As announced by NIS America, action RPG/strategy game The Princess Guide is coming to North American PS4 and Switch consoles on March 26th, 2019. Europeans will be able to grab the stylish princess-teaching simulation on March 29th, and our ANZ friends can pick it up on April 5th. NIS America is also offering a limited edition that comes with a copy of the soundtrack, a poster featuring the four titular princesses, an art book, and playing cards. You can guide your princess of choice into an era of peace starting on March 26th next year.

The NIS-developed action RPG strikes a similar tone to other recent releases. Set in the lands of the Relic Islands, four kingdoms have asked for your help in raising their princesses to be fit to be queens. Four unique princesses from four disparate kingdoms find themselves recruited to fight off the tides of evil sweeping across the islands. With a combination of indirect and direct control, you will need to push back the monsters and their commanders using the princess's skillset. Choosing from the vengeful Veronica, the gluttonous Lilliartie, the good-natured Monomaria, or the dragon princess Alpana? In both battle and conversations, players can "Praise" or "Scold" the princesses, directing their development as they see fit. Even though you initially choose one princess to train, you can eventually train all four girls.

Originally revealed in Japan as Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, the release date reveal comes several months after NIS America initially announced the localization. Released to middling reviews in the EastThe Princess Guide still hopes to captivate audiences with its flashy combat and sharp visual style. Hopefully, NIS America can find a more receptive audience stateside. You can begin your training regimen when The Princess Guide releases for the PS4 and Switch in the West starting in late March.

What do you think of The Princess Guide? Are you looking forward to letting them do as they please, or control the scene from behind?
