Dreadbit and Ripstone Publishing have announced that Ironcast will be coming to Nintendo Switch on August 10, 2017. It will be available as a digital download title for $12.99 / £12.99 / €14.99 including all available Commanders and Mechs.
Ironcast is a turn-based strategy game set in an alternative Victorian history; where refined men and women command gigantic mechanised war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire. As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall walking Ironcast to defend 1880’s Victorian England from an invading force of enemy Ironcast.
Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast‘s various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely; either offensively to cripple and destroy opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapon fire is due.
The roguelite style of Ironcast enforces that death is permanent, but rewards are persistent and no two campaigns are the same. With randomly generated missions, over 50 unlockable items and the potential for rare enemy loot drops, commanders will face a new crusade with every play through.
The Nintendo Switch version lets you play on the big screen with the console docked, in tabletop mode with the Pro Controller, and on the go in handheld mode using either the Joy-Con controllers or by taking advantage of full touch screen functionality. Ironcast also supports the Switch’s HD rumble feature.
