Earthlock is a very interesting game in the sense it is a western made JRPG. It takes many Western sensibilities and makes them into a very good JRPG that is fun to play and sits right alongside the likes of Lost Sphear and I am Setsuna as a shining example of the genre on the Switch.
Originally release as Earthlock: Festival Of Magic on Steam and Wii U this is a vastly updated version that the developers have made as a tribute to JRPGs of yesteryear.
