Portaltic.-The Spanish video game Blade of Darkness comes to Nintendo Switch after turning 20 years since its launch – Publimetro Perú

MADRID, 25 (Portaltic/EP)

Blade of Darkness, originally titled Blade – The Edge of Darkness, has established itself as an action-adventure classic that reappeared on the Steam platform last year and can now be purchased on the Nintendo eShop for 8.63 euros (14.39 euros after the launch offer period).

This updated version maintains the premise of saving the world from the forces of Chaos. To do this, it offers four playable characters: Tukaram, the barbarian; Naglfar the Dwarf; Sargon, the Knight; or Zoe, the Amazon. Each one has certain characteristics that imply different fighting abilities, as well as weaknesses and strengths.

In addition, it maintains its essence of bloody combat with combined attacks that allow actions such as cutting the limbs of opponents and using them as weapons. All of this developed in a dark fantasy world in which the protagonist will have to face orcs, trolls, demons and other malevolent creatures, in spaces such as tombs, fortresses, deserts or palaces.

Despite the renovation in many aspects of the game, it continues to reflect a low-resolution texture. However, real-time lighting and realistic shadow fluidity are used, as well as good set design.

Blade of Darkness, which was released for PC in 2001 and developed by Rebel Act Studios, was a milestone in the Spanish video game for becoming one of the most ambitious works of the moment.

In this sense, QubicGames has shown its satisfaction for bringing it back. “We are pleased to revive Blade of Darkness, an enduring classic that, at the time of its release, inspired many games in the action-adventure genre through its approach to combat,” the developer said on the Nintendo page.
