Corona-chan may be bedding many a company with her deadly embrace, putting a kiss of death on their product releases and entertainment ventures, but publisher Keybol Games and developer Misou Games were averse to Corona-chan’s wily charms. Their four-player cooperative boss-rush game, Towertale, is still scheduled to release on the Nintendo Switch starting April 8th.
The game sees four different adventurers, each with their own goals, attempting to scale up a tower and defeat an evil that lurks atop the structure.
Along the way, the four adventurers, Lord Snicklefritz, Faindrel, Lionel, and Dark Echo, will have to face off against a bevy of bosses guarding each floor of the tower. You’ll have to use your wits and reflexes to overcome their attacks, and plenty of teamwork to finally take them down. You can get a glimpse of what the gameplay is like with the trailer below.
The gameplay reminds me a lot of Castle Crashers, but instead of being a side-scrolling beat-’em-up, it’s a side-scrolling boss-’em-up.
The game features Flash-style animations, so if you’re not keen on that kind of design, then you might want to look elsewhere. However, if you’re okay with the puppeteer animation motif then you’ll be able to take on the role of one of the four heroes and utilize their special attacks against the bosses.
There are 17 different multi-phases bosses you’ll have to trudge through, as well as several game modes including Arcade Mode, Boss-Rush, and Free Mode.
Additionally, there’s a single-player mode that covers the story for each of the characters, assuming you wanted to learn more about the lore.
You can look for Towertale to make its way to the Nintendo Switch in just a couple of weeks starting April 8th.
Pre-purchases are currently available over on the Nintendo eShop, but it’s probably best to wait for the game to release before you make the decision to spend your hard earned coins on the digital outing.
