The upcoming side-scrolling tower defense game Duel Princess has a new English trailer available ahead of its Jan 13, 2022 launch on the Nintendo Switch, which you can watch above. The game incorporates rogue-like elements that allow players to build new decks each time they play through the story mode to create entirely new experiences for each of the 10 princesses. Guide your character across multiple grids and take on monsters, hit up shops, or break camp to check out your loot and mess with your stats, all in an attempt to defeat the princess waiting for you at the end. Make use of the cards dropped from enemies to create unique decks from an assortment of 50 unit types, and make use of your abilities in battle to force your way to the princess’ castle. “Punish” each princess in order to retrieve her crest so you can to seal away the Great Demon King threatening the realm.
From the game’s website:
It was once a vast world.
That is, until the three demon kings who appeared on each continent closed the world off continent by continent.
And in a world bereft of its once vast lands, many were forced to live in fear of the threat of the demon kings…
Hundreds of years have passed since then, until finally, a turning point has come.
On a particular continent, two princesses suddenly appear alongside a hero. Together, the three were able to defeat one of the demon kings.
At the same time, the two remaining continents also saw the demon kings defeated as a result of the efforts of the princesses who stood against them.
The world, now freed from their rule, finally regained its vast lands…
And so, it seems peace would finally return, however…
What little glimmer of hope existed was quickly shattered by the resurrection of the Great Demon King.
Thus, the hero and the ten princesses now face a new threat that surpasses even the three demon kings.
As if in response to the resurrection of the Great Demon King, mysterious crests start appearing on the princess’ bodies.
Aware of the fact that the Great Demon King cannot be sealed again without all crests in one place, the girls gather.
The meeting, however, proved confusing for all parties.
Each princess had her own agenda, and no consensus were reached…
And so, with the fate of the world at stake, the battle of the princesses were set in motion.
Duel Princess releases on Jan 13, 2022 on the Nintendo Switch, and retails at $24.99 USD.
