Freedom Games announced that the Sword and Axe-developed tactical RPG Dark Deity will come to Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2022.
The Switch version will include an update that improves the in-game shadowing and 28 battlefield maps. In addition, further gameplay has been enhanced as the team rebalanced over 320 weapons, spells, and skills.
Last summer, dark Deity was previously released on PC-via Steam, but many requested the game be brought to Switch. The tactical RPG elements seem like a good fit for the console hybrid as players can take the long-form battles on the go with them.
Dark Deity features a cast of 30 characters who can each take on abilities from across 30 unlockable classes. The game also features three difficulty settings with randomizers and a new system that reimagines “perma-death” mechanics called Grave Wounds.
Instead of permanently removing units from the party, the Grave Wounds system gives units permanent stat penalties when their health reaches zero to emulate physical injuries or mental scars. Units will adapt to their wounds and discover new tactics to achieve victory.
