Upcoming title Battle Princess Madelyn will be arriving on both Nintendo Switch and Wii U this fall, with the exact release date to be announced "very shortly". To celebrate, a new trailer has been released to show off some of the game's action.
We've been following the development of Battle Princess Madelyn for some time now on Nintendo Life, starting way back in February of last year before the Switch was even released. Since then, we've been treated to snippets of video footage - including the game's first level, teaser trailers, and the frantic Arcade Mode - and we're slowly but surely edging closer to the game's release.
If you've missed the journey so far, the game follows the story of a young knight in training, Madelyn, and her ghostly pet dog Fritzy. They set out on an adventure to save her kingdom and her family from the clutches of an evil wizard, and the whole thing is heavily influenced by the likes of Ghouls 'n Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon's Trap. Christopher Obritsch of developer Causal Bit Games has said the following:
"From its initial concept days, right through the successful Kickstarter campaign which reached over $212,665 CAD, until its imminent release, Battle Princess Madelyn has developed and grown from inspiration from feedback from my daughter, who inspired the original idea, gamers and ideals from the very best of classic retro games fused with modern presentation complete with gameplay and fun. I believe all our goals have been achieved with much much more added ingredients, features and elements that will have gamers engaged in a game that has been crafted with real planning, dedication and, a lot of love."
It shouldn't be long now until the game arrives on your home Nintendo console of choice. Will you be grabbing this on Switch, or will you treat the Wii U to a brand new experience for a change? Let us know with a comment.
