To say qureate has hit a few snags with the release of Duel Princess is an understatement. On the console front, the game was released on the Nintendo Switch a couple weeks ago, but pulled for various reason. The game has not returned to eShop as of the writing of this article, but a re-release is planned there. The PC release was banned by Steam which left them searching for alternate platforms to host this fun and very lewd, Tower Defense game. This list could grow but as of right now you can buy the game DRM Free on FAKKU, and the JAST store. You can also snag this one up at DLSite if you don’t mind their DRM.

Duel Princess will set you back $24.99.

Here is more about the game from the JAST Store:

With the fate of the world at stake, the fierce battle between princesses is about to begin!

Roguelite elements that lets you build decks

The stages of each princess you are up against are made up of multiple grids. Players must fight small fry enemies, which will appear in each square. Players can earn a lot of rewards through the ‘Elite’ grids, but enemies are also more powerful there. ‘Shop’ grids lets you buy and enhance units, and ‘Camp’ grids are where you can explore and earn rewards to increase your unit’s level. The objective is to defeat the princess waiting for you at the end of the stage by building up your deck and using various battle tactics. There are also roguelite elements that lets you enjoy building new deck each time you play. Carefully select cards you get from battles and events to create your very own, unique deck!

Use the deck you’ve built to take down the princess’ castles

The goal is to attack the enemy’s castle by summoning units from the cards in your hand. You can summon units from your own castle by consuming ‘Mana’, which can be accumulated over time. There are three types of units: close-range, medium-range, and long-range. These three types have a three-way relationship in terms of their advantages and disadvantages, so the key to success is choosing units according to the enemy’s type. Additionally, if you have the same unit in yoru hand, you can activate ‘Override” to combine the two to further strengthen them.

Collect crests to seal away the Great Demon King

To seal away the Great Demon King, you must collect the crests that the princesses carry on their bodies. To steal the crests, you must perform a ceremony known as a “Punishment.” The crests emerge when the princess’ body temperature and heart rate increases, so you must use items to your advantage to make the crests emerge and take them! This is the only way you can bring peace to the world, so why not be naughty and use whatever means you’ve got to punish the princesses? Speaking of which, even if a crest appears, it doesn’t mean the princesses are going to pass away at the age of 25, so there’s no need to worry.

50 different types of units

There are 50 different types of units! Each princess has a different skill set and initial card, so make sure to choose your units carefully according to your princess’ characteristics! In addition to costs, each unit comes with its own abilities including types, ranging from close-range, medium-range, and long-range. There are also four levels of rarities which include: Common, Rare, Mystic, and Legendary.

Let me know in the comments below if this game lands in anymore PC storefronts and I will update this article accordingly.
