Publisher Digerati has announced that Monster Slayers will be making the leap to Nintendo Switch on April 5th. Developed by Nerdook, the deck-building, monster-killing roguelike has already amassed quite the loyal following on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. I have to be completely honest, this combination of genres is precisely not my cup of tea, but Russell thought it was excellent (GN score 9.0), so I'm sure he'll be happy that now he can take the game wherever he wants.
