Watcher Chronicles Screen

It has been announced that Watcher Chronicles will be coming to the Switch on April 28. Originally released onto Steam, the game will feature local co-op. You can take a look at the game’s press release below.


Indie studio Third Sphere Game Studios announces today that their 2D souls-like action-RPG Watcher Chronicles is making its way to the Nintendo Switch on April 28th for $19.99 / €19,99. The game blends the characteristic souls-like fast skill-based combat with RPG elements, and will also feature a local co-op multiplayer mode to play with a friend. Watcher Chronicles was released first on Steam on January 19th; critics and players have praised the game for its challenging combat and gameplay, and its hand-drawn 2D art style.

In the darkest depths of Purgatory, forces of evil have allied to turn this intermediate state into a new Hell, punishing all the lost souls that wander there in search of expiatory purification. Our brave hero will have to battle his way through this wretched abyss, fighting against hordes of nightmarish enemies and more than 20 merciless bosses to prevent them from carrying out their malicious plan. Death is a hero’s destiny: prepare to die… a lot.
