Starting next week you’ll be able to get your hands on Red Hook Studios’ Darkest Dungeon for the Nintendo Switch. Over on the official website the developers announced that the mind-flaying, Eldritch-slaying, sanity-breaking rogue-like RPG will be available on the Nintendo eShop starting January 18th.

The blog post explains that not only will the game release but it will also have the accompanying DLC, The Crimson Court and The Shieldbreaker, available for purchase as well. The base game will be $24.99 on the eShop, while The Crimson Court will be $9.99 and the Shieldbreaker will be $3.99.

New to the Switch version are touch controls, so when you’re playing on the go you’ll be able to take advantage of the game’s touchscreen capabilities. Additionally, Switch owners can also look forward to the Color of Madness DLC to launch for the system at some point in the near future, too. They don’t have a time-frame on when the DLC will be available but they mention that details will arrive in the coming months.

Darkest Dungeon - Monstrosity

The good part is that you’ll be able to play Darkest Dungeon on your TV or while on the go. The bad part is that you won’t be able to load mods into the game.

So what’s the downside to not being able to mod the game? Well, one of the most popular mods for Darkest Dungeon is the anime nude mod. So if you want to make good on sexy mods you’ll have to stick with PC.

On the upside, Red Hook smartly only announced the game a few months out from its eventual release on the Nintendo Switch, as opposed to forcing gamers to wait six months to a year like some developers.

Anyway, the game is currently available right now on PC for $24.99 as well, so if you wanted to check it out you can do so over on the Steam store page. It’s a Lovecraftian horror-RPG steeped in Gothic themes and designed to frustrate even the most skilled and pragmatic players. It’s also notorious for making people rage quit.
