Team17 has revealed that it has added The Game Kitchen's upcoming hack and slash game, Blasphemous, to its game label. The partnership will see the game launch on Nintendo Switch later this year.

In the game, players take on the role of The Penitent One in the dark gothic land of Cvstodia, where a foul curse known as 'The Miracle' has fallen. You'll need to explore a "nightmarish world of twisted religion", discovering its many secrets hidden deep inside and using combos and executions to destroy the hordes of grotesque monsters and bosses held within.

Here's a quick blurb:

Prepare for a descent into a dark and punishing Metroidvania world where fast-paced, skilled combat combines with a deep and evocative narrative core. You will play as The Penitent One, a sole survivor of the massacre of the ‘Silent Sorrow’. Exploring the nightmarish world of Cvstodia and unlocking the hellish secrets within, only you can free it from a twisted fate and reach the origin of your torment.

An exact release date hasn't been set just yet so we'll make sure to keep an eye out for more news going forward.
