Now you can take the Dealer with you, wherever you go. Although I'm not sure why you'd want to, you know, with him being a bit of a shifty d*** and all. But Defiant seems to think there'll be an audience for consistent badgering, trolling and straight-up nefariousness on the go, via Nintendo Switch.

That lead-in should not be read as negatives though, because I love Hand of Fate as a series, and seriously rate Hand of Fate 2. The Dealer is a brilliant character and it just seemed like a matter of time before he and his 'games' wound up on Nintendo's successful console-handheld hybrid.

Here's a snippet from our review, as played on Xbox One X:
Challenges (ie ‘maps’) vary and have variables you can attempt to account for, such as loading up Encounters with cards that feature, say, Map Reveal if the challenge is one centered around making you walk in figurative circles, for example. Or you might need a set number of Blessings, or defense in order to achieve the gold tier of the challenge, which means you can add Equipment, Supplies and appropriate Encounters to help facilitate this. And while the deck is still shuffled, you as the player are given some agency to help forge parts of your quest, yourself. It's brilliant.
The game releases very soon (July 17) and is already available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
