The folks over at SkyBox Labs might be hard at work helping with development on the upcoming Halo Infinite, but they're also preparing to launch the studio's recent platformer, Stela, on Nintendo Switch.
The game is described as a "cinematic platformer", telling the story of a young woman witnessing the final days of a mysterious ancient world. The Switch release will be a 'definitive' version of the game and will include post-release content already available on Xbox One and Apple Arcade, plus a final update which is planned for all platforms.
Here's some PR, as well as a comment from Shyang Kong, Co-Founder of SkyBox Labs:
Escape monstrosities ranging from dormant beasts to haunting shadows and giant beetles. Solve massive puzzles intertwined with beautiful-yet-decaying landscapes including pale snow drifts, abandoned farms and massive catacombs. Experience the events leading to the end of a world accompanied by the refrains of an original ambient soundtrack.
Shyang Kong: "Everything in Stela - the music, the monsters, the environments - exists in service of the story. We’ve received lots of great feedback from Stela’s players and have worked to improve the narrative experience alongside ports to new platforms, making it the perfect version for new fans while offering those who tried it the first time around plenty of reasons to revisit the tale."
The game is set to launch on Switch on 13th March for $19.99. You'll be able to purchase it directly from the Switch eShop from that date.
