JackQuest: Tale of the Sword, a fast-paced fantasy action platformer from Blowfish Studios and developer NX Games, is making its way to Switch in "late 2018".

In this game, players must explore the cavernous depths of Korg’s slime-ridden, labyrinthine lair. Inside, you'll be solving environmental puzzles, discovering power-ups, obtaining new abilities, collecting weapons, and challenging subterranean foes, including a handful of massive bosses who hope to completely ruin your day.

The game prides itself on its quick combat and steady progression, as players find themselves being guided through a single, interconnected world full of secrets, collectable gems, and hidden challenges that could well please even the most hardcore of completionists. The game's PR sets the scene rather nicely:

"One fateful night, when young Jack takes the beautiful Nara for a walk in the woods, his love is kidnapped by the villainous orc Korg. Forced to mount a rescue, Jack plunges into Korg’s underground base, where he happens upon a strange blade that becomes an unlikely ally."

The game will be launching across all major platforms simultaneously later this year, so make sure to keep an eye out for more as the months pass by.
