Earlier this month, developer onebitbeyond and publisher Devolver Digital announced their brand-new game, The Swords of Ditto, a 2D hack-n-slash rogue-like RPG that is set to release on PC and PS4 sometime in early 2018.
That being said, during E3 2017 on its last day, the developer paired up with PlayStation to unveil and provide the first-look at the game’s extended gameplay.
As we previously reported, The Swords of Ditto is an RPG that can be played by yourself or via two player local co-op. In the game, you explore an equally adorable-looking and dangerous overworld full of characters to meet. You can do things like improve your hero in the village, brace menacing dungeons full of loot, and participate in hack-n-slash-like battles against Mormo and her evil armies in your quest to overcome the evil of the land. You know, the classic stuff.
In the game you can wield more traditional weapons (such as a sword and bow combo) or less tradtional unique weapons like a magic golf club, or the colossal foot from the heavens. You can also collect and equip stickers to boost your hero and add perks to your gear to become more powerful.
Interestingly, in each playthrough of the game, the next playthrough is effected. For example, you will be able to recover loot from “history’s fallen heroes.” Further, you can approach the game however you want: completing dungeons in whatever order you desire, participating in as little or as many side-quest as you want, and if you’re really looking for a challenge you can confront Mormo right at the start of the game.
A price-point for The Swords of Ditto has not been divulged. Below, you can view the new demo gameplay footage, captured on a PS4:
