Neowiz has announced that Rootless Studio’s Metroidvania-style game 8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure has just come to Switch as a surprise announcement. It can be purchased now on the eShop.
Here’s an overview of the game:
8Doors is a story-rich adventure game that is based on the Korean myth of “Princess Bari” and follows ‘Arum’ as she ventures deep into the afterlife in search of her father’s soul. Along the way she’ll have to navigate a treacherous path through purgatory which is beautifully presented in just three colors; Red, White and Black. 8Doors features a sprawling map that has 8 distinct regions (one for each “Door of Purgatory”) and a wide range of monsters and bosses that bring Korean folktales to life. Arum can also wield 7 different weapons and utilize a multitude of skills to help her fend off the 36 different types of specters that she’ll encounter on the journey.
We also have the following trailer:
8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure can be purchased now on the Switch eShop for $19.99. For a limited time, fans can save 20 percent.
