Another Fire Emblem-like tactical game is heading to the Nintendo Switch. The Dark Deity Switch port release date has been set. Folks will be able to go through it on the go starting on March 17, 2022.
Like Fire Emblem, Dark Deity is a grid-based strategy game. As you send units into fights, they level up. Eventually, you can even change characters’ specialties. Relationships can form as they fight alongside each other. Also, rather than permadeath, characters who fall in a fight take on Grave Wounds that reduce their stats going forward.
When Dark Deity comes to the Switch, it might look and feel different. This is due to some adjustments and rebalancing done between the PC and console release. The 28 maps ended up getting new art. Its equipment and abilities also ended up being adjusted.
There’s also a new Dark Deity release date trailer. The video shows what its story segments, maps, and battle segments all look like. It also shows the relationship-building elements. At the 45 second mark, it starts going over the remastered maps. Also, while the trailer is entirely in English, the game also will include Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish language options.
Dark Deity will come to the Nintendo Switch on March 17, 2022. It will cost $24.99, the same price as the immediately available PC version.
