The list of intriguing upcoming Switch eShop releases continues to grow, and now we can add Ironcast to the roster. Published by Ripstone and developed by Dreadbit, it's a 'steampunk mech combat game' with turn-based strategy; it also seems to have some puzzle / matching gameplay.
You can get an idea of what it's all about in the trailer and press release excerpt below.
Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast's various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely; either offensively to cripple and destroy opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapon fire is due.
The roguelite style of Ironcast enforces that death is permanent, but rewards are persistent and no two campaigns are the same. With randomly generated missions, over 50 unlockable items and the potential for rare enemy loot drops, commanders will face a new crusade with every play through.
It's a game that'll also tap into the various play setups of the Switch, with TV play, handheld and desktop gaming all supported. The Pro Controller will be an option as well as touchscreen alternatives, while HD Rumble is promised.
There's also a livestream on right now, which you can see below if you've been quick to read this article.
