Loop Hero is one of the biggest breakout successes of the year so far, having sold more than 500k copies in its first week of release. Developer Four Quarters and publisher Devolver Digital’s creative roguelike RPG casts you into an endless loop around a deadly track. You then have to plan out the road ahead using various cards in order to earn decent loot and ultimately survive. It’s a tricky balancing act that has clearly hooked a great many players.

PCGamesN, our sister site, showered the game with praise in its Loop Hero review, concluding that it “successfully borrows from a surprising range of genres to create a refreshing new twist on some very old RPG ideas.” It’s the sort of elegant, well-executed title that seems perfectly suited to mobile and Nintendo Switch.

Well in great news, Nintendo and Devolver Digital revealed that the title will be arriving on Nintendo Switch on December 9, so just squeezing into before 2022. Nintendo fans have been eagerly waiting for this title ever since its PC release, so hopefully, the stellar title finds a new audience on Switch soon.

You can see the announcement as well as a short reveal trailer below, which will hopefully tide us all over as we wait for December.

While that’s not a solid confirmation of a mobile port, it’s still comforting to know that these discussions are already taking place. If you’re not the patient sort, you really ought to check out our comprehensive lists of the best mobile RPGs and best Switch RPGs around.
