Switch Re:Port 4: Axiom Verge, SteamWorld Dig, Crypt of the Necrodancer, and more via God is a Geek

If you've never played Crypt of the Necrodancer, the Switch release is the definitive version without question.

Review: Crypt Of The NecroDancer (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

CA roguelike at heart with a rhythm-game soul, Crypt Of The NecroDancer is a sublime experience that's a must-play for fans of the genre(s). Its upbeat, uptempo take on dungeon crawling is infectious, and there's enough content here to last even the savviest of spelunkers for many, many dance-fuelled dives into the depths — if you've never tangoed with the COTN, this fully-featured Switch edition is the perfect way to jump in.

Crypt of the Necrodancer (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

You hop on for the ride, enjoy some groovy tunes, and overcome a slew of challenges along the way. Even though every run is different, I always felt I was in control. It's hard to get on the beat, but once over that initial hump, Crypt of the Necrodancer becomes one of the most intriguing experiences available on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Don't sleep on it.

I played this game on the PS4 before the Switch took my soul. This game is an absolutely blast. If you love dungeon crawlers, fun upbeat music and unforgiving combat - this game will be the best thing ever. It can definitely take you into an adventure that will make time pass.

My best friend keeps recommending this to me. I actually really enjoy rhythm games and (obviously) RPGs. Plus I’ve been able to play as the necrodancer is Quest of Dungeons.

Simply Awesome. The trailer gives me goosebumps until this day. Really loved it on PC. Switch is a dream platform for games like Crypt!

Must have.

I had this on the PS4 and loved it. $20 is a little more than I want to pay to buy it again though unless it's a physical copy.

It really does look interesting, but I was wondering about the developers' passion.
They first released this game quite a while back, in 2014 or something, and it was going on for $3 or $4 on Steam.
Now, this is selling for $19.99.
Is there anything new? Are they keeping upgrading and updating the game? I'm on the fence on this one.
