Today, publisher Dear Villagers and solo developer Benjamin Kiefer – otherwise known as BenStar – announced that Revita is making the jump to Switch. The twin-stick roguelite platformer will release on April 21, 2022.
Revita has been on Steam Early Access over the past year. It’s seen lots of additions including new starting guns, NPCs, enemies, relics, hats, and levels. All of this will be included in the Switch version at launch.
Here’s a rundown as to what the game has to offer:
In Revita players must climb an ominous Clocktower through a series of procedurally-generated rooms and past challenging boss fights on their way to reclaiming their lost memory. Along the way players will be able to exchange health for randomised upgrades as the game dares them to live on a razor’s edge!
- Trade life for power
Exchange health for power in fast-paced glass cannon gameplay
- Unique runs
Battle through an almost infinite variety of combat encounters in procedurally generated rooms
- Endless character builds
Twin stick shooting, dashing and wall sliding are just the beginning – find power-ups and items on each run
- Tweak your game
An extensive set of options lets you tweak Revita to your playstyle – slow down time, set an outline colour for enemies to make them easier to track, or choose the level of aim assist that feels right for you
- Arm yourself with multiple weapons
Use a variety of guns! Arm yourself with a laser gun, charge gun, machine gun, shotgun, or rocket launcher.
- A mysterious world
Explore an underground subway line infested with monsters and filled with colourful characters who will help you on your journey.
- Reclaim lost memories
A nameless child with no memories awakens in a mysterious Clocktower that is connected by a metro system with only a vague sense of purpose, hoping to find answers at the top.
- HATS! Many, many hats. All the hats, really – to cover all heads and all styles!
