The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: Goblin Scourge Edition released on Nintendo Switch today!

It's the day gamers and Fighting Fantasy fans have been waiting for - Tin Man Games' update of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: Goblin Scourge Edition is now available for Nintendo Switch, bringing some old school gamebook RPG action to one of the newest handheld consoles!

Inspired by the gamebook by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone - which is 36 this year! - the tunnels, caves and dungeons of Firetop Mountain have been massively expanded, appearing both familiar and new to die-hard fans of the Fighting Fantasy series.

This is a major achievement for the Tin Man team, as this release marks both their first time releasing on console and their first time releasing for Nintendo! The game looks beautiful and plays beautifully as well.

It even features Russ Nicholson's classic art from the original edition of the gamebook.

The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: Goblin Scourge Edition comes complete with all existing DLC and will include over a dozen unlockable hero characters. Each comes with a unique miniature, evoking the nostalgia of classic tabletop games.

For each character you take into the mountain, both story and combat will – of course – unfold in different ways. Different narrative options will unlock and you’ll enjoy the strategic challenge of a fresh set of attacks and abilities with each hero you play as.

And if you’re sick of fighting on the side of good, fear not! You can also play as one of Zagor’s evil minions – Slime Beast, Giant Rat, Skeleton Warrior and more – in a combat-heavy, story-light ‘Gauntlet’ game mode.

The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: Goblin Scourge Edition is available now, for £29.99 USD, from the Nintendo eShop. Zagor is looking forward to taking on the many new adventurers brave enough to enter his lair!
