'Masquerada: Songs and Shadows' (ALL) Gets Nintendo Switch Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 16, 2019 @ 4:43 p.m. PDT

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is a 2.5D isometric RPG, built in the vein of Baldur's Gate and Dragon Age where you can pause combat to plan tactics for your party.

Set in a city-state whose people don't believe in an afterlife and where only the rich and powerful are granted the privilege of being remembered after their passing, the world of Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is one with rich lore and world building, bright, hand-painted environments, and a thoughtful story that explores how societies deal with love, life, power and death.

It's been five years since Gavar was exiled. Allowed to return home in exchange for investigating the disappearance of an old friend who has been researching the Mascherines, magical masks that grant extraordinary powers, Cicero's journey will force him to navigate through a civil war and a mystical, ancient history full of intrigue and tragedy.

Cicero and his four companions will confound their enemies in real-time combat with tactical pause. Between skill trees of Cicero and his allies, the party can activate elemental combos to deal devastating damage.

A gripping narrative, fully voiced by the likes of Felicia Day, Matthew Mercer (Fire Emblem: Awakening), Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect series), Dave Fennoy (The Walking Dead) and more incredible talents, awaits those who delve into the troubled hearts of the Masquerada and the politics which burden them so.


Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is coming to Nintendo Switch May 9.

"Masquerada was an incredible experience for me. As a lover of storytelling and character development, the incredible writing of the game drew me in immediately,” said Matt Mercer, voice actor for Cicero Gavar. “Now mix this grand tale with my love of Isometric RPGs of yore, and I'm sold on multiple levels. I'm not just a cast member of the project, but a dedicated fan."

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is currently available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac for $19.99 and can be played in English, French, German, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Turkish languages. It will be available on Nintendo Switch for the same price.
