Silent Hope Story and Mechanics
According to the trailer released for Silent Hope during the June 2023 Nintendo Direct, Silent Hope takes place in Kingdom where the ruler has stolen words from the world.

Players will have access to the Wanderer, Warrior, Rogue, Archer, Farmer, Fighter, and Caster. Each offers a set of abilities to use both in and out of combat.
