    Darkest Dungeon will launch for the Nintendo Switch via the eShop on January 18 for $24.99. The Crimson Court DLC and The Shieldbreaker DLC will be available at launch for $9.99 and $3.99 respectively.

     Here is an overview of the game:

    Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic RPG about the stresses of dungeon crawling. You will lead a band of heroes on a perilous side-scrolling descent, dealing with a prodigious number of threats to their bodily health, and worse, a relentless assault on their mental fortitude! Five hundred feet below the earth you will not only fight unimaginable foes, but famine, disease, and the stress of the ever-encroaching dark. Darkest Dungeon focuses on the humanity and psychological vulnerability of the heroes and asks: What emotional toll does a life of adventure take?

    Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. You’ll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.

    Darkest Dungeon is not a game where every hero wins the day with shiny armor and a smile. It is a game about hard trade-offs, nearly certain demise, and heroic acts.

    Key Features:

    • The Affliction System – battle not only monsters, but stress! Contend with paranoia, masochism, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks!
    • Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style
    • Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters
    • Narration system to celebrate your successes…and failures
    • 16 (and counting!) playable hero classes, including Plague Doctor, Hellion, and even the Leper!
    • Camp to heal wounds or deliver inspiring speeches.
    • Rest your weary, shell-shocked characters in town at the Tavern or the Abbey to keep their stress in check.
    • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including character permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay
