While there is a lot of similarities to Fire Emblem, Dark Deity is a great SRPG with amazing ideas and incredible gameplay. The graphics are also a sight to behold and perfectly balance retro and modern art styles. The game begins with a plot summary that establishes the context for the story’s conflict. This intro provides enough information to the player so they can understand without recounting the game’s entire lore.
Throughout the game, you follow Brookstead Military Academy recruits as they are thrust into a war that has been brewing for nearly one thousand years. You can check out our full review here.
The Nintendo Switch version gives the game a full makeover with beautiful environmental, graphical, and gameplay changes.

Furthermore, Dark Deity features over 30 fully voiced playable characters and more than 450 character interactions, which include romantic and platonic relationships.
Dark Deity will release on Nintendo Switch on Thursday, March 17, 2022. The game is currently out for now on PC.
