Elden Pixels and Decemberborn Interactive have dated the Switch version of Cathedral. The Metroidvania game will arrive digitally on February 18, the two sides announced today.

Here’s some information about Cathedral as well as a trailer:

Developed by Decemberborn Interactive and published by Elden Pixels, Cathedral has been lovingly brought over to Nintendo Switch. On PC the game already has a cult following among metroidvania enthusiasts, with an 87% positive user rating. On Nintendo Switch Cathedral finds its natural home, having been inspired by classic platform and metroidvania games from the NES and SNES era.

With over 600 rooms to explore across its huge interconnected world map, Cathedral presents an 8-bit audiovisual feast that has been created with contemporary metroidvania game design principles. Cathedral’s expansive map is completely hand-crafted in meticulous pixel art detail, filled to the brim with all sorts of locations, secrets, puzzles, items and special challenges. Using the handy map feature is a must for gamers wanting to uncover every mystery this game holds. Prepare for a rollicking, noble adventure that will challenge and entertain for hours!

In Cathedral, players wake up in a world with no recollection of how they got there. Control a nameless knight from a different world, who teams up with a spirit known as Soul. Explore the world together to figure out who you are, how you got there, and most importantly, how to get back home. Unravel the secrets of the knight’s past by finding five legendary elemental orbs. The orbs, placed in ancient times by the demi-god known only as Ardur, are protected by five fearsome guardians. Make your way through their dungeons, meet them head-on in combat, and see if you can defeat and claim the treasure they are guarding! In classic metroidvania fashion, on your journey you’ll find a host of items that allow you to explore the world even further, reaching new areas, secrets and surprises!

Cathedral is coming to Nintendo Switch February 18th, where it will be available for purchase on the eShop £12.59 / $14.99 / €13.99. Pre-order the game from today for a 20% discount. The game is also available now on Steam
