released onto the Nintendo Switch cloud gaming on its official release date. This is August 18 2022!

However, the game is a little different in that it will only be available on Nintendo's streaming service. This lets players play games through streaming which lowers the CPU usage. Overall, it leaves a very happy customer and Nintendo Switch.
