Finnish developer 10tons has shared the news that its upcoming Switch release Undead Horde will arrive later this week on 15th May.

Receiving "very positive" reviews on Steam since its launch this March, Undead Horde is a combination of action-RPG, real-time strategy, and hack'n'slash genres. As you can see in the trailer above, this one stands out by having players resurrect the dead, going on to command them in all of their evil bidding.

There are true RPG-style features present, too, such as loot collecting, levelling up and questing. This synopsis should fill you in nicely:

You're a necromancer - a re-animator of the dead. Undead Horde is a necromantic action game with elements from action RPG, strategy and hack'n'slash. Re-animate almost any enemy and build an army of dozens of undead minions. Take command and send your undead war machine against the living and their leader King Paladin Benevictor. Equip your necromancer with endless amounts of loot and lead your army to ultimate victory!

Available in just two days' time, you'll be able to snag Undead Horde for $16.99 / £14.99.
