Defiant Development has announced that its acclaimed action RPG Hand of Fate 2 will be playing its hand on Switch next week.

The game tasks players with collecting cards and building a customisable deck of equipment, enemies, encounters, and loot which all gets shuffled in with extra challenges from the Dealer. Once all of these things are combined, cards are laid out into a dungeon floor for players to navigate; each card presents obstacles to overcome, including hack-and-slash combat, exploration, high-risk high-reward minigames, and Dungeons and Dragons-style storytelling.

The original game has been downloaded over 2.5 million times since it released in 2015, and this sequel has "very positive" reviews on Steam - where it has been available since November last year. Morgan Jaffit, director at Defiant Development, has said the following about the game's Switch reveal:

"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. We are very much looking forward to seeing fans having the opportunity to take the game on the go with this exciting new platform.”

The game will be available on Switch on 17th July with pricing details still to be confirmed.
