Zen Studios has announced that Dread Nautical will release on Nintendo Switch this month.
This is a horror-themed, tactical, turn-based RPG with roguelike elements, in which malevolent, supernatural forces have overwhelmed the luxury cruise liner Hope and will wipe out any guest in their path.
You will choose from one one of four unique characters and must work your way through 20 randomly generated decks of the ship to scavenge for food and other supplies.
This will see you encounter 11 other survivors who may choose to join the fight based on your choices and social interaction skills. However, you will need to be careful in planning which companions to choose, what weapons they wield and which skills you upgrade to survive your vacation.
“The release of Dread Nautical to consoles and PC speaks to Zen Studios’ pursuit of developing a broad range of well-polished games to redefine our studio as more than just Pinball Wizards,” explains Zen Studios vice president of publishing, Mel Kirk.
“We’re proud of everything we’ve brought to the pinball space, but are ready to take on new challenges in the broader gaming space. More importantly, we are incredibly excited to allow our dev teams the freedom to create games they want to play, including titles in the turn-based RPG genre like Operencia: The Stolen Sun and CastleStorm II.”
Dread Nautical will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 29th April 2020.
