Sit down at the Dealer’s table and get dealt into the “Game of Life and Death,” where magical decks of collectible cards are shuffled and laid out into dungeons, ready to explore. Each card offers perilous exploration, high-risk high-reward mini-games, as well as Dungeons and Dragons-style storytelling and decision making. When a card calls for battle the tabletop board is left behind, bringing the cards to life in action-packed sequences that play out in third-person hack-and-slash combat.
The award-winning follow-up to the original Hand of Fate, which has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times since its release in 2015, introduces a number of enhancements. Alongside a new story, the sequel features invaluable companion characters that provide aide in and out of combat along with their own storylines, a much-improved combat system, new tabletop mini-games, and an overworld map to explore the narrative in new and exciting ways.
The Nintendo Switch version comes packed with all the DLC released for its PC counterpart between the game’s November 2018 launch and April 2019. More add-ons are on the way.
“When we originally released Hand of Fate 2 the reception from fans was overwhelmingly positive, praising the improvements to every facet of gameplay alongside the exciting new changes,” said Morgan Jaffit, Director, Defiant Development. “Now the thriving Nintendo community has the opportunity to play the franchise beloved by millions.”
Hand of Fate 2 is also via PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese language options.
