Hard-as-nails roguevania Dead Cells is coming to mobiles

Motion Twin's blistering-tough indie slashes over to mobiles this Summer

Dead Cells, one of the hardest indies on the market right now, will soon turn your phone into a roguevania torture device.

Having already conquered the Nintendo Switch, developer Play Motion is bringing their immensely challenging indie sensation Dead Cells to mobile phones, starting with iOS first.

Other than a Summer release window, exact details are light. We expect the full indie to be pushed onto smartphones and tablets, complete with touchscreen controls and optional Bluetooth gamepad support. With permanent death, Dead Cells is already hard enough...I couldn't imagine playing it without a joystick or buttons.

There's rumors that Dead Cells could also pop up on Apple's new Apple Arcade all-you-can-play premium gaming service, but this probably won't happen for two reasons: it's not a platform exclusive like all Apple Arcade games are touted to be (Dead Cells is on a bunch of other platforms), and it'll probably jump onto Android for maximum exposure.

iOS users can sign up here for more updates once the game goes live. Check below for more information about Dead Cells:
