SteamWorld Quest Announced, Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year
Grind your gears.
During an indie showcase, Nintendo debuted a new game from Image & Form coming first to Nintendo Switch. SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is a card-RPG hybrid set to hit this year, first on Switch and then on other unannounced platforms.
The brief look at gameplay shows a traditional RPG battle interface, but with cards lining the bottom to serve as attacks. A treasure chest gives off loads of loot in the form of cards, and a closer look shows names like Intimidating Shout, Hot Iron, and Kilovolt. The announcement boasts a selection of more than 100 cards and the series' wacky humor.
The look of the game is obviously inspired by fantasy tropes, including armored knights, swords, and even a mechanized dragon. Image & Form noted that a fantasy RPG has been among its top requests from fans. The SteamWorld series has become known for applying its steampunk aesthetic to different settings and genres. So far it's explored an Old West motif in the two SteamWorld Dig games and SteamWorld Tower Defense, and a sci-fi space setting in SteamWorld Heist. This adds a third genre to the series' flexible rotation.
The latest in the series is SteamWorld Dig 2, an action-platformer with shades of the classic Dig Dug. Like in the first game, you ventured further underground finding valuable loot for upgrades, while unlocking mysteries of a high-tech civilization.
"Dig 2 manages to not only be an exceptional successor, but a great adventure in its own right," critic Matt Espineli wrote in GameSpot's review. "Where the first game was a diamond in the rough, Dig 2 is a polished jewel."
