Cellar Door Games introduce themselves to Nintendo’s hybrid.
Cellar Doors Games is arriving to Switch in November 6th, with a simultaneous release of Rogue Legacy and Full Metal Furies for Nintendo’s hybrid console. One of the first in the rogue-lite genre to stand out and a puzzle brawler 2D co-op adventure are arriving in just a couple of weeks.
Quietly, the studio made the announcement last night with a new trailer offering a glance of everything you can expect. Keep in mind this isn’t a bundle, though, and you’ll be charged for each game individually. And, while Rogue Legacy is a singleplayer experience only, Full Metal Furies will include both local and online multiplayer.
If you somehow lived in a bubble during 2013, then let me explain Rogue Legacy to you. You get in the armor of a knight trying to lift the curse of a castle by, well, destroying everything in their path. The thing is, living up to its name, there’s a long family tree to follow and upgrade using your hard-earned gold from each dungeon. The twist is that every character your lineage follows in each run carries a trait, which can go from gigantism to moving everything you see on-screen upside down. Some are plainly hilarious, while others present interesting challenges or advantages.
As for Full Metal Furies, the announcement trailer revealed early last year showcased a beat ’em up with four different characters that could be controlled individually during online matches or by the same person in singleplayer, alternating between them to depending on the needed skill in each battle. And while it does include all this, it has a huge focus on puzzles as well. The art style is gorgeous, too, and I’m always up for a new brawler.
Both Rogue Legacy and Full Metal Furies are already available on Nintendo’s eShop for the price of $14.99 USD and $19.99 USD respectively. As always, make sure to visit the site for more information and don’t forget to follow the devs on Twitter.
