Launching today on Nintendo Switch is Elden: Path of The Forgotten, a retro-inspired action-adventure game that could well be worth your time.

It has you guiding the titular Elden on a mission across a blighted land to save their mother from ancient horrors. Promising "brutal, technical combat", the game boasts non-traditional storytelling, strategy in battle, and a dark world just waiting to be explored.

Here's a feature list and a selection of screenshots for you to check out:

- Many diverse and challenging regions.
- Horrifying Lovecraftian enemies and bosses.
- Unique and brutal weapons and spells.
- Powerful and dynamic items.

You'll find it waiting for you on the eShop today for £14.99 / $15.99. The team tells us that Elden: Path of The Forgotten is "a sombre, intriguing, and exquisite journey that invites the players to discover a narrative by themselves".
