You will be able to acquire the physical merchandise from Limited Run Games, as is standard for Idea Factory releases...

Idea Factory today announced its impending Switch release for Dragon Star Varnir has an official date for North America and Europe: August 3, 2021. The game will be available on the Nintendo eShop, or you can acquire it from Limited Run Games if you like the idea of having something to hold in your hands.

Through Limited Run Games, the title is available to preorder right now for $39.99 USD and there is no purchase limit. The digital version is priced at $29.99 USD and will be available to preorder on the eShop starting July 6.

Dragon Star Varnir released on PlayStation 4 a little over two years ago in North America and Europe and received generally favorable reviews from the relatively few outlets that paid it any attention. You probably already know about what to expect in general terms if you've played other games from Compile Heart and Idea Factory, with the provision that this one in particular seems to rank among their better efforts.

Originally, Dragon Star Varnir also featured downloadable content for separate purchase, but today's press release noted that content is all included in the Switch edition and comes on the cartridge if you go the physical route. So this could be the perfect time to pick up another JRPG you might have missed previously. Are you intrigued?
