Motion Twin’s Roguevania hit, Dead Cells, hasn’t died again and again — it’s lived on to new adventures. It debuted in August, with stellar reviews following it, which culminated to winning Best Action Game at The Game Awards in December. Free DLC was then announced at PAX East, and now two months later, it’s available.



“Dead Cells: Rise of the Giant, the first FREE DLC from Motion Twin is available now! Take on a new level with challenging new enemies, fight your way through and challenge the Giant… If that’s not enough for you there’s even more hidden content available for the adventurous souls. Plus, now there’s a shiny new skinning system that will allow you to dress up any way you like.”

All the details regarding what’s included can be found on the game’s page on Nintendo’s site. Haven’t explored this fantastic Roguevania nail-0biter? Our master of Metroidvanias and roguelikes, Matthew Weidner, reviewed the title last year. Nintendo is offering a $5 discount on the digital download right now, making the pickup even more worth it — this is one deal not to pass up!
