Unicorn Overlord Is Only $40 At Amazon And Best Buy


Vanillaware’s stellar new tactical RPG, Unicorn Overlord released on March 8. Fast forward to today, April 8, and you can already pick up the unique game for only $40 at Amazon and Best Buy. This deal is available for all three console platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. Just be aware that Amazon is already experiencing longer wait times for delivery due to the popularity of this deal. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this deal sell out before the end of the week.

Vanillaware is known for creating unique experiences that combine elements from multiple genres. The studio’s previous games include critical hits such as 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Dragon’s Crown, Odin Sphere, and Muramasa: The Demon Sphere.

Unicorn Overlord might have a quirky name, but it’s pulling in rave reviews due to its strong strategy-RPG elements and gorgeous graphics (despite a lackluster narrative). Our Unicorn Overlord review gave it an 8/10 for those exact reasons.

“The visuals in Unicorn Overlord dazzle right from the opening cutscene, with Vanillaware’s well-loved 2D art bringing a detailed fantasy realm to life,” wrote critic Heidi Kemps. “There’s so much satisfaction and gameplay depth here to sink your teeth into that you may find yourself thinking deeply about the game’s team dynamics even when you’re not playing. When the primary feeling a game leaves you with is wanting to play more of it, you know you have a gem on your hands.”

It’s also worth noting that the collector’s edition is back in stock for PS5 and Xbox Series X at Amazon. It clocks in at $130, but it includes tons of goodies such as an art book, music album, DLC voucher, and even an original Unicorn Overlord card game with over 250 cards.

We’re not sure how long this deal will stick around (or how long the collector’s edition will remain in stock), so head over to the retailers soon if you want to cash in on the offers.
