Pitched as “a 2D pixel, gritty action RPG,” the game is set in Demacia, a mighty kingdom in the world of Runeterra that seeks to curtail what it deems as forbidden magic while wielding magic itself to maintain order.
Promising “a story of power, identity and justice,” you will play as Sylas – an escaped mage whose quest for vengeance threatens to shatter Demacia’s deceptive peace, which was once built with the blood and sweat of mages.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Command the Magic: Magic is everywhere, including on the battlefield. From searing flames to deadly ice, master a variety of spells and customize your unique play style. Brandish your chains and use your enemies’ magic against them, or bash them with your fists–the choice is yours.
- Raise a Rebellion: Demacia is ripe for a revolution, but can you rise to the challenge of leading it? It’s up to you to find mages across the land and recruit them to your cause. Harness the power of your growing army to upgrade your base and unlock unique abilities.
- Forge Your Legacy: You see the Mageseekers for the criminals they are, but not everyone is ready for the truth. Battle formidable foes and align with unforgettable allies, both new and old. Only you can uncover the buried secrets of Demacia’s past, and use them to change the course of its future.
The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 18th April 2023.
