Skeletal Avenger switches Roguelite’s “Head-Chucking” dungeon crawlers

Get this: You are a skeleton and are seeking revenge.Oh, and also: Your main weapon is you My skull..

looks fun? Now, it’s a pitch for Skeletal Avenger, a hack and slash roguelike game coming to Nintendo Switch on Thursday, November 4th. If you’re a roguelike dungeon crawler fan — as the genre certainly looks like it’s in a hot moment — you’re probably looking for a list of this feature:

  • Build your playstyle every time with over 50 perks and trinkets!
  • Decapitate to make a special attack: your hat determines the effect
  • Fight in four biomes: dungeon, sewer, dark cave, and wizard’s castle
  • 12 or more enemies with unique behavior
  • Explore procedurally generated handmade levels
  • Equip skeletons with increasingly powerful gear
  • Buy upgrades that empower you
  • Single player and 2-4 player local co-op
  • An infinite amount of quests to complete in NG + mode
  • Test your skills in the Arena Challenge

hat! Procgen! Coop! That’s all you can want from a roguelike dungeon crawler. Hades didn’t have a hat. No. All games deserve a hat.

Skeletal Avenger costs $ 16.99 at the Nintendo eShop.
