Inspired by classic RPG tropes, Loop Hero is an adventure essentially writes by themselves. Featuring strategic mechanics and endless gameplay, the game caters to retro enthusiasts and role playing enthusiasts alike. Here’s a short synopsis, courtesy of Steam:

“The Lich has thrown the world into a timeless loop and plunged its inhabitants into never ending chaos. Wield an expanding deck of mystical cards to place enemies, buildings, and terrain along each unique expedition loop for the brave hero. Recover and equip powerful loot for each class of hero for their battles and expand the survivors’ camp to reinforce each adventure through the loop. Unlock new classes, new cards, and devious guardians on your quest to shatter the endless cycle of despair.”

Sure, Loop Hero doesn’t place you directly in the main character’s shoes. However, it will be your job to ensure their survival. You’ll aos be responsible for placing down terrain, enemies and buildings, which in turn will help restore your hero’s memories. Of course, using these mechanics will also grant the player new classes, cards, and guardians that will ultimately contribute towards stopping the Lich’s “endless cycle of despair.”

While Loop Hero’s Switch release is sure to delight Nintendo fans, Devolver Digital hasn’t revealed whether the game will make its way to PlayStation and Xbox. It’s also worth mentioning that while the game is coming to Nintendo’s handheld, the Steam version currently lacks controller support. Therefore, it’ll be interesting to see how Four Quarters implements this in the console version of the game.
