We've been advised that the free update originally due today (30th September) has had a small delay to 7th October. That free update will now arrive alongside the paid DLC next week.
The Switch is certainly not short of roguelites, but Children of Morta is a popular game in the genre and is pretty decent on Switch. Now it's been confirmed that Dead Mage's title is getting a paid DLC expansion (priced at $4.99USD) on 7th October; you can see a teaser trailer above.
The main addition is a new playable character; some of the PR blurb is below.
Parallel, albeit distinct lives, can sometimes bond and start a new life, resembling both of their natures. It all becomes clear with the arrival of a warrior with two spirits. This new character expands the established party of available warriors and is playable within the Family Trials mode. This newcomer’s combat mastery and unique playstyle cannot be compared with the skills of anyone else in these lands.
A free update is also rolling out today which "enriches the game with Consecration, a new objective added to the combat-focused Family Trials mode". In addition the update is adding two full localised languages, Persian and Japanese, with the Japanese voiceover being provided by Takaya Hashi (Naruto, Sailor Moon).
Let us know if you're a fan of Children of Morta, and whether you're planning to jump into the free update and DLC!
