City of Brass, the incredibly stylish hack-and-slash title from Uppercut Games, is out now on a new platform, the Switch.
Speaking of Uppercut Games, the studio was created in 2011 by three developers who formerly worked on BioShock and XCOM. The three worked within the now defunct 2K Australia and 2K Marin on BioShock, BioShock 2, and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Those three talented people are Ed Orman, Andrew James and Ryan Lancaster, and now, they’re bringing their latest game to Switch.
City of Brass pulls influences, storylines and characters from the adventures of Arabian Nights and creates a stylized world out of them. This adventure title is filled with danger for the titular thief character, but there’s the promise of great reward keeping them going. Players will have to navigate through the legendary city of the damned in order to access said treasure, and things won’t be easy. There’s legions of the undead, gas traps and other mechanical nightmares in order to reach said treasure.
The game also includes a ton of options for how you want to play. Play the thieving Fool, vengeful Traveler, spear-wielding Soldier, knife-throwing Brigand, the magical Hellion or the crossbow-toting Revenant! Each character comes with their own weapons, equipment, strengths and weaknesses that accommodate a variety of play-styles.
One interesting tidbit about the Switch version is that it contains all of the previously released characters in one handy version. But that’s not all, there’s also a ton of quality of life improvements, bug fixes and other helpful additions included in this version from the start. Safe to say, but the Switch version is probably the best version of City of Brass there is. Now including the added portability of the Switch, you can take the stylish fun of this game on the go.
You can check out the launch trailer for this port below. City of Brass is now available across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. You can learn more about the game by going to the official website.
