Hades-Like Roguelite RPG Dandy Ace Launches in March on PC
Dandy Ace, the upcoming roguelike action-RPG with shades of Hades, arrives for PC via Steam on March 25. It will arrive for Nintendo Switch, as well as PlayStation and Xbox consoles, this summer.
Developed by Mad Mimic and published by Neowiz, the game sees you take on the role of a magician fighting their way to defeat the Green-Eyed Illusionist in an ever-shifting palace. The mechanical intrigue comes from the game’s approach to attacks – on every run, you’ll pick up magical cards to slot into your attacks, each with different abilities. But every card can also be used as an upgrade for an existing attack (a poisonous explosion attack might add a poison effect to another ability, for example) – Mad Mimic promises over a thousand combinations of cards, all-in-all.
Check out a new trailer below:
When it launches, the game will come with a bespoke Twitch mode, in which streamers can request aid from viewers (although the viewers can cause them more problems, should they wish). For those interested, the game has a demo out now on Steam.
Publisher Neowiz recently released retro roguelite Skul the Hero Slayer, which we awarded an 8/10 review, saying it was “an original take on a well-established genre, using its novel head-swapping mechanic to put a plethora of unique playable characters front and center.”
