The Arcade Crew and developer Hibernian Workshop have announced that Dark Devotion will be launching on Nintendo Switch on 24th October. The game was originally intended to release earlier this year.

A sidescrolling, action-RPG adventure, Dark Devotion is said to keep the tension ramped up throughout your playthrough. Players will explore a mysterious, labyrinth-like temple, making use of equipable gear and versatile items as you choose which path you wish to take. You can see some of the action unfold in the new trailer above; having a keen eye and an infallible guard are key while exploring its murky depths.

These branching pathways are designed to encourage experimentation, both in your exploration and in your methods of defeating enemies. If things aren't looking spooky enough for you, you'll be pleased to know that there are 18 bosses lurking in the temple's chambers, all of which are waiting to happily take you down. Louis Denizet, head programmer and CEO at Hibernian Workshop, has shared the following:

“Being able to introduce Dark Devotion to RPG fans across both PC and soon consoles has been nothing short of a dream come true for us. We’re so grateful to our passionate community for sticking by us through development and embracing our debut effort so warmly, and we’re eager to see how the new console players fare on their journey to prove their faith.”

The game will be launching on 24th October, as mentioned above, and will be priced at $19.99.
