Steam success Loop Hero launches next month on Nintendo Switch

Loop Hero will follow up its successful Steam debut with a release for Nintendo Switch on 9th December.

Loop Hero is an endless RPG adventure in which the hero walks along a loop, battling monsters along the way. A deck-building mechanic allows you to spawn enemies, buildings and terrain, as well as build bases.
