Danish developer Zaxis and Munich-based publisher EuroVideo have announced that Fimbul will be making its way to Nintendo Switch later this year.

Fimbul is a single-player comic book-style action adventure set in the final winter before Ragnarök, The Fimbul Winter. You play as an old berserker, Kveldulver, travelling through the frozen Midgard to battle Trolls and Jotuns in a quest to reclaim an ancient artefact that might just save the world.

The game's non-linear story is heavily influenced by the player’s actions, and thanks to an autosave feature called “The Thread of Life”, players will be able to come back to crucial moments in the story to explore alternative branches at any moment. Its combat system will ask you to get to grips with a wide variety of weaponry, matching up your arsenal with an array of different enemies in a range of diverse environments. Players will have to use their Vikings’ individual skills and different items to survive against enemy warriors and dangerous creatures like hungry wolves, monsters, and the giant Jotun.

No exact release date or pricing has been confirmed just yet, but Fimbul is expected to launch on Switch in November this year.
