Publisher Cowcat Games has revealed that it will bring Diabolical Mind's Xenon Valkyrie+ to Nintendo Switch on 1st January 2019.
The game is described as "a rogue-lite platformer for hardcore gamers" and combines this approach with RPG elements. You must fight your way to the deepest part of the moon, halting the plans of a wicked witch and collecting a whole bunch of weapons along the way.
Every time you play, you'll find yourself fighting through a randomly-generated world; you'll encounter many characters, stores, and enemies that all play their part in telling "a legendary story". There's a clear retro vibe here in terms of both graphics and music, which you can likely tell from the original PS4/Xbox One launch trailer (above).
