'Wizard of Legend' (ALL) Sells 200k Copies In Its First Week

Wizard of Legend is a fast paced 2D dungeon crawler where you assume the role of a powerful wizard on his quest for fame and glory!

Every year in the Kingdom of Lanova, the Council of Magic holds the Chaos Trials, a gauntlet of magical challenges put forth by its strongest members. Contestants that successfully complete all of the challenges and demonstrate superior wizardry earn the right to become a Wizard of Legend!

Battle your way through each challenge by defeating powerful conjured enemies! Collect valuable spells and relics and build up your magical arsenal to fit your playstyle! Achieve mastery over magic by chaining spells together to create devastating combinations! Face and defeat council members in magical combat to become a Wizard of Legend!

Combat in Wizard of Legend revolves around using magical spell cards known as arcana. Each arcana is unleashed with a simple button press. Unleashing them in quick succession to create a combo will become second nature, as you navigate through the challenges of the Chaos Trials. While you begin the game with just a handful of your favorite arcana, you’ll quickly discover more as you progress, boosting your hand and allowing you to pull off longer, more devastating spell combos.

Wizard of Legend's unique focus on magic melee has enchanted over 200,000 players to purchase it across Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC in its first week.

The devs are committed to expanding the spell-slinging dungeon crawler with free DLC and updates to meet the overwhelmingly positive consumer reactions. Later this year, the dev team will deliver on its Kickstarter promise, making a whole new chapter available for 1P and 2P modes, along with new arenas for the versus mode and even more area maps for the existing dungeons, for those who have been craving more to explore.

Publishing head John Polson says: I am beyond excited to see players worldwide embrace Wizard of Legend's unique magic melee, busting out fierce and fresh combos every playthrough with over 100 unique spells and items to try. Wizard of Legend is a proud addition to the growing family Presented by Humble Bundle, including A Hat in Time, Staxel, and more. I can't wait to bring even more surprises to everyone in the coming months!

With over 100 different arcana to find and master, there are countless combinations of starting hands to suit your playstyle. In addition, you can equip magical outfits and relics that have a wide variety of effects, ranging from summoning helpful familiars, to raining down lightning on all enemies in the area. Each run through the trials will allow you to permanently unlock additional tools that will help you achieve victory, and shopkeepers will help you even further with the different currencies you collect.

You can also grab a friend and tackle the Chaos Trials together in Wizard of Legend’s couch co-op mode. While jumping headfirst into the Chaos Trials as a duo will increase the difficulty of the run, it also allows you to come up with strategic synergies only possible when teaming up with another wizard. Also, the fun isn’t over when your friend goes down in battle, as defeating multiple enemies in a show of skill will grant your partner a new lease on life!
