The Nightmare Realm awaits Xbox One and PS4 players as Team17 detail and date Crown Trick.
Having launched last year on Nintendo Switch and PC through Steam, Crown Trick is Team17 and NExT Studios’ adventure roguelike mixed with turn-based combat, and it is now coming to Xbox One and PS4 with an August 31st 2021 release set.
It’s then when the Nightmare Realm will open, as Crown Trick sends players to guide protagonist Elle on a perilous journey through procedurally generated dungeons, carefully navigating unique enemies and traps that only move when Elle does, all thanks to the unique synchronous turn-based mechanic. This will mean you will need to strategically plan each move in order to survive, using a combination of skills, Familiars, and weapons in order to escape the Nightmare Realm.
August 31st should allow for new players to get involved, but available from today, the free Requiem of Elements downloadable content sees Nintendo Switch players invited to once again venture into the labyrinthian dungeons of Crown Trick. This new update includes ‘Dungeons of the Deep’, a new endless game mode that tests players ability to stay alive by providing a gauntlet of randomly generated traps and enemies to survive. The DLC is already available on Steam and also includes new weapons, relics, Familiars, skills, and achievements.
The key features of Crown Trick includes:
- Engaging strategic gameplay: Monsters and traps move only when the player moves; carefully thought-out strategies are key to escaping the labyrinthine dungeon
- Fight how you want: Create and develop a unique combat style with 40+ active skills, 60+ passive abilities, 30+ usable items, and 170+ special relics, all of which create different ways to cut through enemy encounters
- Learn from enemies: Gather elite ‘Familiar’ skills by overcoming enemies ready to unleash on others deeper in the dungeon
- Different dungeons every time: The procedurally generated maze ensures players have unique experiences every time they enter The Nightmare Realm.
