Sword of the Necromancer
JanduSoft have announed their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Sword of the Necromancer, a dungeon-crawler action RPG developed by Grimorio of Games. Its Kickstarter campaign will go live on April 8th (click here).
Here’s a trailer, some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:
Help Tama to save Koko using the powers of the forbidden Sword of the Necromancer. Turn your foes into allies and reach the depths of the Necromancer’s dungeon. Defeat the guardians to gain enough soul power to bring Koko back from the dead, no matter the cost. What would you do to bring back someone you love?
Sword of the Necromancer is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with Rogue-like elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you. Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon’s depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead. Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective.
Sword of the Necromancer is inspired by Rogue-like games like Enter the Gungeon, 2D Zelda games like A Link to the Past and monster-catching mechanics like those from Azure Dreams. The aim is to create a fluid battle system, with head-to-head combat as its main focus while leaning on monster summons for special actions and attacks.
- Turn your foes into allies
- Gather weapons and relics
- More than 15 weapon types to use with the fluid head-to-head battle system.
- Enhance your character and summoned monsters
- Death is not the end: each try brings you closer to the Necromancer
- Discover Tama and Koko’s past as you advance through the dungeon
- Local co-op play
Sword of the Necromancer (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
