Red Hook Studios Teases Darkest Dungeon on Switch 1

Red Hook Studios added another reason on Saturday to consider getting the Nintendo Switch. The official Twitter account and Facebook page for the award-winning indie darling Darkest Dungeon released a video that hinted the title may be headed over to the system.

The video features a player’s party in combat as the screen slowly pans out to reveal the Nintendo Switch. The company has not made an official statement at this time. It’s unclear whether the Darkest Dungeon Switch release will be a port or whether it will feature any changes from the original although the gameplay in the video seems similar to the original game.

Red Hook Studios released Darkest Dungeon for the PC last year in January. It received a delayed console release for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita later in the year. It went on to win a number of awards including PC Gamer’s Best RPG of 2016 award, three awards from Game Informer’s Best RPG of 2016, indie game awards at Pax East in 2014 and 2015, and numerous others. The developers are also dedicated to the game as new builds are released often to address bugs and issues.

Featuring a distinct art style, the punishing roguelike forces players to make tough choices and sacrifices as they progress through the game. Darkest Dungeon features a wide cast of adventurers the player can recruit and develop to their liking, which only makes the loss of them that much worse. Check out our thoughts on the game in our review.

Red Hook Studios isn’t the only developer to hint at releasing a previous title for the Nintendo Switch. Platinum Games tweeted an image on a new Twitter account in July featuring the protagonist of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 in distinctly Switch-like colours. Only time will tell whether players will see the gritty heroes of Darkest Dungeon alongside the titular character of Bayonetta on the Nintendo Switch in the near future.
