City of Brass

Yesterday, Uppercut Games announced that they are bringing City of Brass (an Arabian Nights-inspired first-person rogue-lite adventure) to the Nintendo Switch. It will be released on February 8th worldwide, and will be playable in the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Polish, Russian, Turkish, Japanese, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional).

The Nintendo Switch version features three unlockable characters: the fast but frail knife-fighting Brigand, the spear-throwing Soldier, and the strong but slow Hellion genie. It also features a “myriad of enhancements” made to the game since its initial launch, including new relics, weapons, enemies, as well as various quality of life improvements.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:

Enter the legendary City of Brass and plunder the fabled treasures within its accursed walls. Armed with a bullwhip and blades, embark on a grand heist, lashing and slashing through the legions of lost souls who guard over the vast riches that adorn this treacherous town.
City of Brass revolves around the rhythmic interplay between melee combat and movement, as the protagonist’s whip can be used both in and out of battle in a variety of ways. It can disarm foes, trip and stun them, and open defensive opportunities that can be exploited by other weapons. The whip can also be used to grab faraway objects and swing to safety, or manipulate booby traps littered throughout the mythical metropolis, turning the environment on its unwitting denizens.
With procedurally-generated environments that see the labyrinthine streets shift on every run, City of Brass urges players to put their newfound knowledge from every playthrough to the test. But the challenge can also be tailored to every individual with the Blessings & Burdens system, which provides a wealth of modifiers to adjust the difficulty and game feel with optional modifiers to various game systems, including player health, damage output, item cost, and more.
