Taiwan goes anime

The Dusk Diver release date has been announced by JFI Games and JERA in a press release. Additionally, the publisher has announced Dusk Diver Day One Edition, a special physical edition of the game with some pretty neat goodies in store.

Dusk Diver Release Date

The Dusk Diver release date has finally been decided. After several months on Steam Early Access, the developers feel that they've got things just right and you'll be able to get your hands on this game pretty soon. It won't be a global release, however, and it largely depends on your platform and location.

 
  • Steam (Worldwide): October 24, 2019
  • PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch (Europe): October 25, 2019
  • PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch (North America): October 29, 2019

If you haven't yet heard of Dusk Diver, it's a pretty neat brawler game set on the streets of Taipei, Taiwan. This isn't just a fantastical recreation of Taiwan's capital city, mind; the developers have painstakingly recreated many of the iconic locations in the game's signature anime style.

Throughout the course of the game, you'll take the ordinary girl Yumo out into the world to fight evil Phantoms that have awakened powers in her. She'll be helped along by several other Guardians, each with their own distinct style and personality. They'll be able to help you out at the push of a button in battle, but use them wisely — not every Guardian is good for every situation!

 

With the Dusk Diver release date all set, one might wonder if they're going to have some kind of special edition. In short: yes.

Dusk Diver Day One Edition

The Dusk Diver Day One Edition (seen above) will give Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 players the game housed in a special Day One Edition box. This package will also include a beautiful art book and seven badges representing the good guys of the game.

What isn't exactly clear is the price for the United States on this edition as American listings haven't gone up yet. UK retailer ShopTo has it at an MSRP of £34.99 and 365Games has it at £44.99, putting its US price somewhere in the range of $43–$55.

For now, you can add Dusk Diver to your wishlist on Steam or pick it up right now in Steam Early Access at a price of $24.99 or your regional equivalent. Dusk Diver launches on Steam worldwide on October 24, 2019, with the PS4 and Switch releases launching in Europe on October 25 and October 29 in North America. You can also check out the Gameplay Trailer below.
