The retro-inspired action platformer Ghoulboy - Dark Sword of Goblin is planning a nostalgic trip to the Nintendo Switch later this month, it has been confirmed.
Said to combine elements from the action-RPG genre with hack 'n' slash style gameplay, Ghoulboy features all the heroic characters, gloomy environments, and demonic bosses you'd expect to find in your classic, retro platforming adventure.
Players must take control of said heroic character, throwing your spear to defeat enemies and create your very own platforms - you can see this taking place in the trailer above. You'll find puzzle and combat elements to explore, as well as the ability to trade in any collected gold to acquire health upgrades and weapons.
- 4 bosses
- Chiptune retro music
- 3 weapons (small sword, big sword, mace)
- 2 throwable weapons
The game has received "positive" user reviews on Steam since its launch last year, and will be available on Switch from 14th February. You'll be able to get your hands on it for £9.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.
