Maglam Lord is a sword crafting, marriage hunting Action JRPG, coming to PS4 and Switch this Winter in Japan. Additional details coming soon via Famitsu.
D3 Publisher, after a countdown teaser, officially announced Maglam Lord for PS4 and Switch, coming in Japan this Winter. An official site and Twitter page were opened as well. Here’s everything revealed on the game.
Maglam Lord is officially described as a “magic sword creation Action RPG”. The official site reads: “The protagonist is the most evil of all demon lords, the Maglam Lord. But after waking up from a long slumber, it turns out they’re now an endangered species?! To make their comeback, they decide to craft new magic swords and fight together with their comrades. To avoid extinction, they even start marriage hunting among their friends, and might even hook up with a hero? A brand new Action RPG starts now.”
Maglam Lord will be a single player game. Players will be able to pick between the female or male protagonist when starting a new game. Famitsu described it as hack n slash gameplay, defeating monsters to collect materials and create better swords.
Some of the characters in Maglam Lord:
The protagonist. Sword Demon Lord Killrizark. A demon lord that would defeat anyone daring to bother it, be it gods or devils. They were considered a threat to the world, and were subjugated. That’s how they fell in a long sleep, to recover their strength. Now, they’re an endangered species, but don’t plan on staying put and will keep fighting anyone who stands in their path. The male version is voiced by Ryuichi Kijima, and the female version is Akari Kito. Her mainstream-est role is Nezuko in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer).
Satius, a faithful servant who kept preparing for the return of the Sword Demon Lord. Satius is talented in martial arts, but she’s also proficient in magic and a very knowledgeable person. She takes care of the protagonist, who’s always doing whatever they please. She supports them but sometimes rebuke them and is always there for them. As if being dissatisfied she can’t do more for her master, she can be heard sighing a lot. Satius is voiced by Atsumi Tanezaki, who most notably voiced Iori Fuyusaka in 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.
Famitsu revealed this artwork and teased more characters with these screenshots. Additional information will be available in this week’s Famitsu magazine.
