Neowiz today announced that Dandy Ace is headed to Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Xbox consoles on September 28th. The PlayStation version of Dandy Ace is still in production and will be released at a later date. Both the Xbox and the Nintendo Switch editions will be released with brand new never-released content, which is also coming to the existing Steam version in parity with the console launch.
Part Action RPG and part Roguelite, Dandy Ace’s core mechanic is in its extremely versatile skill system. Based on the magic cards that Ace has up his sleeve, the combination and powers of the skills can change depending on the equipped order. Each time Ace journeys into the Cursed Mirror, trapped there by the evil Green-Eyed Magician Lele, the player has a different selection to choose from, enabling countless possibilities for different builds and playstyles.
With the launch of the console version, nearly a dozen new cards have been added, along with a bevy of new trinkets to unlock and equip as Ace faces off against Lele. “We were thrilled by the reception of Dandy Ace when it launched on PC last year,” said Don Hudson, Product Manager at Neowiz. “But we always knew that Ace and Lele would feel even better on consoles. Mad Mimic has made something truly unique and mesmerizing in Dandy Ace and we hope players the world over find something to love.” “We’re so very proud of Dandy Ace,” said Luis Sampaio, COO of Mad Mimic. “The game was envisioned from the start for consoles as well as PC, so we’re thrilled to finally be letting fans on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch take their crack at the Cursed Mirror!” What Is Dandy Ace?
