Hand of Fate 2, the celebrated action role-playing game from Defiant Development, will be dealt to the Nintendo Switch on 17th of July.
The second entry in the original RPG-board game hybrid franchise enjoyed by millions, Hand of Fate 2 introduces a number of new features and improvements to the series.
Hand of Fate 2’s Nintendo Switch version will include all the DLC that has appeared on PC from its November 2017 launch through April, with more coming later as free updates.
Collect cards and build a customizable deck of equipment, enemies, encounters, loot, and surprises that will be shuffled in with the Dealers own challenges. Once combined, cards are laid out into a dungeon floor for players to navigate. Each card presents obstacles to overcome, including action-packed hack-and-slash combat, precarious exploration, high-risk high-reward minigames as well as Dungeons and Dragons-style storytelling and decision making.
The original Hand of Fate has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times since its debut in 2015. The award-winning sequel pits a brand-new hero against the series’ enigmatic antagonist, the Dealer, as he seeks revenge following his dramatic defeat at the climax of the first game.
The sequel sports a variety of upgrades over the original title, such as an overworld map where each location presents new challenges, new tabletop minigames, companions (including the Dealer himself) with unique side-quests that provide assistance both in battle and perks outside, more robust combat, a deeper story, and an ever-growing supply of new content. The Nintendo Switch version will also include all the DLC add-ons that have appeared in the PC release from its November launch through April, with more coming later post-launch.
