Gotta Protectors: Cart of Darkness English version still happening, physical version revealed, new trailer
Gotta Protectors: Cart of Darkness, otherwise known as Susume!! Mamotte Knight: Hime no Totsugeki Serenade, released on Switch in Japan back in 2019 though fans in the west have been waiting for the English version. It’s taken a few years, but there’s finally news to report.
8-4 is handling the English location of Gotta Protectors: Cart of Darkness. Additionally, Limited Run Games has confirmed plans for a physical release. There’ll even be a collector’s edition with a special box, soundtrack, art interview book, trading cards, and 8-bit sprite pins.
Here’s some information about Gotta Protectors: Cart of Darkness:
It’s another fine morning in Magicadia… except your castle has suddenly turned into a tank. And what’s this about a dark prophecy that could lead to the end of all video games? A CONFUSION IS YOU.
Choose your Gotta Protectors and get ready to hack, slash, and spell-sling your way through an epic campaign of over 100 thumb-blistering maps – plus dozens more available as optional DLC bonus chapters!
The rules are simple. Put Princess Lola into the castle to start it rolling down the tracks. At the end of the tracks is an enemy castle. Smash YOUR castle into THEIR castle to destroy it – but don’t let the enemies wipe out the Princess’s HP first!
