A real-time strategy (RTS) game with a pixel, minimalist aesthetic, Death Crown has stood out on the battlefield since its launch on Steam last year. Now that’s changing this November when Death Crown joins the Nintendo Switch library. Being ported over from PC, the Switch version will receive “a [customized] control system and its two DLC releases: Era of Human and Demonic Menace.” 

In a press release from Badland Publishing, here’s what you can expect when you answer Death Crown’s call for battle:


“Death Crown will offer three campaigns in which you will lead the dead, the humans or the demons, through more than 90 maps. And you’ll sweat blood to conquer them all, because from the third map of each faction (there are 20 scenarios in the campaign of each side) the AI will be relentless. You’ll also face 12 bosses with unique mechanics.

Do you think you’re an expert in the RTS genre? If so, then apart from the three campaigns, Death Crown offers a challenge only available to masters of real-time strategy: Domination Mode, where players can climb the rankings while facing 30 hellish missions with only three lives. If you lose them all, you’ll have to start from the beginning. And if you want to dominate the world in good company, Death Crown will allow you to play the campaigns in cooperative or face another player in a versus in Local mode.”

Get ready for war when Death Crown marches onto the Nintendo eShop on Thursday, November 12th.
