'Death Road To Canada' Shows Off Switch Features - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 13, 2018 @ 7:20 a.m. PDT

Survive the pixel-perfect zombie hordes in this roguelike, randomly generated, zombie-filled road trip.

Tipped off that Canada might just be free from the threat of zombies, the long, winding Death Road is all that stands between the player and their goal. Players will explore iconic sites such as Y’all-Mart and the Muscle! Bomb!! Gym!!!, meeting and recruiting a host of strange and bizarre companions along the way.

Unusually for randomly generated roguelikes, Death Road To Canada features a heavy emphasis on narrative, its Interactive Fiction events making or breaking friendships, all the while adding character-driven drama to the blood and guts chaos of combat.

A far cry from sunshine state at the end Route 66, Death Road To Canada is a desperate scramble to the promised land of Ontario.

The release includes all major updates from the original PC version.

Players will now be able to take the highly esteemed cadaverous journey from Florida to Ontario, soaking up its immaculately gruesome pixel-art take on the undead apocalypse. Facing off against near insurmountable odds, Death Road To Canada tasks players with surviving its brutal, hyper-violent combat with over-the-top, looted weaponry. Scavenging the derelict environment, tough, sometimes hilarious decisions will have to be made along the way, either alone or in its two-player co-op mode.


The trailer runs through yet more footage of the game, detailing its support of TV, handheld and tabletop display modes along with multiple control options including Pro Controller, Joy-Con Grip and the Single Joy-Con. The game’s pick up and play style combined with short, intense playthroughs makes it especially well-suited to the Nintendo Switch platform.


Key Features:

  • Up to 500 zombies can hunt you down at a time. Fight them, try to squirm past, or run.
  • Use the character creator to put yourself, friends, and family in the game. Have them show up at random to get eaten!
  • Find special and rare events, weapons, and characters with strange abilities.
  • Make tough choices in Interactive Fiction events. Get different options and results based on the traits of your party members.
  • Teach a dog how to drive a car.
  • Throw chairs. Get your characters strong enough to throw large sofas.
  • Most family friendly zombie apocalypse game on the market! Any gore explosion is in a cute style. We censor the word d*ngus once.
  • Tell people to "Cool it."
  • 2 player local same screen co-op where you control up to 4 characters!

Currently available on PC, Death Road to Canada is coming this April to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
