Some awesome old-school combat-driven platforming on the go!
XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc, today announced that indie developer GalaxyTrail’s smash hit Freedom Planet will be releasing onto the Nintendo Switch digitally on August 30th, 2018! For those don’t know, Freedom Planet is a fast-paced combat-driven platform adventure that pits Lilac and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces. There’s trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but players will have a variety of special fighting abilities at their disposal to blast through more than a dozen massive, nonlinear stages. The campaign may be played through Lilac, Carol, or the unlockable Milla, each of whom has completely unique gameplay mechanics, an altered story mode in which the selected character takes the lead, and even a few of her own unique stages.
With traditional “Adventure Mode” on offer, featuring over an hour’s worth of fully voiced cutscenes to flesh out the game’s dramatic storyline, as well as a “Classic Mode” that does away with the story entirely and gets players straight into the action, the Nintendo Switch release of Freedom Planet offers the full, superb experience at home on on the go.
If you are interested in picking up Freedom Planet when it releases later this August, it will be available on the Nintendo eShop for $14.99, €14.99, and £12.99.
