Versus Evil and Breadcrumbs Interactive have revealed that Yaga, an action RPG, will be launching on Nintendo Switch this November.
The game tells the story of Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith with incredibly bad luck, and is said to be crafted around a "darkly funny narrative". Ivan must take on the impossible tasks given to him by the tzar, while a mysterious witch, Baba Yaga, watches over his fate.
You'll find a variety of nefarious monsters and legends on your journey, all of which have been inspired by Slavic folk tales, and it's up to you to use your weapons to get by. Speaking of weapons, the game features a "deep crafting system" which will help you to create lightning hammers, hookshot pitchforks, and all sorts of similarly deadly melee weapons.
Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil, has shared the following in a press release:
"Yaga's unique mix of traditional rogue-like and RPG mechanics, combined with its eye-catching art makes it a game that’s hard to put down. Presenting an ARPG within the rich Slavic folklore and exploring the history it represents is another distinguishing factor to Yaga. We can’t wait for gamers to play Yaga this November."
