Developer Distillery Games has announced that Death Tales will be making its way to the Switch next month.

The third installment in Luc Bernard’s “Plague Universe” series, Death Tales puts players in control of a reaper-gone-rogue as they venture through a grim-yet-whimsical world in this 2D platformer/RPG hybrid. For more information, you can check out the list of key features below.

  • Over 40 pieces of equipment for you to acquire to customize your Reaper and aid in battle!
  • Find equipment in a variety of well-hidden chests, or use the souls you collect as currency to buy items from the local vendor, Fiona.
  • Mix and match armor and harness the power of the unique skills such as fireballs, the ability to freeze enemies, angel wings allowing you to glide to safety, summon meteors from the sky, and even stampeding unicorns!
  • Join forces with a friend locally. While in local co-op, Player 2 controls Spaura, the Reaper’s Soul Bearer. Online co-op will be coming after launch, players can play as their own customized Reaper.



Heads will start rolling when Death Tales lands on Nintendo Switch on December 3, via the Nintendo eShop. Will you be kicking ass and taking souls when this game comes out? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
