Card-based RPG SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech will release on the Nintendo Switch April 25, 2019.
Originally announced during the January 2019 Nintendo Indie Showcase, the fourth proper SteamWorld game switches up the series’ formula with card-based battles where you build, craft and upgrade your heroes’ decks.
SteamWorld Quest follows a party of aspiring heroes as they fight their way through battles using more than 100 unique cards to form custom-made decks. Players will explore a vibrant world that mixes fantasy and bantering steam-driven robots, filled with treasure chests, dragons, magic, knights in shining armor, and turn-based combat well-loved by RPG fans.
“The SteamWorld community has asked us to make an RPG for a long time, so I’m really happy and satisfied that we’re delivering such a polished title way sooner than anyone expected,” ays Brjánn Sigurgeirsson, CEO at Image & Form. “Since we announced in January we’ve watched the growing excitement among gamers, press and content creators. I’m confident that fans of RPGs and previous SteamWorld games will adore SteamWorld Quest because it’s an absolute gem. We will keep the momentum going via our website and social media channels until the release and beyond.”
The game will launch on the Nintendo eShop at $24.99 / €24.99 / £22.49.
