Knights of Pen and Paper has previously been released on a number of different platforms and therefore has had time to become a solid title with stable performance. This is true for the Switch really as well which runs super smooth throughout the whole experience offering minimal loading times as well. In handheld mode the title supports touch controls which make it a good choice for playing on the go along with looking great on the big screen.

One of the only complaints for the title, even though it is so small, is that for a title so reliant on menu navigation, it can be hard at times to see which button you have highlighted. It is something you will get use to as you play but might be an issue for some, so bare it in mind.

Overall, Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Deluxier Edition is a solid addition to the Switch library and one that fans of role-playing and tabletop games will surely love. Even if you have played the title before I highly recommend picking it up to experience all the content it has to offer and for the brilliant humor found throughout.



Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Deluxier Edition is a fantastic title with tons of content and humor to be found throughout. Do yourself a favor and pick this title up.
