Devolver Digital Reveals Action RPG The Swords of Ditto for PC and PS4

Devolver Digital and indie developer One Bit Beyond have announced The Swords of Ditto.

The new “compact action RPG” is coming to both PC and PlayStation 4, and will launch sometime next year. Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer.

Here are the first screenshots for the colorful game:

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Devolver:

The Swords of Ditto is a compact action RPG that creates a unique adventure for each new hero of legend in the relentless fight against the evil Mormo. Explore a delightful but dangerous overworld, brave menacing dungeons, and improve your hero in a charming village, during your quest to overcome the evil that plagues the island. Unleash the mystical Sword of Ditto and grab a co-op friend for an unforgettable adventure filled with delightful characters, extraordinary loot, and heroic battles!

Key Features:

  • Unique Adventures Linked Together: Each adventure becomes its own legend, both distinct from those that came before it and part of a heroic legacy that bind together. The deeds, successes, and failures of each hero’s adventure have implications for those that follow including the ability to find weapons and recover loot from history’s fallen heroes.
  • Solo & Cooperative Adventuring: Battle Mormo and her evil armies alone or summon a brave friend to take up arms alongside you in local co-op mode. Fear not, even less experienced adventurers will find help from their fellow heroes through the magic of a good old-fashioned revival hug!
  • Weapons, Items, & Stickers: Wield the traditional sword and bow combo alongside the decidedly less traditional vinyl record Frisbee, magic golf club, and colossal foot from the heavens to put Mormo and her legions back on their heels. Collect and equip stickers to boost up your hero and add perks to their gear to become powerful enough to banish the wicked sorceress.
  • Main Quests and Secret Side Missions: Approach your legend however you see fit by battling through dungeons in any order, completing side missions through dark caverns and deep wells, or confront Mormo right from the start for the ultimate challenge.

    The octopus looks like a horde of Dittos having an orgy.

    Well I’m interested. I could go for a good co-op top down 2d game with distinctive characters.

    Rogue Legacy meets Four Swords is a great concept and it’s being paired with some really crisp art this looks like it should be a winner right out of the gate, only thing that annoys is the Adventure Time-esque irreverent humor it seems to have.

    Looks good for 5 bucks.

    Local co-op are basically magic words to get me to buy a half-decent game nowadays.

    Tome me it was more Shovel Knight meets Ittle Dew, but yeah, I got the Adventure Time vibe as well.
