Dragon Marked for Death Delayed to Account for Physical Release
During Anime NYC, Inti Creates revealed that its Nintendo Switch exclusive Dragon Marked for Death has been delayed to account for a physical release.
During Anime NYC 2018, Dragon Marked for Death producers Takuya Aizu and Yoshifumi Hashimoto hosted a panel for the game and revealed quite a large chunk of information regarding the price point, physical releases, and even a slight delay.
Dragon Marked for Death is a dark fantasy action RPG developed by Inti Creates for Nintendo Switch, and was originally slated to release on December 13, 2018. According to a press release, Inti Creates is now partnering up with Nighthawk Interactive to produce physical copies for the game “as close to the digital release date as possible.”
Due to this, the game has been delayed to January 31st, 2019 to account for the manufacturing and release of the physical editions. The producers also announced that it will be sold in two different versions of the game that cost $14.99 each. The Frontline Fighters Pack will contain the Empress and Warrior characters, which the developers claim are “more friendly to beginners.” The pack will also add DPS and Tank class characters.
Meanwhile, the Advanced Attackers Pack will contain the Shinobi and Witch characters, who are “geared towards more advanced players” due to their wider array of skills. Whichever pack players don’t purchase initially will then be available as DLC.
Finally, a brand new trailer for the game was revealed during the panel. It is a fully animated promotional video, which does not show gameplay. You can watch it below. Dragon Marked for Death now releases for Nintendo Switch digitally on January 31st, 2019, with a physical release coming shortly after.
