Causal Bit Games and Hound Picked Games have shared a brand new trailer for Battle Princess Madelyn, revealing that the game will arrive on Switch on 6th December in the process.

Heavily influenced by the likes of Ghouls 'n Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon's Trap, the game follows the story of a young knight in training as she sets off on an adventure to save her kingdom. This one has been on many people's radar for some time now, and we had a blast when we went hands-on with it earlier this month. In our preview, we praised the game for nailing minor details, its pleasing platforming, and its responsive controls.

Christopher Obritsch of Causal Bit Games has said the following:

"It's been an exciting, exhaustive, stressful, enjoyable, frustrating, etc. period over the last two years developing Battle Princess Madelyn and I would do it all over again. The feedback that has been given in the creation of the game, the positive remarks, the way social media, the specialist gaming press, etc. have supported the game throughout this long period has been nothing short of remarkable. The end result is a game the team are all proud of and went beyond what was envisioned. Within a very short time gamers will be able to play Battle Princess Madelyn. I hope it will give them as much enjoyment as it has to the team that created it!"


If you were paying attention to this article's title, or if you're already clued up on your Battle Princess Madelyn knowledge, you'll likely be aware that the game is also coming to Wii U. It's unsurprising that the more modern consoles seem to have been the priority here, but the Wii U version is still on the way and will "follow later in the new year".
