In this action-adventure RPG, you will have the chance to set out on “an adventure of revenge and self-acceptance.” You and your oddball duckling spirit animal must make a name for yourselves in a world where those who can summon the mightiest spirit animals hold all the power.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
- Exploration Awaits: Four unique biomes filled with quests, enemies, puzzles, secrets, mini-games, and other characters to encounter. Make friends or foes among other fighters and their spirit animals, loot resources, and upgrade your weapons and player powers.
- Intricate Combat: Engage in hack-and-slash combat with an array of weapons that can be switched in real-time to create multiple combos. Mix and match weapon types with various elemental buffs to gain an advantage over your enemies in battle. Summon your duckling buddy to assist with his own attacks and powers, making you a force to be reckoned with.
- Craft to the Rythem of the Beat: Forge weapons in a unique, rhythm-based crafting mini-game. The better you craft to the beat, the stronger your forged weapon becomes. Collect and combine various resources to create the ultimate arsenal.
- Your New Best Friend: Yes, he’s an oddball duckling, but your little buddy has his own set of unique skills. Take control of your feathered friend to fly, swim, solve specific puzzles, access unreachable areas, and uncover various secrets. Embrace this little dude as your partner and set out to become an unstoppable duo.
What The Duck will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 9 November 2023.
