A trio of titles are set to join the Switch library early 2019; the action-adventure, Nile-bound Sphinx And The Cursed Mummy, comical, point-and-click, fantasy themed puzzler The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 and a crime noir featuring a portly Swiss Constable in The Raven Remastered.
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
Sphinx debuted over a decade ago on the Gamecube and PS2, well loved and praised for its memorable cast of characters, puzzles and weapon enhancements. As Demi-God Sphinx, you brawl your way through tombs and dunes accompanied by the more stealth inclined Tutankhamen, Mummy and warrior forming a tagteam duo. Hunting for stolen magical crowns in a bid to overthrow tyranical god of chaos Set, the pair use their skills to traipse through tombs, traversing treacherous traps and on occasion, Sphinx transforming into his namesake to decimate foes. Inspired by the Zelda franchise, old fans and newcomers can take scarab hunting on the go when the title launches on the Switch.
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
Our next title is The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, a crowdfunded point-and-click game that pokes all kinds of fun at the fantasy genre whilst referencing and parodying everything from Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter to Discworld and Game of Thrones. As novice Gnome Mage Wilbur, Elf Princess Ivo, common yet narcissistic Human Nate and strange, furry, alien abomination “Critter”, the party solve all manner of puzzle whilst trying to save the kingdom of Aventasia. With an orchestral soundtrack and a campaign boasting well over 20 hours of gameplay, any fan of of the fantasy genre, no matter how remote, would be hard pressed not to pick up this wildly self aware, conundrum heavy adventure.
The Raven Remastered
Finally The Raven Remastered takes us to 1963 London, a stolen ruby, a single raven feather left in its place, the beginnings of a mystery begging to be solved. As middle-aged, Swiss Constable Anton Jakob Zellner, players are thrust into the heart of the case, something our Constable is only familiar with through crime novels. Nothing is as it seems, no one can be trusted and The Raven is always several steps ahead, how will you bring the masked murderer to justice? From a museum in Cairo, to a train through the Swiss Alps, multiple filmic locations exist complete with fully voiced characters and updated visuals and animations. For fans of film noir and murder mysteries with a twist, accompany our unlikely hero as he bumbles his way to the truth.
All titles will be available early 2019 both digitally and physically, slated at £27.99 each
