The original indie roguelike sensation is out on Nintendo Switch at last.
Rogue Legacy, the roguelike sensation that went on to become one of the defining indie games of the previous generation, has now made the jump to Nintendo’s Switch. It is available on the Nintendo eShop right now, and can be bought for a price of $15.
Rogue Legacy is a roguelike, meaning you end up going into procedurally generated dungeons, so each death effectively “resets” your progress. Traditionally, this has been one of the biggest barriers against roguelikes becoming popular, a problem Rogue Legacy addressed with its genius inheritance system, where each death sees you play as the descendant of your previous character, accumulating skills, experience, and loot over time, and so never quite feeling like you actively wasted your time. Given that it lends itself equally well to longer sessions, as well as short, spur of the moment runs, it is also a game that is extremely well suited to the Switch.
Rogue Legacy is also available now on PC, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One, in addition to now being on Nintendo Switch. If you’re still not convinced on the game, make sure to check out our review for the PS4 release.
