Dicey Dungeons Drops on Nintendo Switch After Missing Indie World Showcase
The PC hit is available right now.
Nintendo held their latest Indie World Showcase yesterday and there were a load of great announcements and updates. As well as the outstanding announcements, however, the showcase had a few glaring omissions. One of the titles people were hoping for that never showed was Team Cherry’s Hollow Knight: Silksong and another was the deckbuilding roguelike Dicey Dungeons.
While Silksong remains somewhere, seemingly lost in the ether, Dicey Dungeons developer Terry Cavanagh has since provided fans with a very exciting update on his title’s Nintendo Switch port.
The game, which has been available on PC since August 2019, is available to purchase and download on the Switch right now. The announcement came with a message from the dev team, which said:
I’m really excited about today’s launch! I think the game is a great fit for the Switch, and I’m really hoping it finds a new audience here that digs what we’re all about.
If you’ve enjoyed Dicey Dungeons, today is a really good day to spread the word and tell people about it! We’re a tiny team of independent creators, publishing a console game on our own, and to be honest, we really need all the help we can get <3
While it’s strange that the title was left out of yesterday’s Indie World Showcase, especially after the Switch port was revealed on one earlier this year, it’s great that it is now out on the Switch.
For those who are unaware, Dicey Dungeons sees the player assume the role of a giant walking dice. The player must build a deck to fight monsters and gather loot in order to take down Lady Luck.
Dicey Dungeons may have missed out on the Indie World Showcase, but there were plenty of other titles that didn’t. Headlining the show were announcements of Switch releases for the likes of Spelunky and Spelunky 2, Grindstone, Gnosia and Among Us.
