The Last Spell, a tactical RPG with rougelite elements set within a pixel-art aesthetic, is finally getting a 1.0 release date slated for sometime in Q1 of 2023 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Here’s everything you need to know about the game. 

The Last Spell, developed by Ishtar Games, was released in Early Access on June 2021 to Very Positive reviews on Steam. According to publishers, The Arcade Crew, The Last Spell is now getting a full release sometime in Q1 of 2023.

The Early-Access iteration of this turn-based strategic rougelite captured players’ attention with its retro aesthetic, gory violence, and increasingly challenging difficulty. In The Last Spell, players lead a group of heroes defending against hordes of ravenous, undead beasts. The goal is to protect your Haven with various weapons, skills, buildings, and tactics. 

While the game looks simple enough, it’s surprisingly deep, with style combat and a complex skill and spell system. For a 2D pixel-art game, The Last Spell is remarkably gory, with blood effects, disembowelment animations, and bone-crunching audio.
