Tangledeep, turn-based dungeon crawler on Nintendo Switch

Inspired by classic SNES-era RPGs, Impact Gameworks’ stunning roguelike Tangledeep is available on the Nintendo Switch!

Create your character, gear up, and get ready to ascend through dangerous terrain while facing magical beasts and ancient automatons in this turn-based dungeon crawler with a job system and countless tactical choices.

On the soundtrack front, Tangledeep features the musical talents of Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana), Grant Kirkhope (GoldenEye 007, Civilization: Beyond Earth), Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid 3, Bayonetta), and Andrew Aversa, the developer behind Tangledeep who is known for his contributions as “zircon” on OverClocked Remix and composer of high-profile soundtracks (Soul Calibur V, ReCore, Crypt of the NecroDancer, Fantasy Strike, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remake).

The Switch version of Tangledeep is available in English, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese. It will also include:

  • Improved UI and controls for handheld, docked, and Pro Controller support
  • All-new monsters (such as the fearsome Polarattler)
  • New area: Riverstone Waterway


For hundreds of years, people have enjoyed the peaceful tranquility of underground settlements and villages, where the only route to the surface is “Tangledeep” – a mysterious and ever-changing labyrinth. With memories of the surface world long forgotten, you set out for the labyrinth to discover what lies above…

Tangledeep features a robust and customizable job system with 12 unique jobs to master. The game also supports a number of features designed to give players the perfect level of difficulty. You can opt for the true roguelike challenge of permadeath – or simply return to town upon death, for example. It’s also possible to share progress between characters by using the banking system – or by planting magic trees and raising monsters in town.


  • Experience finely-tuned, procedurally-generated and handcrafted gameplay as you fight challenging monsters, complete quests, and collect rare items.
  • Master deep, tactical turn-based combat across 12 unique jobs with more than 100 skills.

    • Adventure Mode – Play without the fear of permadeath, traditional RPG style.
  • Capture almost every monster in the game and raise them in the Monster Corral as a pet – or breed them with other monsters!
