Black Bird, from the creator of Little King’s Story, was added to the Switch eShop this past week. Have a look at some footage below.

Black Bird was recently dated for October 18 in Japan. As it turns out, that applies to North America and Europe as well. Black Bird has received eShop pages in both regions, confirming the date.

Here’s an overview for Black Bird:

Originally, Black Bird, a 2D shoot-em-up from Onion Games, was supposed to launch on Nintendo Switch this Summer. Summer has come and gone without the game releasing, but today Onion Games announced a new, concrete release date for the game, at least in Japan: October 18th. The game will be available digitally for 1,980 Yen.
