Darkest Dungeon Nintendo Switch Release Date Announced

Nintendo's Switch is the latest console to get its own version of Red Hook Studio's Darkest Dungeon. An announcement on the game's official website informs us that starting January 18, 2018, we'll be able to purchase the side-scrolling dungeon crawler on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $24.99 and then swiftly descend into the depths of madness in an attempt to atone for our eldritch horror-summoning Ancestor's transgressions. And if that monumental task alone isn't enough for you, you'll also be able to pick up the Crimson Court and the Shieldbreaker DLC when the game launches. Here are some additional details:
