Ysbryd Games and Witching Hour Studios have today announced that Masquerada: Songs and Shadows will launch on Nintendo Switch next month. You’ll be able to pick it up for yourself on 9th May.

We first heard about this one coming to Switch way back in August 2017, when the PS4 launch for the game came alongside an announcement of an upcoming Switch port. Here’s a little PR to give you some more info on what you can expect from the game:

A friend’s disappearance leads Cicero Gavar on a journey through a fantastical world inspired by Renaissance-era Venice and brought to life in a vibrant, hand-drawn art style. 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.

We’ve also managed to get our hands on some screenshots for you, specifically from the Switch version of the game. Check them out below.

As noted above, this one fights its way to Switch on 9th May and will be priced $19.99 – the same as on all other platforms.
