Nicalis Inc. has just confirmed that Code of Princess EX is receiving the finishing touches and will be released both digitally and physically across North America and Europe, this July 31st 2018. It plays like it’s the spiritual successor to Guardian Heroes, a fan-favorite beat ’em up RPG. With its varied cast, pseudo-medieval setting and the combat occurring across three different planes, it takes the best elements from its inspiration. But it also expands on that with HD graphics, strong combos, lock-on, burst attacks and various local and online multiplayer modes.

Code of Princess EX | Gameplay

The game was developed by Studio Saizensen, they are working on the upcoming Blade Strangers, in collaboration with Kinu Nishimura a longtime Street Fighter artist, Tetsuhiko Kikuchi, the director and character designer for Guardian Heroes, and Masaki Ukyo who was the lead programmer for Guardian Heroes. Not only that, but Capcom artist Bengus also contributed to the Code of Princess EX in-game art.


The main storyline in Code of Princess EX focuses on Princess Solange of DeLuxia, who is thrust into the role of guardian and protector of the legendary sword DeLuxcalibur after her family’s castle is overtaken by a siege of rampaging monsters. Venturing out beyond the castle walls, she soon discovers that the monster onslaught has blanketed the entire kingdom with terror and oppression.

As she fights to restore order, Solange selectively recruits a diverse team of powerful and agile combatants in an attempt to bring peace to the land. By the end of their journey, players will have accumulated a cast of over 50 different playable characters, each of whom can be leveled up to enhance their abilities in six different categories.

Code of Princess EX is being published by Nicalis and will be available for Nintendo Switch at a price of $39.99. The retail launch edition will include a full-color instruction manual in addition to a 3-inch CD soundtrack sampler inside the package. Check out the brand new release date trailer down below.
