505 Games’ puzzle-RPG hybrid, Gems of War, is available now for free on Nintendo Switch.

This genre mashup features a battle system in which players match gems on a puzzle board to power spells and match skulls to take out enemies. Journey through the realms of Krystara and the Underworld, embark on quests, conquer kingdoms, and build alliances. Each week will bring new events for players to enjoy, and there’s a wealth of unlockable content available. New content is also planned in future updates as well.

“We’re thrilled to introduce our first free-to-play title on the Nintendo Switch,” said Clive Robert, 505 Games Head of Publishing for Free-to-Play. “Gems of War is perfect for the platform, providing gamers the flexibility to play their way and offers multidimensional gameplay with hundreds of hours of incredible content to enjoy, with much more to come in future updates. With this first step, we open the opportunity to bring many more free-to-play experiences from our portfolio to the Nintendo Switch, and we can’t wait to share more of what’s to come.”

There are currently more than 600 quests and storylines to discover (including multiple quests per kingdom), over 250 weapons and spells, more than 600 troops to collect, and 30+ kingdoms and factions. Game modes include PvP, minigames, Guild Wars, and Live Events, and players can team up with others in guilds and join forces in Guild Wars.

Gems of War has been a perfect extension to the hybrid puzzle-RPG gameplay that is signature to the Puzzle Quest franchise, and I know fans (old and new) are going to love playing it on the Switch,” says Steve Fawkner, CEO and Creative Lead at developer Infinity Plus 2.

Gems of War is available to download now for free from the Switch eShop.
