Motion Twin has announced that the Roguevania action-platformer Dead Cells will launch for Nintendo Switch on August 7, 2018 digitally via the Nintendo eShop for $24.99 / €24.99.
Pre-orders are available now on the Nintendo eShop in Europe and on July 18, 2018 in North America with a special 20% pre-order discount for $19.99 / €19.99. Physical versions of Dead Cells are also available to pre-order from Signature Edition Games.
Dead Cells is a Roguevania action-platformer, allowing you to explore a sprawling, ever-changing castle … assuming you’re able to fight your way past its keepers. To finish the game, you’ll have to master fluid, fast-paced combat with the ever-present threat of permadeath looming. No checkpoints. Kill, die, learn, repeat.
At launch, Dead Cells will include:
- 13 Levels – Each one with its own atmosphere, foes and secrets to discover.
- 4 Bosses – Made by the most sadistic of the devs, raised on the salt of the testers.
- 80 or so weapons and skills – Spears, swords, bows, freeze blast, etc.
- 4 special powers, unlocking new areas and paths (metroidvania gear lock items).
