I can count the number of games I’ve played that feature Indian influence with half of one hand. It’s a rarity in the game industry, for whatever reason. So when I first heard about Raji: An Ancient Epic, I was intrigued. Here was a beautiful and cool looking game with lots of mythological Indian flair that reminded me a bit of God of War. But it’s hard to tell what to make of a game from a demo. Which is why today there’s great news – Raji is out today on Nintendo Switch!

Raji | City

I admit when I first heard of the game, I didn’t think it would come to Switch. Sure, Steam made sense, and perhaps Xbox or PS4. So this was a pleasant surprise. I may be narrow minded, but I prefer playing games on my favorite portable console. And though I’m not very familiar with Nodding Heads Games or Super.com, I have high hopes for this adventure.

Currently Raji is slightly discounted on the eShop, though I’m not sure for how long. All I know is that game looks very promising. If you’re not sure what to think, I recommend reading oprainfall’s earlier coverage of Raji above, as well as taking a gander at the trailer below. And stay tuned to oprainfall for more indie game coverage!
