Team17 and NExT Studios have announced that adventure roguelike Crown Trick is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation® 4 on 31st August, following its launch last year on Steam and Nintendo Switch™. Crown Trick welcomes players to The Nightmare Realm as they guide protagonist Elle on a perilous journey through procedurally generated dungeons, carefully navigating unique enemies and traps that only move when Elle does thanks to the unique synchronous turn-based mechanic. Players will need to strategically plan each move in order to survive, using a combination of skills, Familiars, and weapons in order to escape the Nightmare Realm.
Available from today, the free Requiem of Elements downloadable content sees Nintendo Switch players invited to once again venture into the labyrinthian dungeons of Crown Trick; the new update includes ‘Dungeons of the Deep’, a new endless game mode that tests players ability to stay alive by providing a gauntlet of randomly generated traps and enemies to survive. The DLC, already available on Steam, also includes new weapons, relics, Familiars, skills, and achievements.
Crown Trick key features:
- Engaging strategic gameplay: Monsters and traps move only when the player moves; carefully thought-out strategies are key to escaping the labyrinthine dungeon
- Fight how you want: Create and develop a unique combat style with 40+ active skills, 60+ passive abilities, 30+ usable items, and 170+ special relics, all of which create different ways to cut through enemy encounters
- Learn from enemies: Gather elite ‘Familiar’ skills by overcoming enemies ready to unleash on others deeper in the dungeon
- Different dungeons every time: The procedurally generated maze ensures players have unique experiences every time they enter The Nightmare Realm.
“unique synchronous turn-based mechanic”? As in, the form of turn based used by every (true/classic) roguelike for decades? Cool to have more roguelikes on console, though, I’ve been meaning to check this one out on Switch for a while, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
