  • Colosseum Mode – Test your mettle against hordes of enemies! Starting from level 1 and without any items, defy death as you take on waves of enemies to advance. Chain combos will be key to your survival; the bigger your combo meter, the more XP you will earn and the better the items you will find!
  • Boss Rush – Fight against 5 bosses with no breaks! Fight against tougher bosses (both old and new) in quick  succession, with your current adventuring supplies. Level up and gear up to face them! If you complete this mode, you will unlock one of the original bosses as a summon!
  • Dungeon Builder – Build and play custom dungeon floors! Create a floor layout, choose the enemies you want to appear and select the boss guarding the exit. You can even choose what items will appear in chests and their properties, so you can set yourself a unique challenge or share a fiendish floor with a friend. Share your creations via a simple text code!
  • Item Shop – When playing the new modes, you will earn Symbols that you can exchange for items in the Item Shop. The item offer will change daily and is the same for all players each day. This feature can help you unlock all of the weapon and relic types, a useful tool for achievement hunters!
  • Epilogue – Complete the new Extra modes to unlock a new chapter in the story!

Since its launch on January 28th Sword of the Necromancer has shot into the top 30 downloaded games on the Nintendo eShop in North America and Europe and after listening to the players, an update was created to add some quality of life(after death) improvements:

  • An Item Bag has been added that can store up to 4 items and is accessible at any time. Items stored in the bag are not in use and thus do not grant any passive or active effect.

  • New options have been added to the Game Settings. Players can now choose to recall monsters from anywhere, start the game on the floor you last played, and enable/disable the new Item Bag. Use the Game Settings to optimise your gaming experience.
  • Game Settings screen will appear once upon boot up after having cleared the tutorial.
  • Several minor bugs and crashes have been fixed.

Each attempt gets you closer to the Necromancer. Upon death you’ll lose all your equipped weapons and monsters, but you will retain part of the level you achieved in your run. As you scour deeper through the dungeon you’ll uncover more of Tama and Koko’s past. Do you think it is dangerous to go alone? Then use the Flask of Homunculus to create a copy of yourself and play with a friend in local co-op! Additionally, there are IR codes that can be scanned to make the game easier. Or harder. The choice is yours!
