Get a head-start on launch.

March 8 is not far off now. But for those a little too impatient for then, a small slice of Unicorn Overlord is on the way for Switch owners today through a demo, to tide you over until then.

Announced during today’s Nintendo Direct: Partner Showcase, Vanillaware’s Unicorn Overlord is getting a demo for Nintendo Switch today. [Update: Originally posted with just a Switch listing, Atlus has confirmed that the Unicorn Overlord demo will also be available on PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S starting on Thursday, February 22. We’ve updated the piece to reflect as much.]

You can find the listing, with the demo live now, here on the eShop.

Good news for those looking to hop in early, too: save data carries over into the full game. It’s a nice feature for those who don’t want to lose their potential progress if they wind up deciding to play the full game.

Don’t lord it over me

It’s nice, at least, to see a demo out for this, and with save data carrying over too. It feels like we’ve seen a lot more of these over recent years, and for big RPGs, it’s an especially nice feature. A good way to dip your toe in without committing the full way.

And there looks to be quite a bit to commit to in Unicorn Overlord. The latest game from 13 Sentinels and Dragon’s Crown studio Vanillaware sees the team tackling tactics, with battles reminiscent of both Ogre Battle and Final Fantasy XII‘s Gambit system, somehow.

It could be a big game to dig into, so having a little time to check it out now amongst a slew of other demos and games hitting the Switch is nice. If you end up digging it, the full game of Unicorn Overlord arrives on March 8, 2024 for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Switch.
