Game Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchJan 31, 2019

Developer: INTI CREATES CO., LTD.

Genres: Action, RPG

Dragon Marked For Death is a side-scrolling 2D action RPG that can played solo or with up to four players in local or online multiplayer.
You play as the survivors of the Dragonblood Clan who set out to take revenge on the Kingdom of Medius, who destroyed their home and captured the Dragonblood Oracle, Amica. To obtain the power they need to enact their revenge, they forge a pact with the Astral Dragon Atruum.

Use your newly acquired powers to take on quests from villagers and raise your status in the kingdom. How you perform in these quests can have a direct effect on the game's final outcome.

Quests aren't all about defeating enemies, though. You'll guard a ship's passengers from monsters, search for hidden treasure, rescue a princess from a castle under siege, and a lot more!

Choose from four playable characters (Empress, Warrior, Shinobi, or Witch) and defeat your enemies to gain experience and level up. You'll receive points as you level up that can increase your attack power, defense, agility, and other parameters. Customize your character in a way that best suits your individual playstyle!

Team up with up to four players in co-op multiplayer action via local wireless, or go online with Nintendo Switch Online and use worldwide matchmaking system to play with adventurers all over the world. By strategizing and working together with your party, you'll be able to achieve even greater results and reap even better rewards!

Get ready to experience the unique, dark fantasy world of the Dragonblood Clan in this intense 2D action-RPG!

Dragon Marked for Death is an eye-catching action platformer that is excellent with friends but can be frustrating alone.

Despite being in development for eight or more years, Dragon Marked for Death could have actually used more time in the oven. I'm sure there is a great game buried somewhere in there but between its lack of balance, less-than-ideal controls, boring levels, and unfortunate co-op requirements, the end product isn't nearly up to the level of the rest of Inti Creates's catalog.

While I love the moment to moment action, the pacing can still get downright glacial at times. If you’re hoping for an RPG experience, you’ll be rather let down. As far as action platformers go, however, Dragon Marked For Death is a ripping good time.

Dragon Marked for Death is one of the most rewarding sidescrolling games I have played ever, and it’s easily recommended due to its immense polish.
