Darkest Dungeon is one popular dungeon-crawling roguelike, thanks in part to Twitch streamers and turn-based RPG fans alike. And now, the game may be coming to Nintendo Switch.

Darkest Dungeon puts the player in control of a group of heroes battling through dungeons, forests, and abandoned dwellings in a Victorian setting while facing off against ne'er-do-wells and monsters. But what makes the game so unique is that heroes can suffer from psychological afflictions from venturing. Let a character get too stressed out, and their psychological wounds will impair their performance in battle.

It's a pretty fascinating mechanic. And now, it appears Red Hook Studios is bringing the game over to Nintendo Switch. A tweet posted on the developer's official Twitter account shows a Darkest Dungeon battle scene in the Switch's handheld mode.

No official information has been announced yet, so it's unclear when (and if) Nintendo Switch owners will be venturing into Darkest Dungeon's crypts any time soon. But the studio expressed interest in developing for the Switch earlier this year, so the reveal isn't too surprising.

Darkest Dungeon was originally released for PC and Mac on Jan. 19, 2016 after launching on Steam Early Access in early 2015. The game then landed on PlayStation 4 and Vita on Sept. 27, 2016 and reached iOS on Aug. 24.
