Darkest Dungeon Teased for Nintendo Switch

Darkest Dungeon, the brutal and addictive RPG many fans know and love, appears to be on its way to the Nintendo Switch.


Darkest Dungeon first arrived on PC in February of 2015. Beloved by critics, the demanding RPG was eventually ported to various other platforms, including PlayStation 4 and Vita in late 2016. Now it looks like the game’s next stop may be the Nintendo Switch.

Red Hook Studios, the game’s developer, has posted a tweet appearing to show the game being played on the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode:

If Darkest Dungeon winds up releasing on the Switch, it would hardly come as a surprise. The game is already available on the Vita, after all, and it could be a perfect match for the on-the-go gameplay for which the Nintendo Switch is known. Numerous publishers large and small have already announced ports of their most popular games for the new device.

In Darkest Dungeon, players lead a group of heroes through harrowing dungeon environment while dealing with the side effects of their dwindling sanity. The game features a compelling old school aesthetic, and has been a favorite among gamers who like their exploration with a little punishment on the side. Check the video embedded above if you would like to see it in action (and get a few helpful survival tips, as well).

Would you be interested in playing a Switch version of Darkest Dungeon? There is no word yet on a possible release date, but with the team at Red Hook Studios now feeling comfortable showing a version of the game running on that hardware, we may not have long to wait.
