Slay the Spire Comes to Android Early Next Month

Android users, our long national nightmare is almost over. On February 3, Slay the Spire will finally hit the mobile platform.

It’s finally happening my fellow Android users. Slay the Spire will soon be on our preferred mobile platform. Of course, after the game launched on iOS last summer, it was only a matter of time. That said, I’m very happy to no longer have to steal my wife’s iPhone to play the game on the toilet. Finally, on February 3, all mobile players can join hands in unity and play Slay the Spire as much as we want. Just make sure to wipe your hands first. Give the announcement from Humble Bundle a look below.

If you haven’t played Slay the Spire yet, what are you doing? It is one of the best translations of deckbuilding to the digital platform. Not just because it marries the classic board game mechanic with roguelikes, but also because it does everything so incredibly well. I’ve put hundreds of hours into various deckbuilding analog board games and, at this point, it’s kind of hard to go back. The game is just that good.

Of course, with the success of the game, there have been several other titles trying to cash in on that market. And while I quite like games like Monster Train and Dicey Dungeons, I still think Slay the Spire takes top billing. Developer MegaCrit just knocks the game out of the park in nearly every metric.

Slay the Spire is available now on iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It finally makes its way over to Android on February 3. Now, if only I had a time machine.
