Launching today on Nintendo Switch is Masquerada: Songs and Shadows, an RPG which first appeared on PC back in 2016.
Actually described as a tactical RPG, Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is a fully-voiced adventure featuring a cast which includes Jennifer Hale (of Mass Effect, Mortal Kombat 11, and DuckTales), Matt Mercer (of Kingdom Hearts III, Critical Role, and Attack on Titan), and Ashly Burch of (Horizon Zero Dawn, Borderlands 2, and Steven Universe).
If you want to learn a little more about it, this synopsis should do the trick:
Cicero Gavar searches for a missing friend in Ombre, a fantastical city inspired by Renaissance-era Venice and brought to life in a rich, vibrant hand-drawn art style. As Cicero and his companions navigate a society steeped in class inequality, they must wield the four elements in devastating combos and crush their foes together in real-time combat with tactical pause.
Five years of civil war have rocked this city-state and claimed more than human casualties. Numerous Mascherines, mysterious masks that grant magical powers, have been lost to the destruction. Cicero’s party will discover how their pasts are entwined with not only the war, but with the history of those ancient masks and the ruins of civilization on which their home is built.
The game has received "very positive" user reviews on Steam so far, although our chums over at Push Square had mixed feelings on the PS4 version.
It's available to buy right now on Nintendo Switch for $19.99 / £17.99. Will you be giving it a go?
