After being announced for the Switch in September, the critically-acclaimed mobile sensation Downwell will make its way to the Switch next year on 31st January. The publisher Devolver Digital reportedly confirmed the date over on its Discord channel.
The title is a roguelike, platforming, shmup mash-up and includes a TATE mode so you can enjoy the game vertically. You take control of an individual who dives down a never-ending well and must defeat enemies, visit shops and collect treasure along the way. The procedurally generated design ensures no two trips down the well are ever the same.
- The Amazing Gunboots – The fashionable and lethal Gunboots allow players to unleash a torrent of firepower on the nasty creatures dwelling in the well and slow your decent with each shot.
- Unique Weapons & Items – Get different weapons, shop for peculiar items and obtain powerful upgrades that all stack and affect the way you play!
- A New Adventure Every Time – Each level in Downwell is procedurally generated, so no two trips down the well are ever the same providing a fresh new adventure each time!
As previously confirmed, Special Reserve Games is teaming up with Devolver Digital to release a physical version of this title.
