Heartstrings Studios brings “Witch” to Tokyo Game Show
We could not be more excited to announce that we’ve been invited to showcase our game at one of the largest gaming expos in the world, Tokyo Game Show! We applied for one of their indie showcase booths and were selected to bring “Witch” out to display and demo. To put it bluntly, this may be the biggest opportunity we’ve had to date.
Every member of our team grew up on and loves the JRPG genre, so to take our own indie JRPG to the land where so much of our inspirations and beloved memories comes from is as thrilling as it is terrifying. It’s also all but made the decision for us on if we will be releasing internationally, and we’ve already begun talks about localization. The demo will be offering both a Japanese and English version to allow for players to enjoy either.
We will be there from Sept 12-15th with a special localized demo. In honor of this, we will be selling specialized merchandise with the Japanese logo. The logo literally translates to Uitchi, the Japanese phonetic for the word “witch”. Check back for updated shop information soon.
I am unbelievably proud of all of our staff at Heartstrings Studios that we got to this point. Thank you all for all your hard work, and thank you to all the fans for supporting us on our incredible journey!
