Cthulhu Saves Christmas

Who will save Christmas? Cthulhu might! Its the holiday special game that everyone (yes you did) asked for: Cthulhu Saves Christmas for Nintendo Switch! Is it any good? Let’s find out in this review!


I want to start this review by thanking my lord and savior Cthulhu. May he rule forever and ever.


Also this game gets a 10 million out of 10 million.

Wait. What? Huh. Where am I?

Oh. Its the Cthulhu Saves Christmas review! Right.

Well, the best thing about Cthulhu is its story. This is a really funny game. I love how it knows that its an rpg and the characters comment on that often. I’m such a sucker for meta-humor. I also like the characters, especially Cthulhu the great. I mean Cthulhu. Yes, thats what I meant.


As for the gameplay? Well, its not bad. The battle system is a lot like Cosmic Star Heroine, though the abilities you use have to recharge after one use. And I like like the interactions in the town. The best one is the Final Fantasy Tactics tribute. You’ll know it when you see it, unless you haven’t played FF Tactics in which case what is wrong with you? Really. Go fix that!

Okay, so what of Cthulhu Saves Christmas graphics? I like the graphics, especially the environments which are very detailed and nice. I do wish the game’s characters were a little bit bigger. They are so small. Cute, sure, but also heard to see at times. Maybe I’m blind.

What really makes Cthulhu Saves Christmas worth playing is its story and characters. If you like meta-humor and funny stuff, get in here! You’ll enjoy Cthulhu Saves Christmas.


You will also join the cult of his lord and savior Cthulhu. Yes, we’ll get you.

Cthulhu Saves Christmas gets an 8.0 out of 10!
