Switchaboo Pick of the Week

With what seems like something for everyone this week, it’s difficult to narrow it down because it can really come down to personal preference. But week in week out, we have to have a Pick of the Week, and it is…


Drum roll, please…

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs – Royal Edition!

We at Switchaboo didn’t actually know about Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs until this week, but we’re surprised that it hasn’t had more attention from fans.

Regalia: of Men and Monarchs is a turn based strategy RPG that looks very similar to titles such as Fire Emblem and Disgaea. With great reviews and amazing art, Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs seems like a no-brainer to any fan of the genre.
