Team17 and NExT Studios have today announced the release date for Crown Trick, which will arrive on Nintendo Switch and PC on 16 October. Redefining the roguelike genre with synchronous turn-based combat, monsters and traps only execute their moves as the player does, Crown Trick’s gameplay demands each turn is well planned to help players succeed. The game features procedurally generated dungeons so that no two runs are ever the same as enemies, puzzles, and abilities will vary with each attempt to escape the Nightmare Realm.

It’s your turn, and we suggest you use it to watch the new trailer

Waking up in the Nightmare Realm as Elle and armed with only a magical, talking crown to guide them, players develop their own unique combat style, choosing between active and passive abilities, items, and relics to suit. Mastering dominion over elements will also be a key pillar to survival, and upon vanquishing the high-level familiars found lurking in the Nightmare Realm, players will steal their skills and wield them as their own in their journey to escape.
