Australian-developed City of Brass is one of the best FPS roguelites going around. Not only does it offer slick, engaging, challenging action, but it has a really cool Arabian Nights theme. It would have been nice to see more done with the theme, since we don’t get enough games set within that incredible piece of literature, but nonetheless, as we said in our review of PlayStation 4 release of City of Brass, everything about the game is sheer quality.
The Switch version will be based on the most recent console updates, so will include all the extra character classes and additions that have been made to the game over the last year. From the press release: “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 game is perfect for the kind of on-the-go gameplay that the Switch excels at. It will be one of the early nice surprise releases of 2019!
