Proximity Alert: Dragon Marked for Death

Dragon Marked for Death is the latest from Inti Creates, the developers behind numerous retro-style games, including Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, Blaster Master Zero, and Azure Striker Gunvolt. Dragon Marked for Death features the studio's pedigree of detailed colorful spritework and dense gameplay variety. The game stars four characters who have returned to find their homeland destroyed, and they cut a deal with the Astral Dragon (as you do) to get revenge. The Empress is able to use a sword and has a dragon's head as her left arm, which she can use to strike enemies directly or hit them with fireball attacks. The Warrior has a heavy axe and uses dragon scales to defend himself. The Shinobi (no, not that Shinobi) has twin daggers, and can make use of the dragon's legs and wings to jump up and glide around the environment. And the Witch uses the dragon's brains to tap into her powers and cast spells. The game is designed for multiple players to team up and take on baddies together, with each selecting a different character for melee-based brawler combat against an array of enemies and bosses.

The game is coming to Switch on December 13.
