Abylight Studios has revealed that Cursed Castilla EX is headed to Nintendo Switch very soon indeed, with a release date now locked in for 24th January.

Yes, Don Ramiro is back, but this time on Switch. Loved by critics and fans alike when the game launched on 3DS in 2017, Cursed Castilla EX has you banishing zombies, demons and more in a monster-infested fortress, playing out like a spiritual successor to Capcom's Ghosts 'n Goblins. We actually gave the 3DS version an 'excellent' 9/10 in our review, saying the following:

"Cursed Castilla EX is a punishing but ultimately rewarding love letter to the classic action platformers of the coin-op industry's golden years, and while its brutal nature may prove off-putting for some players, those who appreciate the '80s and '90s era of gaming will find plenty to enjoy here."

This new Switch version brings the game's classic arcade action back in style, running at 60fps (docked and handheld), and featuring four different endings alongside four different view modes. Here's a quick feature list to give you a little more info:

- Explore Tolomera del Rey in depth through 8 game stages.
- Fight against more than 48 types of enemies and 19 final bosses.
- Brag about your combat skills with 16 unlockable achievements.
- Learn about all the myths featured in the game with the illustrated bestiary as well.

As noted above, Cursed Castilla EX arrives on Switch on 24th January, and will be priced at $13.99 / 13.99€. Any pre-orders made from 17th January until that release date will receive a 10% discount, so make sure to pick it up early if you definitely want to check it out.
