Humble Bundle is bringing Contingent99's Wizard of Legend to the Switch eShop, it has been revealed.
The 2D action title mixes intense combos with more than 100 customisable spells in a roguelike setting, and also offers both single and co-op modes. It's the work of high school chums Bundy Kim and Dahoon Lee, and will be coming to Switch alongside the PS4, Xbox One and Steam versions in the first quarter of 2018.
Here's some PR:
Wizard of Legend is a fast paced dungeon crawler with an emphasis on dynamic magical combat. Quick movement and even quicker use of spells will allow you to chain spells together to unleash devastating combinations against your enemies! Unlock and master over a hundred elemental spells which will allow you to create a hand best suited to your playstyle. Dive head first into the fray or stand back and let your minions do the work for you, the choice is yours!
As this game is our debut project, the basis for the game first came to form after many months of prototyping different ideas in the format of a 2D action adventure game. We knew we wanted create a game similar to the beloved action adventure games of the classic SNES era, that emphasized item discovery and exploration. But we also wanted to create a game with an engaging combat system with a pacing similar to modern hack and slash games with a hint of inspiration from fighting games. What we ended up with is a fast paced spell slinging dungeon crawler called Wizard of Legend.
+ Fast paced spell slinging combat!
+ Over 100 unique elemental spells to discover and unlock!
+ Procedurally generated levels with both random and precrafted rooms mean a new challenge every time!
+ Dynamic bosses and enemies that gain new abilities as you play
+ Endless customization with hundreds of relics and outfits to unlock!
+ Two player local co-op
It certainly looks like good stuff to us and reminds us a little of Hyper Light Drifter. What about you? Let us know if you're excited about playing this title on your Switch by casting a spell in the comments section below.
