Mobile game Guardian Tales is now available on Nintendo Switch

The Guardian Tales Nintendo Switch version is now available, and it promises to build upon what makes the original mobile game so good

If you happen to be a Guardian Tales fan, you’re in for a treat as the retro-style mobile game is now available on Nintendo Switch, and yes, it’s still free-to-play. Even if you’re yet to play this title, what better way to experience it than on console, especially since it takes inspiration from games such as Nintendo’s A Link to the Past?

Of course, there are numerous benefits if you play the Guardians Tales Switch version, as not only is immersion better due to the larger screen, but the JoyCons make the game more accessible through fluent controls. Oh, and there’s a customisation option that allows you to tailor the controls to better suit your play style.

Another difference for the Switch version is that those who like to engage in PvP can do so on a single server, and we imagine that this is a great piece of news for people that want to meet other players. Naturally, you can still enjoy the single-player story mode, join guilds, customise your floating castle known as Heavenhold, and collect a roster of heroes and weapons.

  • 100k gold
