Developer Grimorio of Games has announced a remake of Sword of the Necromancer called Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection for PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. While news of a remake is hardly unusual in 2024, what sets this apart is the fact that Sword of the Necromancer was released just three years ago, in January 2021.

Sword of the Necromancer: Resurrection is a 3D remake using the engine for upcoming action-RPG Sword of the Necromancer: Revenant. Resurrection is set to launch sometime in 2024, but before Revenant does. Those who complete Resurrection will also be able to unlock special bonuses in Revenant, such as being able to summon Resurrection’s bosses to help out.

The 3D remake will maintain the original roguelike and dungeon-crawling design, while introducing enhanced features such as new combo formations and an AI companion system. Because the original’s mechanics were all set in one dungeon which will be similar to Revenant’s, Resurrection is set to offer a bigger dungeon than those in Revenant. The dungeon will be divided into various “zones”, each ending with a boss, to imitate the “floors” mechanism from the original game.

In addition to this, Resurrection will support local co-op play, and it will include new narrative sequences along with both English and Japanese voiceover options.

The storyline revolves around Tama, an ex-rogue whose duty was to guard the priestess Koko throughout a continental pilgrimage. However, following Koko’s death, Tama transports her to the Necromancer’s crypt, believed to be the location of a power that can resurrect the dead. Tama embarks on a mission into the crypt in an attempt to secure this power and bring Koko back to life.
