Dandy Ace is just a few days away on Switch, as publisher Neowiz and developer Mad Mimic shared a final release date today. You’ll be able to pick up the game on September 28.

As a reminder, Dandy Ace is a magical action RPG with roguelite elements.

There’ll be a different selection each time Ace journeys into the Cursed Mirror, trapped there by the evil Green-Eyed Magician Lele.
