Kickstarter seems to be providing the gaming world with a plethora of games these days, giving developers the funds to realise ideas that many publishers may not want to take a risk on. Developer Hanakai Studio raised $212,194 on Kickstarter back in 2014 to make Prodigy, and we now have confirmation that it is heading to Nintendo Switch.
The game is a turn-based RPG full of tactical gameplay, intriguingly featuring NFC figurines and cards with a board to read them. Using these figures, players can take part in 1 on 1 battles that bring your physical items to life.
This “teaser” for the game shows off this idea if you want to see it in action;
The publisher for the Nintendo Switch version of the game – Forever Entertainment – has said that it will be publishing the “electronic” version of the game. This download version makes use of a “digital board tested through a closed Alpha,” but is supposedly “entirely compatible” with the physical version. What this means exactly is currently uncertain, but it’s an incredibly intriguing title nonetheless.
