Edmund McMillen has confirmed that his forthcoming hardcore platfomer The End is Nigh will be released on the Nintendo Switch. In case you didn't know, McMillen is famous for The Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy.

The End is Nigh focuses on Ash and his attempt to navigate a post-apocalyptic world packed with hazards and enemies.

Here's some PR:

The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure platformer where the player takes control over Ash, one of few “things” that have “survived” the “end of the world”.

Follow Ash as he flops his way through a future of pain and suffering. Feel his stress levels rise as you throw him into an endless swarm of decaying, mutant animal-like creatures and help aid his final epic quest… to simply make a friend (out of pieces of people he finds along his journey).

Oh, also you collect video game cartridges and tumors! if that does anything for ya.


- 600+ levels!
- 12+ explorable chapters!
- 20+ collectible and fully playable mini game cartridges! (each with their own tiny achievements!)
- 80+ achievements that will make you feel good about yourself
- 100s of collectible little squishy tumors!
- loads of hidden extras and endings that you will probably see someone else find before you do!
- and stress!

The game launches on Steam on July 12th, with the Switch version coming later. The trailer is below, but be warned - it contains quite a bit of bad language (this is a game by Edmund McMillen, after all):
