WayForward has made quite a name for itself in the 2D action platformer space, with on titles such as Contra 4, Ducktales: Remastered, and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero as just some highlights on the studio’s impressive résumé. While it has done plenty of original work, the studio has also never shied away from producing licensed titles for other franchises, and the latest licensed game it’s been working on has just been announced.
The Mummy Demastered—a companion game to the new movie coming out this week—has been announced for a multiplatform release in late August, with the Switch being included on the list of platforms. Not much is known about the game other than a single screenshot, but it looks to be another retro inspired Metroidvania with some gorgeous artwork. Regardless of how the movie itself turns out, this will likely be a game to keep an eye on.
