Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition Hits Retail On Nintendo Switch In March


Merge Games and Red Hook Studios have announced a partnership to release the award-winning gothic RPG Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition at retail.

The physical copy will include the original Darkest Dungeon game and the two expansions, The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker.

The Crimson Court adds a new hero class in The Flagellant, The Courtyard as a new dungeon, and more, while The Shieldbreaker throws in The Shieldbreaker hero class, three new monsters, and a new consumable item in the Aegis Scale.

“We are over the moon to be working with Red Hook Studios,” Merge Games managing director Luke Keighran enthused. “Darkest Dungeon is a fantastic brand and working with the Red Hook team has been a joy. We believe Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition will be warmly welcomed by retailers and fans alike.”

Red Hook Studios co-president Tyler Sigman adds: “Many fans have been clamouring for a physical edition of the game, and Merge Games was the right partner to help us get this done! We’re thrilled for people to have the option to buy a retail box…and we’re going to be keeping a few copies in our personal libraries, too!”

Darkest Dungeon: Ancestral Edition will release for Nintendo Switch in March, priced at £34.99 (€39.99).
