Launch Trailer for Children of Zodiarcs

A tactical RPG makes its way to the Switch.

Children of Zodiarcs is a story-driven, tactical RPG set in the fantasy realm of Lumus; a world divided by affluence and poverty.

Check the information below from the eShop below.


Professional thieves on the trail of an ancient relic, the group infiltrates the glittering halls of a corrupt noble’s private chambers in pursuit of their target, narrowly escaping the wrath of the city guards at every turn.

Desperate to find an escape, they seek refuge in the city’s seamy slums and brave the sunless pits of the underworld.

Out to get them are heavily armed city guards, rival gangs and psychotic families of subterranean cannibals.

Abandoned by the system and used by selfish criminals, these young companions will be forced to come to terms with their own reality.

But be warned – in the world of Children of Zodiarcs, no one escapes unscathed!

Combat Cards

Each of your party members’ attacks & abilities is bound to combat cards.

Drawing different cards during battle provides you with ever-changing combat possibilities every time you fight!

Empower Cards through Dice

Once you’ve chosen your attack, physics-based dice allow you to roll for bonuses!

Favoring symbols over numbers, these dice deliver an attack, defense, healing, and special ability modifiers.

Influencing Lady Luck

To add yet more layers of stratagem to Children of Zodiarcs, you can craft dice to favor your play style, and re-roll up to two dice every time you throw.

You need not fear to be at Lady Luck’s mercy!

A World Full of Characters
