Earthlock backers will get Switch version if it ever happens

Several years ago I wrote about a new Kickstarter game called Earthlock: Festival of Magic that was targeting release on Wii U.

Since the Switch is out, many fans are concerned that Earthlock won’t arrive on Wii U.

Turn-Based RPG Earthlock: Festival of Magic Comes to PS4 on January 27

A PS4 price wasn’t given, but it’s $29.99 USD on PC and Xbox One.

Lead Artist Fredrik Dahl talked about how strategy is more important than grinding: In the traditional turn-based RPG, I don’t think it’s a big secret that there’s a lot of grinding going on – to level up in order to beat a boss, for example. We’ve tried to limit that by focusing more on a tactical experience. Usually you can get through the bosses in Earthlock by choosing the right strategy, getting your talent board set up, and having the right character pairings. Getting wiped out is more often than not a case of having the wrong party setup. Dahl continued by discussing the READ FULL…
