Toro and Friends: Onsen Town() from ForwardWorks debuted last year in Japan. It is now getting an international release in over 100 countries thanks to PiG Corporation. This will make Toro and Friends: Onsen Town the first ForwardWorks developed game to get released in the West. ForwardWorks has not had the best track record in Japan with how Disgaea RPG has been there. Toro and Friends: Onsen Town is a match three puzzler featuring Toro from Sony. Toro has appeared in many games on PlayStation platforms but isn’t even remotely as popular outside Japan so this localisation announcement is even more surprising. Check out a screenshot from the game below:
Toro and Friends: Onsen Town is a story driven puzzler and it features Toro, Sora, Kuro, and more. It features a social component allowing you to send and receive hearts that can be used to complete puzzles. If you’re interested in checking Toro and Friends: Onsen Town out, you can pre-order it on the App Store for iOS here and Google Play for Android here. Check out the official website for it here. Out of all the games from ForwardWorks, this is not the one I expected to be localised. Hopefully the others also make their way over.
