Launching today on the Switch eShop is Epitaph, a competitive, fast-paced tactical game where death takes centre stage.
Taking place in the afterlife, Epitaph has you selecting three reapers from a total of 13 in order to do battle. It’s said to feature a “unique mix of strategy and timing,” hoping to pull off a combination of abilities inspired by Darkest Dungeon and real-time combat inspired by Final Fantasy‘s Active Time Battle System, and tasks you with outsmarting your opponents and planning out your abilities to land combos.
Here’s an official description and a feature list:
Battle for control of the afterlife in Epitaph, a competitive, fast-paced tactical battler. Pick three Reapers, the aspects of death, and fight your opponent in real-time, cooldown-based combat. You’ll control all three characters at once, sequencing their abilities and setting up explosive combos to decimate your opponent. But be careful – every time a Reaper dies, they come back stronger, so moving closer to victory will make your opponents even more deadly.
– Local Multiplayer
– Online Multiplayer (Steam Only)
-Single-Player Puzzle Mode with Over 150 Puzzles
– 13 Characters, Combining into 286 Different Teams
As noted above, the game’s launching today on Nintendo Switch. You can pick it up for $12.99 and it’ll take up just 249MB of space on your console.
