Portal Knights Keen Games 505 Games

Developed by Keen Games and published by 505 Games, the very fun sandbox RPG Portal Knights will be available to Nintendo Switch players on November 23, 2017.

RPG fans can get to experience Portal Knights on the Nintendo Switch as a digital download from the Nintendo eShop this month. It’ll be available for $29.99 USD. If you’re someone who likes a physical release, the title will be available at most major gaming retailers in North America on February 13, 2018. It too will have a price tag of $29.99 USD.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In Portal Knights, players will begin their journey as a Warrior, Mage or Ranger, then level-up their character and craft powerful gear and resources to defeat formidable monsters and epic bosses in real-time combat. Featuring four-person cooperative online multiplayer and two-player local split-screen action, Portal Knights allows players to work with friends or family to build structures, explore dungeons and overcome challenging perils together. Knights can travel between randomly generated 3D sandbox worlds on daring journeys, build a home to show off hard-earned treasures from explorations, and master tactical action combat and powerful talents on their quest to restore peace to the world.

The upcoming Nintendo Switch release of Portal Knights brings new features such as:

  • Touch Screen Support: Players can tap and swipe the Nintendo Switch touch screen to manage and organize their inventory faster and more efficiently.
  • Online Multiplayer: Play together and explore the expansive 3D sandbox world with friends and Nintendo Switch gamers around the world with up to four players in online multiplayer mode.
  • Wireless Play Support: Play in split screen up to four players by connecting two Nintendo Switch systems or in full screen up to four players by connecting four Nintendo Switch systems.

Furthermore, Nintendo Switch players will gain immediate access to the recently released Portal Knights v1.2 update, which includes new in-game features and content including Vacant Islands, new boss quests and vanity items, new enemies and more.

Portal Knights is also currently in development for mobile. It is available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store.
