Swords & Darkness is a retro-styled, action-RPG for 3DS coming from Arc System Works. The side-scroller has extra elements to it, such as the ability to block with a shield and also perform some chain moves. Players will be able to level up, change equipment and and learn news moves, much like a typical RPG. Sword & Darkness will be released through the eShop in Japan this winter. A video is below.
