Team17 and Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team have today launched Metroidvania bullet hell The Knight Witch on Nintendo Switch, Steam, and GOG, with the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10 versions coming Friday 2nd December. Fusing fast-paced shoot ‘em up combat with Metroidvania mechanics and deck-building elements, The Knight Witch follows Rayne – the titular knight witch and part of a coven of superhero-like protectors – as she battles through waves of unrelenting enemies to save her home from a devastating war golem invasion and defeat the mysterious villain that commands them.
As Rayne, players will explore the once peaceful metropolis of Dungeonidas, fighting enemies that have invaded the city’s labyrinthine streets, and wielding devastating Knight Witch powers. As the story unfolds, Rayne’s playstyle can be fully customized through a deck-building system that includes over 40 unique spell cards, while opportunities to speak to the citizens of the beleaguered city via press conferences will present the moral challenge of telling the truth about how the war is going… or not.
The Knight Witch offers up a series of accessibility and assistance options so knight witches of all abilities can help save the kingdom. Alongside an intuitive auto-aim system to quickly lock on and destroy enemies, and a main story navigation system that points players through the city’s streets, there are a series of ‘cheats’ that can be unlocked that allow players to customize their gameplay experience.
