Stranger of Sword City videos showcase player portraits

Students of the Round character portraits also available.

Stranger of Sword City

Experience has released a series of new videos introducing the character portraits available to players during character creation in Stranger of Sword City.

As previously detailed, you can play the game using the classic style character artwork by Yoko Tsukamoto, or with the new style artwork by Oxijiyen. However, when it comes to selecting a player character portrait, all portraits are available regardless of the style selected in the options. You’ll also be able to select a player character portrait from Experience’s other dungeon RPG, Students of Round, which is set in the same world, but in a different timeline.

Stranger of Sword City is due out digitally for Xbox One via publisher Experience on March 22 in North America, and physically and digitally for PS Vita via publisher NIS America on April 26 in North America and April 29 in Europe.

Watch the videos below.

Classic Character Portraits (Yoko Tsukamoto, Raita Kazama)
