Yesterday saw us treated to the news that The Swords of Ditto will be releasing on PS4 and PC on the 24th April. Developer onebitbeyond and publisher Devolver Digital also treated us to a new gameplay trailer (below).
The Swords of Ditto looks to brings its own unique take on the rogue-like adventure genre. The dreaded permadeath is every present, but although death means the end of your adventure, this isn’t in complete vain. Every hero you play as in The Swords of Ditto adds to the overall lore of the game, meaning that when they die their impact on the world lives on; different NPC will remember meeting them, environmental object you interacted with will continue to change the shape of the land, maybe they’ll even write a song about you?
As you may have guessed from the title, the game revolves around a pretty important sword. Not only is this sword the most powerful in the last, it also stores the progress of your abilities and powers, making The Swords of Ditto more of a rogue-lite rather than a full roguelike.
The Swords of Ditto is set in a fantasy land full of dungeons to explore, lairs to be found and evil witch towers to destroy. The main story sees you set off on a quest to rid the land of evil witch Mormo. If you succeed in this task the world around you will lighten up and become a happy place to explore. However, failing to overcome Mormo will see the lands slip deeper into darkness.
The Swords of Ditto feature local multiplayer so you can set off on writing your own adventure with a friend. As previously mentioned, The Swords of Ditto is releasing on PS4 and PC on the 24th April. To see the game in action then check out the new gameplay trailer below.
