Team17 Announces Deck-Building Action-Platformer The Knight Witch for Consoles & PC

Today, acclaimed publisher Team17 and developer Super Mega Team announced a partnership to bring their deck-building Metroidvania, The Knight Witch, to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.

Accompanying the announcement is a new trailer showcasing the 2D action-adventure title in all its glory. Go ahead and take a gander down below:

As you can see in the footage above, The Knight Witch is a slick and fluid 2D Metroidvania that blends arcade shoot-’em-up action with light RPG mechanics, combined with some deck-building gameplay for good measure.

You take on the role of the titular Knight Witch as you explore the Lost City of Dungeonidas, while trying your best to repel the attack of a mysterious threat led by a bunch of dastardly Golems.

No concrete release date has been locked in as of yet, but Team17 promises that the game will launch later in 2022.

For more information, here’s a rundown courtesy of an official press release we received earlier today:

With over 30 unique spell cards to choose from in a magic deck-building system, and Knight abilities to upgrade and improve, players can customise Rayne’s build to fit their playstyle, taking down the invading golems in the most effective way. Like other Knight Witches, Rayne thrives off the love and adoration of Dungeonidas’ citizens, growing ever stronger with their continued support – players can choose to capitalise on this, lying to the adoring denizens for their own means, or they can be honest, sharing the painful truth to the masses.

The Knight Witch Key Features:

Shoot ‘Em Up Spellcasting Sorcery: Encounter evil foes and choose whether to wield Rayne’s magic or use her weapons and wits to take them down.

Body and Mind: The Knight Witch Duality: Customize Rayne’s unique playstyle, upgrading Knight abilities for a more fast-paced shoot ‘em up experience, or strengthen Witch magic and explore different deckbuilding strategies with over 30 unique spell cards to choose from.

Build Trust & Make Lasting Bonds: Knight Witches become stronger with gratitude and trust and can earn it in many ways, not all of which are sincere – the choice to choose popularity over honesty lies in the players hands.

Forward-Thinking Accessibility: The Knight Witch has been designed as a Metroidvania without barriers; with an intuitive on/off ‘auto-aim’ system, world-altering ‘cheats’ and a focused main story navigation system – players will never get lost and can tailor the game to their level of play.

Super Mega Team: The Knight Witch is brought to you by a veteran team of developers behind titles such as RiME, Moonlighter, and Plants VS Zombies.

The Knight Witch launches later this year for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
