Omensight drops you immediately into the heart of a vicious war, in a game that is in equal parts cute and macabre. You have a lot of freedom to play the game however best suits you, including adjusting the difficulty settings of both the fighting and the investigation. It is decently challenging and has some lovely scenery to explore.
Even with its flaws, Omensight: Definitive Edition is a perfect hidden gem you’ll find on the eShop. If you’re looking to immerse yourself in a fantastic story coupled with a sublime art style and music—and a few odd design choices—I’d absolutely recommend giving this one a go. With reports of devs patching the game to remove some of the previously mentioned issues, there’s no reason for you to not have this game on your Switch.
The combat is a tad too simple to be truly exciting, and it’s not exactly an easy story to follow due to the haphazard nature of the Groundhog Day time-looping, but it’s a compelling adventure in a world that Spearhead seem to genuinely care about – and that care shines through. If you’re partial to a bit of hack ‘n’ slashing and fancy something a little different to the norm, you’ll find Omensight to be an enjoyable addition to the Switch’s catalogue of ports.
