Devolver Digital and onebitbeyond are bringing The Swords of Ditto to life in April 24th, for both PC and PS4 players. This top-down adventure game reminscenes of the Zelda series, featuring tons dungeons, an unique aesthetic with giants and throwable vinyl records, and the ability to impact the future along with friends in local co-op.
The Swords of Ditto introduced itself on June’s last year with a really unique art style that resonates with the latest wave of cartoons from the past few years. The premise is simple, but it has its twists: players will incarnate a chosen character to wield a magic sword that will endure throughout many periods of time. Preparing for battle against the evil forces of Mormo, the villain who is destroying this cute world, these adventures will have a chance to defeat the witch. If they fail, 100 years will pass, and they’ll take place of a different adventurer.
Not only the dungeons, loot and enemies will be randomly generated, but the town will change as well. Players will get to see how their failures are changing and affecting the townsfolk as years pass. But, not everything is as tragic as it sounds.
Along with the mentioned vinyl records, character can make us of stickers to upgrade their abilities, or use powers such as a giant’s foot, a golf club and laser beams. There really is a weapon or ability for everyone.
The studio behind the game has been working on The Swords of Ditto since 2015 in London, founded by the ex-creative director of Curve Studios, Jonathan ‘Bidds’ Biddle. Now, we are a bit over two months from finally getting our hands on it, when it releases in April 24 for PC and PS4.
