Yes! We don’t have a timeframe for that DLC just yet, but stay tuned for more information in the coming months.

Android version when!?
We don’t have any current plans for an Android version! I know that’s not what you want to hear, but its the truth.

  1. Thanks so much, ive been nuts about this game and have had not a platform to play it on, only having an xbox one and switch. Ive been checking everyday for a release date on switch, and so glad its almost here. So excited!

  2. Hi,
    Just in time for my birthday but any plans for a physical release for the Switch?
    A Deluxe version with full DLC maybe ?

  3. I can’t wait to play this game, I refused to buy the DLC on my PS for the hope that Darkest Dungeon would come to the Switch!

    Day one purchases… thanks Red Hook!

  4. This makes me so happy!!! But kinda sad : I suppose no chance of porting save data from Vita/Ps4 version? I’ve put in SO many hours into the Vita version – I love it so. Day 1 purchase including DLC for me 🙂 ! Thanks for all your hard work Red Hook.

  5. The German Amazon site list already a physical release with all dlc included with a release date of march 22. I preorder that. Is that listing correct?

  6. Can’t wait !

    I’ve been waiting for this a long time ago, even when the Switch wasn’t announced =) Loved the game but I found myself having a hard time staring at a computer for hours aside from work.

    (But I have to say, it feels overpriced tho for someone who already bought the game & DLC at full price once.)

  7. Will there be a Chinese language?and when the entity version released?
    you know the Chinese regional market is very large….

  8. What about the translation? I bought it on PS4 and found it hard to read in english? It will be traslated to spanish or other languages?
