Iconoclasts is back on Switch

Iconoclasts is back on Switch

Iconoclasts is a game we covered a few months ago, just before its original release on PC, PS4 and Vita, but since it is now finally available on Nintendo Switch, we tought we'd quickly sum up why it's a game to play this summer. Enjoy the videos!
Note: The second video shows a boss after around 5 hours of gameplay.


On the plus side


+ Beautiful visuals and fantastic OST
+ The game world is a lot more interesting than you'd expect...
+ ... which also applies to the story
+ Another excellent metroidvania on Nintendo Switch
+ Bosses, bosses, bosses
+ Fun to play and smooth whether played on the TV or in handheld mode
+ Expect between 10 to 12 hours for your first playthrough


On the downside


- Some will find the game a bit too chatty
- The upgrade system is a bit disappointing

Gameplay #1 (Switch)

    GriftGFX I'm not confident that they have the sense to make that pivot. Ubisoft sure did, and gamers have reaped the benefits of it. (17 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @b0vril: Yeah.. or even not a cycle in the case of BR. Just run an endless service like PUBG or FN. (17 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Fuck sake, don't give the greedy cunts ideas. (17 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril you mean as seperate titles on a cycle? (17 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @b0vril: I don't think so. My hottake is that there should be: Traditional COD, a full on zombies game, and BR. That would feel a lot more varied than COD after COD after COD. (17 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril yea, it'll be interesting to see what they do. And are they done with Story modes now? (17 Hours ago)
