Initially released in its native Japan in April where it hit #2 on the App Store* and #1 in the RPG category*, the global release of the game allows audiences from all around the world to experience the magical world of Egglia in English. EGGLIA: Legend of the Redcap can be purchased for $9.99 USD, €10.99 EUR, £9.99 GBP, available in North America, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, Europe, Southeast Asia and beyond.
In celebration of today’s launch, the game’s creators shared a beautiful new trailer featuring the first full quest from EGGLIA: Legend of the Redcap, introducing players to world and the game’s protagonist, Chabo. The quest, which serves as a tutorial, begins with Chabo hatching an egg to revive the land trapped within, then learning the basic mechanics such as the turn-based movement system, resource gathering and combat. We also meet some of the colorful inhabitants of Egglia and get a glimpse of the adventure to follow.
Players will explore the land of Egglia as a gentle boy elf, Chabo, who must navigate the world via a turn-based RPG system while hunting monsters for experience and gathering resources on a hexagonal grid, using a turn-based dice combat system. Players will uncover a series of mythical eggs that can be hatched to unlock different lands of the world of Egglia to explore and gather materials to grow their village – in doing so, players will evolve a variety of spirit companions that will assist in future battles.
In Chabo’s adventure through Egglia, a host of companions will be met throughout the journey and players will be able to build homes and grow a village for them. These homes can be upgraded and furnished with numerous fun decorations allowing players to customize and decorate as desired.
EGGLIA: Legend of the Redcap delivers a memorable experience set in a new yet familiar setting. Players will find themselves instantly captivated with the beautiful world and amazing story that could only be told by the veteran team comprised of Shinichi Kameoka, Head Producer, Character Designer and President, CEO of Brownies Inc.; Michio Okamiya, Head of POWERCHORD STUDIO; and Yoko Shimomura, Composer.
