Dead Cells coming to PS4, Xbox One and Switch in 2018
Roguelite and metroidvania hybrid Dead Cells is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in 2018, developer Motion Twin announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Roguelite? Metroidvania? Roguevania!
You grew up with the roguelikes, witnessed the rise of the roguelites and even the birth of the roguelite-lites? We’d now like to present for your consideration our RogueVania, the illegitimate child of a modern Roguelite (Rogue Legacy, Binding of Isaac, Enter the Gungeon, Spelunky, etc.) and an old-school Metroidvania (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and its ilk).
- RogueVania: The progressive exploration of an interconnected world, with the replayability of a rogue-lite and the adrenaline pumping threat of permadeath.
- 2D Souls-lite Action: Tough but fair combat, more than fifty weapons and spells with unique gameplay, and of course, the emergency panic roll to get you out of trouble.
- Nonlinear progression: Sewers, Ossuary or Remparts? Once unlocked, special permanent abilities allow you to access new paths to reach your objective. Opt for the path that suits your current build, your play style or just your mood.
- Exploration: Secret rooms, hidden passages, charming landscapes. Take a moment to stroll the towers and breath in that fresh sea mist infused air…
Interconnected levels and progressive unlocking of access to the island provides you with a real incentive to explore your surroundings. Add in a degree of evolution for your character and permanent weapon upgrades and you can see where Dead Cells borrows from the long line of Metroidvanias that precede it.
At the end of the day though, it’s YOUR skills as a player that matter most! Roguelites are about constantly getting better, until what was an insurmountable obstacle becomes a walk in the park. Unforgiving combat wed to the absence of any kind of safety net makes for an adrenalin pumping ride each and every run and unrivaled replayability.
Check out the Trailer:
It’s wonderful news that players across all platforms will get a chance to play this incredibly fun roguevania. It’s still in development, but the chunk that is available to play in Early Access has a lot of depth and runs pretty well. Nintendo Switch is increasingly being known as the prime home console for indie games and Nintendo celebrated this new development with the trailer above on their official channel. Dead Cells is bound to do well across all home consoles, but the pacing of a roguevania like Dead Cells is a snug fit for a mobile console.
