Image & Form has announced that their next entry into the SteamWorld series, SteamWorld Quest, will be launching exclusively on Nintendo Switch on April 25, 2019.
SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, as it’s fully known, is an upcoming card-based RPG set in the SteamWorld universe and has players building, crafting, and upgrading hero-based decks and taking them into battle. The game once again blending steampunk with a period in history, this time, medieval times.
Interestingly, rather than just simple cards, the game features mechanical punch cards which can be used to unleash attacks, defend, and heal – among other things. There’ll be over 100 to collect, too.
To celebrate the release date announcement, Image & Form have released a gameplay trailer for SteamWorld Quest which you can see below.
The press release also states that SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech will be available exclusively on the Nintendo eShop “for the foreseeable future” which looks to rule out a future release on other platforms – at least, digitally, anyway.
