The crazy creative minds behind Dark Cloud and White Knight Chronicles are bringing one of the newer games Westward for the first time — SNACK WORLD: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold will be available in the West starting on the 14th of February 2020.

If you're unfamiliar with LEVEL-5, they're a developer that comes up with some pretty cool RPGs. One of their most notable Western releases was the Dark Cloud games, a pair of titles that had you dungeon crawling, crafting odd items, and rebuilding a broken world. The latter part is quite literal, especially when it comes to the first game — you would collect up various villagers and their homes and reassemble towns that had been shattered by an evil magic.

Now, that same company is bringing SNACK WORLD: The Dungeon Crawl - GOLD to the West for the very first time in early 2020.

What is SNACK WORLD: The Dungeon Crawl - GOLD All About?

Simply put, SNACK WORLD: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold has you delving into procedurally-generated dungeons and kicking butt while on a grand quest. That alone isn't particularly exceptional — there are plenty of games in this genre, after all — but what's notable is that the developers who are making the game are pretty darn good at this kind of thing.

Have a gander at the Announcement Trailer for the game's Western release to get a feel for the setting:

As a press release notes, the titular Snack World is under threat as the evil Sultan Vinegar seeks to revive the terrifying Deodragon Smörg Åsbord. You'll join the treasure hunters Chup, Mayonna, and their friends as you try to restore order to the land of Tutti-Frutti.

You'll prep for your adventure by shopping at convenience stores to optimize your gear before each run. These deadly dungeons will feature plenty of enemies, tough bosses, and, of course, a boatload of treasure. You'll also be able to use snacks to summon allies to help you in battle. If that's not working, you can always change your equipment on the fly!

SNACK WORLD: The Dungeon Crawl - Gold seems like a pretty neat game, and you'll be able to get your hands on it when it launches for the Nintendo Switch on February 14, 2020, at the price of $49.99 or your regional equivalent. In the meantime, you can check out the game's eShop page.
