We didn't get too many shadow drops during today's Nintendo Direct — Portal: Companion Collection launches today, and a Live A Live demo is also going to be available to download. But one surprise during the presentation was a brand new, pretty darn cute-looking roguelite called Little Noah: Scion of Paradise.
Developed by Cygames, the makers of Dragalia Lost, this pastel-coloured adventure sees you control Noah, an alchemist who crash-lands in some ancient ruins. While she's trying to escape the ever-changing layouts of the ruins, she can recruit Lilliputs (monsters) to fight for her. And in true roguelite tradition, if you die, everything will be different on the way back. But you'll be able to use items to make yourself stronger every time you re-enter the ruins.
And the best part of this reveal? The game is out right now on the Switch. You can download Little Noah for $14.99 on the eShop right here. But before you do, here are some more details on the game.
Create unique teams and combos from 40+ recruitable allies in this casual but compelling game!
Port Manacloud—a nation that owes its power and prosperity to its alchemists. Noah, an alchemical prodigy, is journeying across the skies in her airship when she discovers mysterious floating ruins. As she draws closer to investigate, a cat leaps on board. The cat accuses Noah of being a tomb raider and unleashes a storm that sends her vessel crashing down. In need of parts to repair her ship and driven by curiosity, Noah enters the ruins...
A Casual Roguelite Action Game
Explore dungeons that shift with each playthrough and sweep through foes along the way. Use recruitable allies, "Lilliputs," and items you've collected to defeat the ruin bosses. If you get knocked out during your adventure, never fear—you can use the items you've earned to power up Noah and come back stronger than ever!
Repair your Airship, Reap the Benefits
As you venture through the ruins, you'll collect mana to repair and upgrade facilities aboard your airship. These facilities will give you boosts to make your next adventure smoother. Each facility gives different boosts, so choose how you want to power up Noah.
Unique Parties, Unique Combos
Recruit the Lilliputs you've acquired into a dungeon crawling party. Attack combos change depending on the order of your lineup—choose from 40+ Lilliputs to customize your party and maximize your power.
And, come on, a cantankerous cat? There's no reason not to pick this up.
