Darkest Dungeon II goes for a roadtrip on the Nintendo Switch starting July 15

Red Hook Studios made an appearance at the June 2024 Nintendo Direct event announcing that Darkest Dungeon II will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on July 15. They previously shared that it would be coming to PlayStation platforms on that same date. Pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch version will open up on the eShop later today.

Along with the base Darkest Dungeon II game, the release will come with The Binding Blade DLC that features two new heroes, a special questline, and more additions. Both the base game and The Binding Blade DLC can be bought together with the Oblivion bundle, though they will be sold separately too.

The development studio recently made a Steam blog post celebrating the title's first anniversary. Some of the future content coming to Darkest Dungeon II will be its Kingdoms game mode, hero skins, and mod support though there is no indication if these will be coming to its console versions.

Watch the Switch announcement trailer below, along with more information.

Form a party, board your stagecoach and set off across the decaying landscape on a last gasp quest to avert an apocalypse in this roguelike roadtrip of the damned. Choose from 12 playable heroes and journey across five campaigns, each featuring its own terrifying challenges to face. Play the game with touchscreen controls, customize your difficulty with thematic modifiers, discover 10 companion pets that confer various bonuses onto you and explore an extensive progression hub called The Altar of Hope. In addition to the base game, The Binding Blade DLC – featuring two new heroes, a special questline and more – will also be available as part of the Oblivion Edition. Darkest Dungeon II launches on Nintendo Switch July 15. Pre-orders begin later today on Nintendo eShop.
