Its hybrid nature has made the Switch a good home for deckbuilding games, which are often equally suited to quick blasts on the go or extended sessions on the TV. Another on the way soon is Roguebook, published by Nacon and developed by Abrakam Entertainment (Faeria) and co-designed by Richard Garfield, the creator of Magic: The Gathering; it's due on Switch this Spring.
It's been out on PC since Summer 2021 and launches today on PlayStation / Xbox platforms, the latter of which has been used as the launch point for Fugoro, a new playable character. Overall the game's had a positive reception on Steam, so could be one to watch when it eventually makes its way to Switch in the coming months.
The ancients speak of a Book written since time immemorial containing all the world's legends. After many fabulous adventures, recounted in Faeria – Chronicles of Gagana, this relic was lost in a well of Faeria. Through contact with this source of magic, the Book developed a wicked free will of its own and became the Roguebook!
You are trapped in the Book of Lore of Faeria, and each page represents a new challenge. Lead your two heroes to victory in this roguelike deckbuilder developed in partnership with Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering™. Put together the best synergies between cards, relics and abilities, and take on the Roguebook.
- Hero pairs – Each hero has a collection of over 50 cards, a personal relic and a unique skill tree.
- Maximise synergies – The hero at the front protects the hero at the back. Switch the positions of your heroes and combine their strengths to unleash powerful combos.
- Strategic battles – Skilfully anticipate and queue up your actions to defeat over 40 bosses and enemies.
Is this on your radar ahead of its Spring Switch release?
