Loop Hero was a particularly pleasing reveal in Nintendo’s August Indie World broadcast, and the good news is that the Four Quarters-developed title has made its target of a release in time for the Holidays – it hits the eShop on 9th December.
It was a massive success when it arrived on PC earlier this year, becoming a bit of a darling in the streaming scene thanks to its smart premise and addictive gameplay. You have the challenge of navigating dangerous timeloop expeditions, and on each trek you can use cards to influence various things. You can give yourself buffs, or even add new enemies and dangers to give you a chance to earn more loot on the loop. It’s a risk / reward system, of course, as dying will set you back.
Below is some of the official description to help you get a handle on its concept.
Infinite Adventure: Select from unlockable character classes and deck cards before setting out on each expedition along a randomly generated loop path. No expedition is ever the same as the ones before it.
Plan Your Struggle: Strategically place building, terrain, and enemy cards along each loop to create your own dangerous path. Find balance between the cards to increase your chances of survival while recovering valuable loot and resources for your camp.
Loot and Upgrade: Strike down menacing creatures, recover stronger loot to equip on the fly and unlock new perks along the way.
Expand Your Camp: Turn hard-earned resources into campsite upgrades and gain valuable reinforcements with each completed loop along the expedition path.
Save the Lost World: Overcome a series of unholy guardian bosses over a grand saga to save the world and break the time loop of the Lich!
If it continues the strong momentum it found on PC this could certainly be a hit on the eShop. Let us know if it’s going on your wishlist.
