Sword of Convallaria promises a lot, but we'd be lying if we said we want it all to be true. The JRPG genre, as maligned as it was for a period of time, is unique in terms of depth, and the visual style that Sword of Convallaria offers reminds us of the visually stunning Octopath Traveller in all the best ways.

You can find Sword of Convallaria on a storefront near you, come July 31st for Android and iOS!
