Launching next week on Nintendo Switch is Goblin Sword, a pixel-art action-platformer that's set to bring another dose of classic retro vibes to our favourite hybrid console.
Complete with light RPG elements, the game sees an army of monsters led by an evil wizard invading your hometown. It's up to you to slay as many monsters as you can, collecting loot, avoiding dangerous traps, and defeating menacing bosses along the way. You can expect a fateful encounter with the evil wizard himself, too.
The game was originally released for iOS, but this new port includes "redrawn background graphics and some small gameplay changes". We're also told that it was inspired by classics like Castlevania and Mega Man X. Here's a quick feature list:
- 89 levels
- 13 bosses
- 30 weapons with unique special attacks
- 30 relics that grant you abilities
- 14 costumes
- 8 guardians that follow you around and assist you
- 5 secret very hard levels
- Decorate your home with souvenirs
Goblin Sword is set to launch on Thursday 13th February for $4.99 / £4.49 / €4.99. A 40% off launch sale will be available, however, bringing that price down to $2.99 / £2.69 / €2.99 for a limited time.
