Publisher JanduSoft has announced Zapling Bygone, a "twisted" new Metroidvania that's heading to the Switch on March 9th, 2023.

Developed by 9FingerGames, Zapling Bygone sees you murder your foes and steal their skulls to learn their unique abilities, absorbing their consciousness into your hive-mind.

- A pixelart metroidvania created by a solodev.
- Tight but fair precision platforming.
- Rewards exploration, with hidden secrets around every corner.
- Piece together the history of an alien planet, while fighting off a foe from home.
