Iconoclasts is back on Switch

Iconoclasts is back on Switch

Iconoclasts is a game we covered a few months ago, just before its original release on PC, PS4 and Vita, but since it is now finally available on Nintendo Switch, we tought we'd quickly sum up why it's a game to play this summer. Enjoy the videos!
Note: The second video shows a boss after around 5 hours of gameplay.


On the plus side


+ Beautiful visuals and fantastic OST
+ The game world is a lot more interesting than you'd expect...
+ ... which also applies to the story
+ Another excellent metroidvania on Nintendo Switch
+ Bosses, bosses, bosses
+ Fun to play and smooth whether played on the TV or in handheld mode
+ Expect between 10 to 12 hours for your first playthrough


On the downside


- Some will find the game a bit too chatty
- The upgrade system is a bit disappointing

Gameplay #1 (Switch)

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I want to upgrade but my 980 still runs everything I'm playing this year fairly well. I can't justify the 2080 given the small step up in DX11 performance vs the 1080ti and don't want an old card. (7 Hours ago)
