Barcelona-based indie developer Grimorio of Games is announcing that Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection, the 3D remake of the original Sword of the Necromancer is coming soon to PC and consoles. Previously planned as a stretch goal in the sequel’s Kickstarter campaign, this remake will now instead be released prior to Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant to give more time to the latter’s development.
Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection will be a reimagining of the original monster-summoning dungeon crawler game, which featured top-down pixel art graphics. Based on Revenant‘s engine, players will be able to relive Tama’s quest to resurrect her lover in 3D, with exciting new ways to battle and renewed mechanics and systems, including the possibility of customizing the summoned monsters’ AI. This remake will also feature remastered high quality illustrations and voice acting (both in English and Japanese) and new scenes to delve deeper in Tama and Koko’s tragic love story.
Beating Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection will also unlock rewards in Revenant once it’s available, like the possibility of summoning the bosses of the remake as special summons (the titular Revenants). Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection will be developed for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
