Ysbryd Games and Witching Hour Studios have announced that Masquerada: Songs and Shadows will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
This tactical RPG takes place in a fantastical world inspired by Renaissance-era Venice and stars the voice talents of Matt Mercer, Felicia Day, Jennifer Hale, Dave Fennoy, and Ashly Burch.
Brought to life in a vibrant, hand-drawn art style, a friend’s disappearance leads Cicero Gavar to search for them.
Only the wealthy and powerful can lay claim to Mascherines, masks that grant magical powers. However, after a five-year civil war, the destruction of such precious artifacts have resulted in them growing more elusive.
On his journey, Cicero will crush his enemies in real-time combat with tactical pause, with the chance to combine his control over the elements with those of his companions.
That adventure will see the party unearth how intimately the secrets of their pasts are intertwined with the war, their society, and the history of the Mascherines.
“Masquerada was an incredible experience for me. As a lover of storytelling and character development, the incredible writing of the game drew me in immediately,” explains Matt Mercer, voice actor for Cicero Gavar. “Now mix this grand tale with my love of isometric RPGs of yore, and I’m sold on multiple levels. I’m not just a cast member of the project, but a dedicated fan.”
Masquerada: Songs and Shadows will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on May 9th, priced at $19.99.
