When thinking of extremely cool indie games, Darkest Dungeon is one of the first ones to come to mind. The game is already available on PS4, PS Vita, PC, Mac and, as of lately, iOS. However, Red Hook Studios has teased that the game will be coming to Nintendo Switch, hopefully, mid-January.
The “reveal” came through a tweet in Red Hook Studios official Twitter, as a response to a fan’s question on whether or not we’ll be able to see Darkest Dungeon on Nintendo Switch. The devs answered that it will be available “hopefully mid-Jan” after announcing that they updated their blog on that matter.
Their blog post reads:
While we don’t have a solid release window just yet, we do want to share that all currently available DLC (The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker) will be available at release on Switch.
We are hard at work getting the Switch version of the game prepped for submission to Nintendo for their certification process. Once we get a build in the certification process we will have a solid idea of our possible release schedule. That being said, we are hoping for sometime early in the new year if all goes well.
In related news, Darkest Dungeon will get a new DLC in the near future, bringing more Lovecraftian action to this, already amazing, indie title. Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness DLC will include:
- A New Quest Type: Get lost in time and space as you confront unending waves of enemies, new and old, pushing ever closer to the crash site of the Comet. Survive as long as you can stomach, and compare your highest kill count with friends and rivals alike!
- A New Enemy Faction: The husks of the Miller and his farmhands roam the area around the windmill, spreading the all-consuming influence of the Comet’s light.
- Powerful New Trinkets: Visit the Nomad Wagon and spend Comet Shards to purchase trinkets with new and powerful functionality.
Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness DLC is set for a spring release, and pricing information will follow in the new year.
