Dragon Marked for Death looks like another gem from Inti Creates

Now targeting winter 2018 on Nintendo Switch

I’ve had my eye on Dragon Marked for Death since August 2017, and even with a new winter 2018 launch window announced for the four-player co-op action-RPG, my interest hasn’t faltered. This looks like yet another gem from the crew at Inti Creates (Mega Man Zero, Mega Man ZX, Azure Striker Gunvolt).

Co-op support is online and local, so we’re set there. As this story trailer suggests, you’ll play as a member of the Dragonblood Clan seeking revenge against the Medius Empire. There’s the Empress, Warrior, Witch, and Shinobi (dibs), each of which have their own complementary attacks and abilities.

“Quests will send the players on a variety of adventures big and small, such as defeating monsters, defending a convoy, searching for treasure, or rescuing a noble. By playing their roles well and dividing tasks, skilled players will discover efficient and speedy ways of completing quests [in multiplayer].”

That basic loop mixed with leveling means Marked for Death is going to dominate my Switch this winter.
