Grimorio of Games has announced Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection, a 3D remake of the 2021-released Sword of the Necromancer for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (Steam). It will launch in 2024, prior to the release of the previously announced Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant.
A reimagining of the original monster-summoning dungeon crawler, Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection is based on Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant‘s engine, and offers new ways to battle, and renewed mechanics and systems, including the ability to customize the summoned monsters’ artificial intelligence. It will also feature remastered illustrations and voice acting in both English and Japanese, as well as new scenes that delve deeper in Tama and Koko’s tragic love story. Clearing Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection will also unlock bonuses in Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant once it is available, like the ability to summon the bosses of the remake as special summons.
Here is an overview of the game, via Grimorio of Games:
What would you do to bring back someone you love?
Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection is a dungeon-crawler action RPG with procedural elements where you can revive your defeated enemies to make them fight alongside you. This is a remake of Sword of the Necromancer (2021), now in 3D and with renewed mechanics!
Turn your foes into allies using the forbidden powers of the Sword of the Necromancer and help Tama reach the dungeon’s depths in order to gain enough power to bring Koko back from the dead.
Gather a little army of monsters, equip yourself with weapons and relics and level up to take on the guardians that stand between you and your objective.
Legend says that, deep within these mountains, a heretic decided to violate the will of the gods in order to achieve eternal life.
The heretic succeeded in this aberrant attempt, and created a tool for forbidden rituals that could grant immortality… and even bring back the dead.
Over the years and centuries many have tried to get that power for themselves, but all they found in the Necromancer’s crypt was their demise.
They say that the tool the Necromancer created is also a weapon…
The Sword of the Necromancer.
Tama is a former rogue that is tasked to escort the priestess Koko in her pilgrimage around the continent. During their travel Koko dies, and Tama carries the corpse to the Necromancer’s crypt, where legends say there dwells a power that may resurrect the dead.
Filled with despair, Tama will enter the dungeon with the aim of obtaining the forbidden power of necromancy, ignoring the dangers that lurk in the shadows.
