Publisher Nicalis has announced that it is bringing Pixelian Studio's Critadel to Switch later this year.

Described as a "futuristic platformer/shooter/roguelike", Critadel sees players climbing up a giant mechanical tower as they face off against the evil Forces of Noah, an organisation that has taken control of the structure and is hell-bent on finding the secret of eternal life.

Three upgradeable characters are on offer, and hundreds of "continuously reconfigured branching paths" are included. There are also over 100,000 weapon and item configurations, which should offer a new experience each and every time you play.

Boasting "hardcore action" and "GBA-inspired graphics" accompanied by "a pulse-pounding techno soundtrack", Critadel's previous title was Babel. It's been in development for five years and is also coming to PC, via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Critadel will be available digitally in Q4 2021 and will retail for $19.99.
