GN Version 5.0

The Taiwanese Ratings Board has once again given us a look at what's to come for Switch. These ratings have been great early indicators of titles that will hit the Switch, even if some of them take multiple months, if not years to actually released.

In the latest round of ratings, we find out that Book of Demons, F-117A Stealth Fighter, and Journey to the Savage Planet, are coming over to the Switch. Among those titles, Journey to the Savage Planet is the most elusive. We've seen multiple ratings and retailer listings for that game coming to Switch, yet we haven't heard a peep from the developer.

While we wait on confirmation of that game, we'll provide details on the others. Check out info on Book of Demons and F-177A Stealth Fighter below.

Book of Demons is a Hack & Slash Deck-building hybrid in which YOU decide the length of quests. Wield magic cards instead of weapons and slay the armies of darkness in the dungeons below the Old Cathedral. Save the terror-stricken Paperverse from the clutches of the Archdemon himself!

- Procedurally Generated Dungeons
- Roguelike Mode for fans of extreme challenge
- 70+ different types of monsters, with different traits and custom mechanics
- Dungeons & Streamers - Twitch and Mixer integration
- Monthly and all-time Leaderboards, 200+ Achievements

Book of Demons is the first installment of Return 2 Games - a series of original mid-core titles, inspired by the early golden days of PC gaming.

Cards and Deckbuilding

It’s not a card game, but items, spells, and skills are all expressed as cards. The strategy lies in adapting your hand to each situation. Cards can be upgraded with runes and you can find many variants with diverse bonuses. Legendaries are the most epic but hard to acquire.

Tailored sessions with Flexiscope

Book of Demons respects your time. It features the Flexiscope engine which allows you to divide the game into sessions of any size. It even learns your pace of gaming and predicts the time to complete the next session.

Unique Mechanics

Simplified movement and fight mechanics is where Book of Demons differs the most from other hack & slash games. There is often not enough time to click-remove all of the obstacles such as monster shields, enemy spells, poison, or knocked cards, so timing, card selection and order of execution are critical.

Hack & Slash in the world of Paperverse

Book of Demons takes place in Paperverse, a world that exists entirely inside a pop-up book. It’s a tale of good and evil about saving the world from the ultimate devilry. Sounds familiar? Inspired by the dark and gloomy atmosphere of the first Diablo game, Book of Demons is part tribute part parody of hack & slash classics.

Comfort of Gameplay

Many Book of Demons features were designed with gameplay comfort in mind. Points of interest are marked at the top of the screen and get revealed once you get closer. Your character leaves footprints, which can be used to track your way back or notice paths already visited without opening the map.

Challenging Endgame

On average it takes about 10 hours to complete the campaign with a single class, but maxing out a character and mastering all of the higher Freeplay difficulty levels and Quests takes much longer. The Roguelike mode offers another level of challenge with permadeath, restricted healing and even more obstacles to overcome.

The player takes control of a stealth fighter aircraft, and is required to pilot the craft on a series of missions to destroy ground targets. The equipment of the player's craft can be customized, with different missile and bombs available for different combat roles. Amazing weapons such as the X-Press missiles for taking down UFOs (which may or may not be terrestrial in origin) are bonus items in the game that will help the player.

Early levels of this game are based on actual conflicts, such as the 1986 United States bombing of Libya, the Gulf War, and the United States Invasion of Panama. Later missions involve theoretical conflicts in Korea and the Soviet Union, and move on to science-fiction events involving secret missions and UFOs.
