Cryptrio, match three arcade game, hitting Switch this week


Chequered Ink is putting Cryptrio on Switch this week, the studio has announced. The title is due out on April 12, 2024.

Cryptrio is a spooky new match three experience with a twist. Players will enter the crypt and stack monsters to score points. The idea is to match three of the same kind of monster to defeat them, but they’re all different shapes.

Here’s some additional information:

A monstrous match three arcade game with a twist! Connect the shapes in the right places to clear monsters from the dungeon and beat the bosses, all in the name of chasing the highest possible score.

Enter the crypt and defeat as many monsters as you can before they overwhelm you!

Match three of the same type of monster to defeat them. Their weird and wobbly shapes mean you’ll have to think hard about where to connect each piece lest you find yourself backed into a corner…
