Inti Creates–the developer behind numerous Mega Man titles, a game that was kind of like Mega Man but not really, and the best Castlevania game that wasn’t a Castlevania–has announced a winter release for its latest game, the Switch-exclusive Dragon Marked for Death. Like their other games, you can expect a colorful, fast-paced, action-packed game that will appeal to platform fanatics of consoles of yesteryear.
A group of warriors from the Dragonblood Clan–people “who possessed the powers of the Astral Dragon”–return home to find their village burned by the rulers of the land. Forging a pact with one of the astral dragons, the warriors Empress, Warrior, Shinobi, and Witch set forth to stomp those bad dudes with a number of unique powers.
So, yes, while the story doesn’t sound like it’s going to forge any new ground, that’s not why most folks are heading to a game like this. With RPG elements like hit points and leveling married to fast-paced, classic sidescrolling action, Dragon Marked for Death is poised to suck up a lot of free time for Switch owners later this year.
