The beloved mobile game from Kong Studios, Guardian Tales, is now free-to-play on the Nintendo Switch after being available on iOS and Android devices. The retro style of the game will give Nintendo fans a sense of nostalgia for old-school Nintendo games such as Zelda’s A Link to the Past. Players, referred to as Guardians, will start the game off as a recruit on the day their kingdom gets attacked. It will be up to them to become a legend and save the kingdom from powerful enemies.
Guardian Tales will be a brand new experience for those who have not played the mobile version before. In the Nintendo Switch version, fans can enjoy the game on a larger screen, allowing them to become more immersed in the gameplay. Adding the use of the JoyCon allows for more accessible and more detailed gameplay. The controller customization function will also allow players to map the operation button in their style conveniently. Also, unlike the mobile version, Guardians worldwide can meet and compete in a PvP setting on a single server.
