Dead Cells, a roguevania that earned an honorable mention for our Early Access of the Year 2017 award, is headed to more homes when it officially launches. Dev Motion Twin announced today that their action-packed title is headed to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The release date will be revealed at a later time.
“We're thrilled to finally confirm that we'll be bringing the Dead Cells experience to console players," says Motion Twin Producer Steve Filby in the press release for the announcement. "We're proud of what we've done with the help of the PC community and can’t wait to see how the gaming community at large react. We'll be at Pax East next April, so come say hi! You might even get a sneak peek at the game on the console.”
It's wonderful news that players across all platforms will get a chance to play this incredibly fun roguevania. It's still in development, but the chunk that is available to play in Early Access has a lot of depth and runs pretty well. Nintendo Switch is increasingly being known as the prime home console for indie games and Nintendo celebrated this new development with the trailer above on their official channel. Dead Cells is bound to do well across all home consoles, but the pacing of a roguevania like Dead Cells is a snug fit for a mobile console.
Dead Cells has already moved over 600,000 copies in Early Access and is sure to pick up steam with this new development. If you play on PC, Dead Cells is available on Steam and GOG right now for $19.99.
