Spell-crafting action-adventure indie game Mages of Mystralia has arrived on Nintendo Switch this week. It released last year on PC, followed by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s available for $19.99, but currently enjoying a 10% launch sale discount on Switch.

Developed by Canadian indie studio Borealys Games, Mages of Mystralia is their debut game. It stars Zia, a girl who discovers, rather violently, that she is a mage. Unfortunately she lives in a world where magic-users aren’t to be trusted.

Zia must learn how to craft and cast her own spells by finding and combining runes scattered around the land. Spells can be used to defeat enemies and to solve puzzles. The game promises a near infinite number of spell combinations that can be used throughout Zia’s journey.

Mages of Mystralia boasts a story written by renowned fantasy novelist and best-selling author Ed Greenwood. It also features an original orchestral score by Shota Nakama and the Video Game Orchestra.

If you want to delve further into the world of Mystralia, Borealys Games has also created an official digital comic on their website.

Mages of Mystralia is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. It’s rated E10+ by the ESRB for Fantasy Violence.
