The game first launched for Switch in Japan on September 27, followed by PlayStation 4 on October 10. Circle Entertainment has not announced a western release of the PlayStation 4 version.
Here is an overview of the game, via Circle Entertainment:
This new release in the Mercenaries series will offer familiar gameplay but a separate story and worldview from the Mercenaries Saga trilogy recently seen in Mercenaries Saga Chronicles on Nintendo Switch. It is not an orthodox sequel, nor will players need to have played the original trilogy to fully enjoy the game.
A tactical RPG in the finest traditions of the genre, Mercenaries Wings: The False Phoenix requires you to carefully utilize varied units and their abilities. Set Leaders to change the flow of battle, level up your units, change classes, manage equipment and make the key choices that will be the difference between victory and defeat!
This all takes place against the backdrop of a storyline revolving around war, betrayal and magical forces! We’ll reveal more about the story ahead of release.
Watch a short new video below.
