Ship of Fools to set sail this November on Nintendo Switch

Mark the date: November 22nd is when Ship of Fools, the zany seafaring co-op roguelite developed by Fika Productions, will be released on Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America.

To celebrate the release date announcement, a brand new trailer for the game was shared:

In Ship of Fools, you get to follow the adventures of a group of zany sailors known as The Fools as they set sail in order to thwart the Everlasting Storm and the Aquapocalypse… or at least, attempt to! There’s various islands for you to explore, and no less than 100 unique trinkets to collect.

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

Set among the islands and outcrops of the Archipelago, Ship of Fools follows a group of plucky sailors – The Fools – as they set out across the choppy waters of their watery world, combat creatures from the deep, and attempt to thwart The Everlasting Storm and the Aquapocalypse! Along the way, the Fools will have to work together and master the cannons, repair their ship – Stormstrider – from damage caused by monstrous boarding parties and missile lobbing leviathans, and tread an unlikely path to victory!

Ship of Fools and its cast of characters – each with their own special abilities to help steer the crew to success – will encounter varied roguelite runs through the Archipelago. Each time they start a new voyage they’ll find something new to experience, whether that’s some of the 100+ unique trinkets to find and collect (and to combine as part of a winning strategy) or strange new islands to explore.

  • Bombastic combat – Frantic ship-based combat against colossal leviathans and horrifying creatures from across the deep, dark waters of the Archipelago
  • Frantic co-op experience – Designed from the keel up for co-op play, manage ship repairs in the heat of battle, reload and re-manoeuvre cannons, and use paddles to strike enemies as they board the Stormstrider
  • Endless replayability – Upgrade your crew and unlock items and additional Fools to take on the ever-changing seas, with multiple runs needed to avert the Aquapocalypse.

Ship of Fools (Switch – eShop) comes out on November 22nd in Europe and North America.
