Eldest Souls first leapt onto the Switch scene back in Spring 2020 as part of a Nintendo Indie Showcase, looking rather stylish and offering up a range of boss fights, handsome visuals and more lore than you can shake a stick at.

Fallen Flag Studio's game is now close to release, as confirmed by publisher United Label; it arrives on Switch on 29th July, so it's not far off at all.

You can see a new animated story trailer at the top of this page, but if you want some gameplay we've also put the Indie showcase footage below.

Eldest Souls focuses on only the toughest and most engaging of combat encounters – the Bosses – with each Old God presenting a new and unique challenge. Fitting rewards await those who triumph in the form of new powers and abilities, which can be combined in numerous ways to result in a multitude of diverse builds. But as players explore the labyrinthine passages of the Citadel, they’ll also encounter intriguing NPCs, compelling questlines, and a series of dark and ominous mysteries. Slowly uncover the truth behind the Old Gods and their agelong imprisonment…

One for the wishlist?
