City of Brass, the Arabian Nights-inspired first-person rogue-lite adventure from the BioShock veterans at Uppercut Games, is coming to Nintendo Switch on this February 8, 2019. The game is currently available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam.
Armed with a bullwhip and blades, embark on a grand heist to plunder the fabled treasures within its accursed walls by lashing and slashing through legions of lost souls who guard over the vast riches that adorn the treacherous City of Brass.
Gameplay and Mechanics
The game revolves around the rhythmic interplay between melee combat and movement. The protagonist’s whip can be used both in and out of battle in a variety of ways; It can disarm foes, trip and stun them, and open defensive opportunities that can be exploited by other weapons.
The whip can also be used to grab faraway objects and swing to safety or manipulate booby traps littered throughout the mythical metropolis, turning the environment on its unwitting denizens.
With procedurally-generated environments that see the labyrinthine streets shift on every run, City of Brass urges players to put their newfound knowledge from every playthrough to the test.
But the challenge can also be tailored to every individual with the Blessings & Burdens system, which provides a wealth of modifiers to adjust the difficulty and game feel with optional modifiers to various game systems, including player health, damage output, item cost, and more.
What’s New in the Switch Version?
The Nintendo Switch version will also launch with three unlockable characters alongside the starting Fool and Traveler duo. This group includes the fast but frail knife-fighting Brigand, the spear-throwing Soldier, and the strong but slow Hellion genie, each bringing something different to the table and keeping the experience fresh while players strive to attain the ultimate goal.
This new release also features a myriad of enhancements made to the game since its initial launch, including new relics, weapons, enemies, and various quality of life improvements.
The game was financed with the assistance of Screen Australia’s Games Enterprise Program and supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Polish, Russian, Turkish, Japanese, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language options.
