Anodyne confirmed for Switch, out this month
Posted on February 14, 2019 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Back in 2017, we heard that publisher Nnooo was considering several games for Switch – including Anodyne. Today we have confirmation that the game will indeed be released on the platform.
Here’s an introduction to the “Zelda-lite” game:
Anodyne takes place in the haunting, vibrant subconscious mind of the game’s protagonist, Young. You are tasked with navigating the various natural, urban and abstract environments within Young’s innermost self to help sweep away demons, defeat enemies and solve Young’s personal puzzles with their only weapon, a trusty broom! Clear out the dungeons, meander through Young’s own mind, and collect cards to advance further into the game as Young grows in confidence and ability, ready to rescue The Legendary Briar from the Evil Darkness.
Anodyne harks back to classic 16-bit action-adventure games while creating its own unique feel. It incorporates a large overworld with many quirky, challenging dungeons filled with a variety of unusual enemies. This is overlaid with an unsettling musical score which adds to the feel of an uneasy, dreamlike experience.
And a couple of trailers:
Anodyne launches February 28 on Switch, with pre-orders opening one week prior. Pricing is set at $9.99 / €9.99 / £8.99 / AU$14.99.
