After enjoying a successful launch on Steam, roguelite platformer Vagante is headed to Nintendo Switch and other consoles later this month thanks to indie publisher, BlitWorks.
Described as "a very challenging class-based roguelike with an emphasis on combat," Vagante has players exploring procedurally generated levels either alone, or with friends in co-op mode. It sports an art style influenced by games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, and Vagrant Story, and features plenty of secrets to discover across its four distinct areas.
It'll be available from the Switch eShop on 27th January priced at $14.99 / 13,99€. Here's some more info:
Support for up to 4 players Local and Online Co-op - Join your friends and jump into the adventure!
Class-based, Choose How You Play - Choose a unique class, skin, and background, then customize your character further as you play with your choice of unique class skills at each level.
Procedurally Generated Dungeons - With procedurally generated levels, no two runs are ever the same, allowing for countless hours of gameplay.
Permadeath and permanent specializations unlock system - As players progress further in the adventure, they will count with a broader range of playstyles, their characters won't be technically stronger but instead their experience and learnings will make their skills improve over time.
Enchanted Items - Discover magic items that bestow powerful enchantments and game changing abilities.
Discover Secrets - Keep track of unlocked classes, backgrounds, music, and more in the Book of Secrets.
Explore a Rich World - Explore four unique areas each with their own set of dangers such as monsters, unique bosses, and traps.

The PC version of the game was in development for five years, mostly put together by a three-man team based in North America. With positive reviews on Steam and the console ports now all wrapped up, it certainly looks set to find a new audience on the Switch eShop.
