Team17 has announced that it’ll be bringing Crown Trick, an upcoming RPG roguelike, to Nintendo Switch later this year.
Said to be “steeped in strategic, synchronous, turn-based gameplay”, Crown Trick has been developed by Tencent Games’ NExT Studios. It’s set in a procedurally generated maze-like dungeon where enemy decisions and actions are only revealed when players make their moves and features hundreds of weapons, skills, and items to mix things up in combat.
Here’s a feature list to teach you a little more:
Crown Trick key features:
• Engaging strategic gameplay: Monsters and traps move only when the player moves; carefully thought out strategies are key to escaping the labyrinthine dungeon
• Fight how you want: Create and develop a unique combat style with dozens of active and passive skills and abilities, items, and relics help create different ways to cut through enemy encounters
• Learn from enemies: Gather elite ‘Familiar’ skills by overcoming enemies, ready to unleash on others deeper in the dungeon
• Different dungeons every time: The procedurally generated maze ensures players have unique experiences every time they enter the Nightmare Realm.
Max Everingham, Head of Publishing at Team17, has described the game as “roguelike royalty”, calling it “a beautifully realised and unique experience thanks to its mix of gameplay features”. No specific release date has been set, but we’re told to expect it to arrive in Q3 2020.
