swords and darkness ss 1

Swords & Darkness is a 2D beat ’em up by Arc System Works, devs normally known for fighting games. You can view the reveal trailer below:


This brawler, however, is a bit different from most other games in the genre in that is actually has role playing game elements. In the game, you’ll be able to level up, acquire new equipment, learn magic and even special attacks. You’ll also be able to block in the game.

Swords & Darkness will be coming to the 3DS eShop this winter in Japan.
