Darkest Dungeon Heading to Switch Next Week

11 January 2018

Thanks to the official Twitter account, we now have a release date for indie horror RPG Darkest Dungeon on Switch: January 18th.

After being announced back in October, the game has finally been given a release date for Nintendo's platform - and it's coming next week! The goal of the game is to beat the titular Darkest Dungeon while trying not to lose your characters to perma-death along the way.

If you want to experience dread, misery, and eventual elation on your Nintendo Switch, Red Hook is setting Darkest Dungeon loose on the system next Thursday.

In a blog post, Red Hook also shared that the game's DLC will be available for purchase on the same day as the main game's release, with "The Crimson Court" retailing for $9.99, while "The Shieldbreaker" will retail for $3.99. The downloadable content that's already available on other platforms, The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker, will launch simultaneously on the marketplace.

In addition, both of our now released DLCs, The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker will be available for purchase on release! Darkest Dungeon has also been released for iPad as well as Linux devices.

According to developer Red Hook, the updated Nintendo Switch version of Darkest Dungeon will arrive complete with Switch-enhanced touch-based controls. There's word of what the game will cost, too - just $25, the same as the current Steam version of Darkest Dungeon costs.
