Dreadbit and Ripstone Publishing announced today that steampunk mech combat Ironcast will be launched on the Nintendo Switch this summer. The game is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Set in an alternative Victorian history, Ironcast puts players in control of gigantic mechanized machines who destroy the enemies of the British Empire. As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall walking Ironcast to defend 1880’s Victorian England from invading enemy forces.
Players do battle through a match three-like board. Through this, they can use resource nodes, which are how an Ironcast’s weapon and defensive systems operate. With a roguelite style of game flow featuring permadeath, no two campaigns are alike. With the Nintendo Switch version comes the ability to play the game docked or undocked, with an additional scheme that controls exclusively on the Switch’s touchscreen.
In addition to the reveal trailer, Ripstone and Dreadbit are live on Twitch right now, talking about tips and tricks as well as giving an exclusive first look of Ironcast’s Switch release. Ironcast is slated to be released in the summer, and is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
