Hack-n-slash action adventure Blades of Time is finding its way onto the Nintendo Switch May 14, 2019.

An upgrade of Gaijin Entertainment’s PC version, Blades of Time features fast-paced combat with swords, firearms, and magic. In the freshly revamped multiplayer mode, players can engage in action-packed MOBA combat leading hordes of NPC monsters against the armies of other players.

The story follows treasure huntress Ayumi sets out on a journey to an ancient island to reach the hidden treasures of a long lost civilization. To fight her way through hordes of monsters and other creatures of magic, she can perform more than 40 unique attacks, utilizing powerful melee combos, firearms, powerful magic and even rewinding time.

With Ayumi’s time-rewind ability, players can bring an almost limitless amount of strategies to the battlefield. After a time rewind, Ayumi’s shadow in time will repeat the last actions of the player, like fighting monsters or luring them away. At the same time, the player can then charge into battle with Ayumi again, using the additional firepower – or detraction – to defeat even the biggest hordes of enemies or the most powerful bosses. Players can have up to five different Ayumis on the field at once.

In multiplayer mode, players can choose their avatar among several heroines and heroes, all featuring different skills and special abilities. Each player then takes charge of an army of NPC monsters, trying to be the first to destroy the enemy’s stronghold.
