SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech will hit Nintendo Switch next month.
Announced by developer Image & Form, SteamWorld Quest will be available exclusively through the Nintendo eShop starting April 25. This RPG with card-based mechanics will cost $25/€25/£22.5, and will remain exclusive to Nintendo Switch for “the foreseeable future.” A release date announcement video with extra gameplay footage can be seen below.
“The SteamWorld community has asked us to make an RPG for a long time, so I’m really happy and satisfied that we’re delivering such a polished title way sooner than anyone expected,” said Image & Form CEO Brjánn Sigurgeirsson. “Since we announced in January we’ve watched the growing excitement among gamers, press and content creators. I’m confident that fans of RPGs and previous SteamWorld games will adore SteamWorld Quest because it’s an absolute gem.”
SteamWorld Quest lets players lead a party of aspiring heroes who “take on whatever threat comes their way by crafting your own deck of cards – choosing from over 100 unique punch-cards!”
