Crown Trick Launches Next Month on PC and Switch

Game publisher Team17 and developer NExT Studios has announced the release date of upcoming video game Crown Trick.

The game will be available on Nintendo Switch and PC this coming Oct. 15. It is a roguelike game with synchronous turn-based combat in which monsters and traps will only execute their moves as the player moves. They will need to plan each move in order to complete a level.

This new game will also feature procedurally generated dungeons, which means no two runs will be similar with enemies, puzzles, and abilities. Everything will be vary with each attempt in order to escape the Nightmare Realm.

About the game:

Waking up in the Nightmare Realm as Elle and armed with only a magical, talking crown to guide them, players develop their own unique combat style, choosing between active and passive abilities, items, and relics to suit. Mastering dominion over elements will also be a key pillar to survival, and upon vanquishing the high-level familiars found lurking in the Nightmare Realm, players will steal their skills and wield them as their own in their journey to escape.
Crown Trick key features:

  • Engaging strategic gameplay: Monsters and traps move only when the player moves; carefully thought out strategies are key to escaping the labyrinthine dungeon
  • Fight how you want: Create and develop a unique combat style with dozens of active and passive skills and abilities, items, and relics help create different ways to cut through enemy encounters
  • Learn from enemies: Gather elite ‘Familiar’ skills by overcoming enemies ready to unleash on others deeper in the dungeon
  • Different dungeons every time: The procedurally generated maze ensures players have unique experiences every time they enter the Nightmare Realm.
