Switch Port Confirmed for Hybrid ARPG Hand of Fate 2

Defiant Development has announced a Nintendo Switch port for Hand of Fate 2.

The card-battling and action RPG hybrid game will launch for the hybrid console on July 17th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer showing off more of the game.

It’s worth pointing out the Switch port will include all the post-launch DLC made available since its release in November of last year up to this past April.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Collect cards and build a customizable deck of equipment, enemies, encounters, loot, and surprises that will be shuffled in with the Dealer’s own challenges. Once combined, cards are laid out into a dungeon floor for players to navigate. Each card presents obstacles to overcome, including action-packed hack-and-slash combat, precarious exploration, high-risk high-reward minigames as well as Dungeons and Dragons-style storytelling and decision making.

The original Hand of Fate has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times since its debut in 2015. The award-winning sequel pits a brand-new hero against the series’ enigmatic antagonist, the Dealer, as he seeks revenge following his dramatic defeat at the climax of the first game.

The sequel sports a variety of upgrades over the original title, such as an overworld map where each location presents new challenges, new tabletop minigames, companions (including the Dealer himself) with unique side-quests that provide assistance both in battle and perks outside, more robust combat, a deeper story, and an ever-growing supply of new content.

Hand of Fate 2 has been available for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
