Zen Studios and Saber Interactive have announced Circus Electrique, a turn-based tactical RPG heading for the Switch on September 9th, 2022.
The game takes place in a steam-punk version of Victorian London in the aftermath of an event called "The Maddening", in which everyday Londoners are turned into violent killers. It's up to the eccentric performers of the circus to save the day in a story-driven game filled with turn-based combat mechanics and circus management systems.
Here's a list of features from Saber Interactive:
Electrifying RPG Combat: Assemble an amazing team of acrobatic artists. Choose from 15 playable archetypes like Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Escape Artists, Clowns, and other classic circus performers, each offering a deep variety of tactical skills and decisions in battle. Balance their positioning and abilities strategically to overcome whatever challenges you may encounter.
A Circus Like No Other: Immerse yourself in a striking world and story based on vintage circus posters, Victorian-era archetypes and classic steampunk charm.
Manage the Greatest Show in Steampunk London: The show must go on! Rebuild the circus to its former glory and beyond, recruiting and training the most talented performers from around the world. Their skill, chemistry with one another, and overall Devotion combine to determine the success of each show – and you’ll need every shilling you can get to keep the lights on.
