Bleak Sword DX Brings Mesmerizing Diorama-Sized Battles to Switch in 2023
Bleak sword, but a bright future
Devolver Digital’s quest to level up your commute sees byte-sized developer more8bit bring their enthralling lo-fi battler Bleak Sword DX to Switch later this year.
Pure, thrilling and wonderfully cruel, Bleak Sword DX is a dark fantasy action game challenging warriors to fight their way through compact, cursed diorama battlefields. Newly updated for Switch, Bleak Sword DX expands on the critically acclaimed Apple Arcade version with elegant controls, three new game modes, and multiple gameplay and graphical improvements.
Through twelve tense and deeply atmospheric chapters, heroes must lift the curse of the legendary Bleak Sword by striking down all manner of horrifying creatures across an oppressive world wielding fierce weaponry and powerful magic.
This striking experience is scored by award-winning composer Jim Guthrie, with sound provided by famed designer Joonas Turner.
BRUTAL NEW GAME MODES
DX includes all original Bleak Sword chapters plus the three DLC chapters complete with new level and enemy layouts.
Randomizer throws players into a remixed version of the original game where levelling up or facing bosses in order is not guaranteed.
Boss Rush challenges players to face all 12 bosses back to back, with only one health bar.
DYNAMIC GAMEPLAY IMPROVEMENTS
New attacks, parries and counters compliment a streamlined control system designed specifically for Switch, while enhanced enemy AI makes them more unpredictable.
STUNNING GRAPHICAL ENHANCEMENTS
New post processing effects, adaptive depth of field and a series of filters give Bleak Sword DX a fresh lick of paint, while particle effects, foliage and weather enhancements bring a new level of atmosphere and immersion to the world.
