Today, Nintendo streamed a special Nintendo Direct presentation entirely dedicated to Culdcept Revolt, the first brand new entry in 10 years for the Culdcept series. If you missed the livestream, no problem: the full presentation is now available on YouTube! And that’s not all: it was also announced that a second Culdcept Revolt Direct would be streamed next month, but the exact date and time will be announced at a later date.
Release date and demo
During the Culdcept Revolt Direct, it was announced that the game would be released on July 7th in Japan, where it will cost 5 076 Yen. There will be no special edition, and it doesn’t look like the game is compatible with any amiibo (figures or cards).
And right after the Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo released a special demo, called Culdcept Revolt: Start Dash Ver.. Thanks to it, players can get a taste of the game with a few early quests, and even play online. Talking of online, there will be a special event on May 21st, from 3PM to 9PM JST (click here for more details). Players will also be able to transfer their game (including the cards they collected) to the full version.
There’s two ways to get this demo:
- pre-load the game from the Nintendo eShop or Nintendo’s website. You should then get the download code for the demo via email;
- use 500 Platinum Coins on My Nintendo (click here), until July 7th (12AM JST) (Our My Nintendo Rewards page has been updated!)
Head after the break for the rest of this post!
