Masquerada: Songs and Shadows emerges on Switch in May
Ysbryd Games and Witching Hour Studios have announced that their tactical RPG—Masquerada: Songs and Shadows—will be released for the Nintendo Switch on May 9th.
Masquerada features a fantasy world inspired by Renaissance-era Venice is presented in a vibrant, hand-drawn art style that looks to be a good match for both docked and portable play on the Nintendo Switch. In addition to the visuals, the game also features the voice talents of Matt Mercer, Felicia Day, Jennifer Hale, Dave Fennoy, and Ashly Burch (all of whom have far too many impressive credentials to list here).
As for the game, players will control Cicero Gavar and his companions on their journey to discover what’s behind a friend’s disappearance.
Cicero will crush foes in real-time combat with tactical pause, combining his control over the elements with those of his companions on their adventure through a society at war with itself.
Only the wealthy and powerful can lay claim to Mascherines, masks that grant magical powers, though they have grown even more elusive in the five-year civil war that has destroyed many of the precious artifacts. Cicero’s party will unearth how intimately the secrets of their pasts are intertwined with the war, their society, and the history of the Mascherines.
Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is already available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows and Mac for $19.99. The Switch version will retail for the same price when it becomes available on May 9th.
