Developer Motion Twin announced (officially) that Dead Cells will be leaving Steam’s Early Access and coming to consoles sometime this year!
“We’re thrilled to finally confirm that we’ll be bringing the Dead Cells experience to console players. We’re proud of what we’ve done with the help of the PC community and can’t wait to see how the gaming community at large react. We’ll be at Pax East next April, so come say hi! You might even get a sneak peek at the game on the console.”
After selling over 600,000 copies while in Early Access, Motion Twin is making the obvious move to bring Dead Cells to console. What’s more exciting is that this is yet another title that will be right at home on the Switch. The fast paced action and roguelite gameplay make it a fantastic edition for a mobile console. Aside from that, Dead Cells will also release simultaneously on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
For those that have missed out on the incredible Metroid-Rogue-Vania experience, Dead Cells is hands down one of the greatest in the genre. With a focus on Die, Learn, Repeat, players are forced to adapt to the fluid, fast paced combat and ever changing levels Dead Cells demands. Along your journey, you obtain weapons and items that stick with you after you die. Upon respawning, you have these items at your disposal to try again and progress further. While this might turn away some, they’re missing out, Motion Twin has found a way to make this formula work, and work very, very well.
