Motion Twin Confirms Dead Cells Will Have Console Retail Release in August!

BORDEAUX, France (May 9, 2018) — Motion Twin is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Merge Games to bring Dead Cells to retail for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation®4!

Having sold more than 700,000 copies while in Steam Early Access, the developers at Motion Twin can’t wait for console players to see the finished result of their hard work in Early Access.

“We’ve been absolutely floored by the success of Dead Cells and the reaction of the PC gaming community. So many people have asked for the game on console, so partnering with Merge for a retail copy just makes sense. We can’t wait to welcome console players to our community, to hear their feedback and to work with them on future updates of the game.”
—Steve Filby, Producer at Motion Twin

Dead Cells is currently available in Early Access on Steam and GOG.com for $19.99 USD. With the release out of Early Access, the price is likely to increase.

About Dead Cells:

Dead Cells puts you in control of a failed alchemic experiment trying to figure out what’s happening on a sprawling, ever-changing and seemingly cursed Island. Tough but fair combat, responsive controls, challenging foes, permadeath and of course, the emergency panic roll, make for a demanding, visceral and cathartic action game.
