Last month Nicalis revealed it would be bringing Critadel by Pixelian Studio (a small three-person development team based in Seoul, South Korea) to the Nintendo Switch at some point this year.

It's now locked in for a release on 13th October and will be priced at $19.99 USD. If you missed our original post, it's a new futuristic platformer/shooter/roguelike action game in which players run, jump and blast through convoluted pathways and secret chambers of a giant mechanical tower.

A 360-degree cursor allows ranged attacks in any direction and enemies include "deadly bosses and minions" of the "Order of Noah" - an evil faction that has seized control of the tower and seeks to recover ancient knowledge to grant eternal life.

Apart from being a combination of genres, Critadel is also described as being a "hardcore action game" with "GBA-inspired graphics" and a "pulse-pounding" techno soundtrack. The game has been in the works for five years and will feature three upgradable characters, "hundreds" of branching paths and over 100,000 possible weapon and item configurations.
