Ancestors Legacy

Destructive Creations have announced that they are brining Ancestors Legacy to the Nintendo Switch on June 11th, with a retail release following later this year.

Here’s some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots for the game:

Ancestors Legacy is a history-inspired, real-time strategy game influenced by historical events in the Middle Ages. The game combines resource management and base-building with large-scale, squad-based battles across vast battlefields. Experience medieval bloodshed like never before thanks to the cinematic action camera that puts you right in the middle of the battle at the press of a button.

Take command of your army as you storm through medieval Europe in an extensive series of campaigns. Choosing one of the four available nations – Viking, Anglo-Saxon, German, or Slav – you will be tasked with more than just conquering, raiding, and pillaging enemy camps, villages, and towns. Only by utilizing the full range of available tactical options, taking strategic advantage of the environment, and managing your temporary bases and settlements will you emerge victorious.

Warriors must be strong and smart, skilled in analyzing the situation and predicting the enemy’s moves. They also must be able to move fast, not be bound to one spot. And that is what Ancestors Legacy will now offer, thanks to its release on Nintendo Switch – the ability to engage the enemy virtually anywhere and enjoy those 40 story missions and skirmish battles on the go.

Destructive Creations is looking forward to seeing gamers enjoy the medieval harsh battles of Ancestors Legacy also away from home. Ancestors Legacy will not let strategy fans down in terms of content, quality and accessibility via the controller, the use of which has been prepared and tested for right from the very beginning. Streamlined gameplay mechanics, on par with its original PC counterpart, user interface and control mappings are well optimized to bring a great gaming experience to console platforms, on top of which touch screen support has been added for Switch users.

Despite some hardware limitations, Ancestors Legacy still features the same refined gameplay experience, boosted by cinematic action-camera and over 600 single combat animations, all motion captured and each with a unique, precise usage in the game. The animations correctly correspond not only to the unit type and weapon it is carrying, but also to the opponent the unit is fighting, his own weapon, and the state of both units.

  • Precise controls with native controller support (optional touch screen controls);
  • Four playable nations in an extensive single-player campaign inspired by historical events;
  • Various modes of intense skirmish battles;
  • Advanced tactical options combining the use of terrain, experience, and morale;
  • Cinematic battle camera view that puts you right in the center of the action;
  • Streamlined resource management and village construction.

Ancestors Legacy (Switch) comes out on the Nintendo eShop on June 11th in Europe and North America, and this year at retail in Europe and North America.
