Indie developer Cinemax has revealed that its dungeon crawler game The Keep is making its way to Nintendo Switch next month, just in time to give it a spin on Christmas morning.

The Keep is designed to be a modern take on old-school dungeon crawlers like Dungeon Master and Etrian Odyssey, with the basic concept seeing you explore its dungeons in a first-person perspective, fighting off the many troublesome monsters with magic and weapons. You'll also need to solve puzzles along the way and evolve your character.

The game actually came to Nintendo 3DS a few years ago (we enjoyed our time with it back then, awarding the game an eight out of ten in our review). This Switch version is said to come with "a lot of improvements in graphics and gameplay", with lots of work going into this edition's control scheme; as the 3DS version focused on using the stylus with the touchscreen, this updated version has been reworked for use with the D-pad and analogue sticks.

The Keep launches on Switch on 20th December in the US and 24th December in Europe; you'll find it on the eShop for $17.99 / €17.99 / £15.99. You'll be able to grab a copy a little cheaper if you pre-order, though, with a discounted price of $13.99 / €13.99 / £11.99 being offered.
