They should. I still can't believe the original release was such a limited print.

They are rereleasing a lot of games on the Switch (The Witcher 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and Black Flag, Star Wars Jedi Knight 2,...) so it's possible.

They decided to cover Death's Gambit on the Bonfireside Chat podcast. Hearing that it's a Soulslike Metroidvania, I decided to check it out. There's a few neat mechanics that are very generous to the player. Like you can sacrifice a healing item for bonus damage at the resting area. And when you fight the boss, you get a percentage of the boss xp depending on how much damage is done.

You can also see the different boss stages as segments on the boss life, which seems like a smart way to do multiphase bosses.

Currently playing Ys Chronicles 1. Yes, I know it's old.
Something happening on a show turns into a board comment.

Far Cry 5. Once that's done, it's straight to New Dawn.
Introducing Keisuke Watanabe to a notable voice actor of Freeza & a TTRPG player/actress is likely my crowning achievement in 2020.
