Book of Demons Getting a Physical Release for Switch by Super Rare Games

Super Rare Games has announced the limited physical release of Book of Demons exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Their latest release comes as a result of a partnership between 505 Games and Super Rare Games. This is the first time that Book of Demons is coming to Nintendo Switch in physical form along with all of the goodies offered by Super Rare Games.

Since this is a limited release, Super Rare will produce and sell only 4000 copies of the title and pre-orders for the game will go live today, February 17, 2022, at 10 am PT. The pre-orders will be exclusively at the Super Rare Games website.  The release will include all current content of Book of Demons on the cartridge along with interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and trading cards. All orders will ship soon after they go live for sale.

Book of Demons is a deckbuilding hack and slash hybrid where you get to choose the length of your own adventure. You are able to wield magic cards and slay the armies of darkness in the Old Cathedral dungeons. Your goal is to save the terror-stricken Paperverse from the clutches of the Archdemon.

Key features of Book of Demons include:

  • Hack & Slash in the world of Paperverse – Taking place in Paperverse, a world that exists entirely inside a pop-up book, this is 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.
  • Cards and Deckbuilding – While not a card game, items, spells, and skills are all expressed as cards. Assess and adapt your hand based on the situation. Upgrade your cards with runes and discover many variants with diverse bonuses.
  • Tailored sessions with Flexiscope – A game that respects your time? Use the Flexiscope engine to divide your game into sessions of any size. It even learns your pace of gaming and predicts the time to complete the next session!
  • Unique Mechanics – The game sets itself apart from most other hack & slash games with its simplified movement and fight mechanics.
  • Comfort of Gameplay – Designed with gameplay comfort in mind, some of the features include: marking points of interest at the top of the screen and revealing them once you get closer, and visible 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.

Since this is a limited release like their previous releases, you will need to be quick and order your copy when the pre-orders go live in order to secure your copy. Previous releases by Super Rare Games include Caveblazers, Super Crush KO, and The Lion’s Song along with The Flowers Collector’s Physical Edition. Super Rare Originals also released their first title Grapple Dog so make sure that you check out its review as well.
