Dark Deity Confirms Switch Release in 2022

Dark Deity Is Making the Switch to Nintendo


Dark Deity | Switch On a Boat

One pleasant surprise recently was renewing my tactical addiction thanks to Dark Deity. Though it was assuredly inspired by Fire Emblem, it was still creative and entertaining. I enjoyed it on PC, despite some issues.

More than anything, I just wished it was available on a more portable system than a PC. Now that’s finally happening. During Gamescom, publisher Freedom Games announced Dark Deity is coming to Switch in 2022!

Dark Deity is a robust game with retro flair. It features some 30 characters to recruit to your cause. Better yet, you can promote every unit a variety of different ways, and customize their stats to your liking. Bond with them, power up their tools, and grow to love them. That last part is especially easy thanks to some very solid voice acting. Oh and if you hate permadeath, you’ll appreciate the Grave Wounds system. The game is a lot of fun, and there’s a lot of story to be told within.
