In this frantic one or two-player local and online co-op roguelite, you play as the Fools – courageous and foolhardy anthropomorphic sailors – as they set out aboard their good ship Stormstrider to save their Archipelago from deadly leviathans and The Everlasting Storm.
Their efforts to prevent the Aquapocalypse will soon see you engage in chaotic cannon firefights, thwack enemies with oars and perform deck repairs, as “behemoths from the depths” do their utmost best to send you to Davey Jones’ locker.
Along your journey, you will be able to secure rewards from enemy encounters, recover lost treasures, peruse remote shops on islands and use harpoons to loot items adrift on the open sea.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Bombastic combat: Frantic ship-based combat against colossal leviathans and horrifying creatures from across the deep, dark waters of the Archipelago
- Frantic co-op experience: Designed from the keel up for co-op play, manage ship repairs in the heat of battle, reload and re-manoeuvre cannons, and use paddles to strike enemies as they board the Stormstrider
- Endless replayability: Upgrade your crew and unlock items and additional Fools to take on the ever-changing seas, with multiple runs needed to avert the Aquapocalypse.
Ship of Fools will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide “later this year.”
