Death’s Door is one of the best indies of the year (and games period) but only Xbox and PC players have enjoyed it. That changes next month when the charming action game migrates to PlayStation consoles and Switch.
This charming adventure puts you in control of a crow who serves as a soul-reaper for a bureaucratic organization of crows. They govern all things death, but when your assigned soul gets stolen, the adventure pits you at odds against characters who have managed to cheat death for centuries.
Gameplay consists of top down action where you cut through waves of challenging enemies and over-the-top bosses using a small arsenal of weapons. Outside of battle, you’ll explore dungeons across varied biomes connected by a secret-laden overworld. I scored Death’s Door a 9 out of 10 review and wrote that it “marries fine-tuned hack n’ slash action with a cool world ripe with secrets to unravel. The result is an entertaining, densely-packed trip to the other side.”
Look for Death’s Door to hit PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Switch on November 23. As a cool bonus, those who pre-order get Titan Souls, developer Acid Nerve’s previous title, for free.
