For better or worse, Earthlock largely succeeds in drawing inspiration from late-90s RPGs. The nostalgia is nice, but I’m also reminded of advancements that the genre has made over the past twenty-plus years. With brisker combat and some much-needed voice work, this could be great, but Earthlock is still good as-is for genre fans. How about a physical release?
The visuals of Earthlock are solid, and improved a good deal over the 2016 launch while retaining the same cartoony art style. The care and attention to detail by Snowcastle Games shows in Earthlock. It’s a lovingly crafted world and one that I can’t wait to see from.
An indie adventure with a lush world, fun characters, and enjoyable battles, Earthlock brings the soul of PS1-era JRPGs to the Switch with excellent results. Inconsistent dialogue and notable load times are among its few missteps, but as a package, it captures the appeal of the epoch wonderfully. If you’re looking for a fresh-feeling JRPG that still calls back to the classics, this is a lovely choice.
