Hand Of Fate 2 Arriving On July 17

It’s hard to keep up with all of the new announcements and releases for the Nintendo Switch. Unlike prior Nintendo systems where we’d know weeks and even months in advance of a title’s release, now we have companies announcing games and releasing just a few days later!

Hand of Fate 2 has quite the audience on PC and now its heading to the Switch on July 17, 2018. The Switch version will contain all of the PCs DLC from November 2017 through April 2018, with more coming as free updates. The game combines RPG and board game elements to create something unique for the platform. Check out the trailer and official PR:

 

 

Hand of Fate 2, the acclaimed action RPG from Defiant Development, will deal out a Nintendo Switch™ release on July 17, 2018.

Collect cards and build a customizable deck of equipment, enemies, encounters, loot, and surprises that will be shuffled in with the Dealer’s own challenges. Once combined, cards are laid out into a dungeon floor for players to navigate. Each card presents obstacles to overcome, including action-packed hack-and-slash combat, precarious exploration, high-risk high-reward minigames as well as Dungeons and Dragons-style storytelling and decision making.

The original Hand of Fate has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times since its debut in 2015. The award-winning sequel pits a brand-new hero against the series’ enigmatic antagonist, the Dealer, as he seeks revenge following his dramatic defeat at the climax of the first game.

The sequel sports a variety of upgrades over the original title, such as an overworld map where each location presents new challenges, new tabletop minigames, companions (including the Dealer himself) with unique side-quests that provide assistance both in battle and perks outside, more robust combat, a deeper story, and an ever-growing supply of new content. The Nintendo Switch™ version will also include all the DLC add-ons that have appeared in the PC release from its November launch through April, with more coming later post-launch.

“We’ve been careful not to tip our hand about this news until now, but our team is thrilled to finally announce Hand of Fate 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch,” said Morgan Jaffit, Director, Defiant Development. “We are very much looking forward to seeing fans having the opportunity to take the game on the go with this exciting new platform.”

Hand of Fate is available now via PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for $29.99 USD / €24.99 / $29.99 AUD and supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese language options.
