A physical edition for Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit, the point-and-click adventure game, is coming soon to Switch consoles.

Indie publisher Super Rare Games has partnered with Thunderful Games for the production of physical formats of Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit. In a press release, the studio announced they will release the physical copies this May 2nd (British Summer Time).

But fans and Switch players looking forward to experiencing the game might have to mark their calendars early. According to the London-based publisher, they will only sell a total of 3,000 copies worldwide.

Players can get them at the Super Rare Games Storepage, they added. Crowns and Pawns first came out in 2022 for PC devices. It was recently added to the Switch in 2023. The new Switch game takes players to 19th-century Eastern Europe to solve several mysteries, some of which are inspired by history. These included a case involving the lesser-known history of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.

The story begins with Milda, who inherits her deceased Lithuanian grandfather's house.

A cryptic letter hinting at a family secret sets her on a path of personal discovery. But what began as a family visit quickly unraveled into a complex web of danger and intrigue.

Milda then finds herself investigating not only a lost relic. But also the legendary Lithuanian king who was never crowned. She will also get thrown into the rabbit hole of clandestine operations of the KGB during the Soviet era.

Along the way, players will guide Milda in solving intricate puzzles, follow cryptic clues, and make choices that shape the narrative.

Upon its release, Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit received generally favorable reviews. Whatoplay gave it a playscore of 7.8. The Switch version of the game was released in 2023. / ###
