Already available digitally, Bat Boy is now getting the physical treatment on Switch. Limited Run Games will be producing the boxed copy.

As of now only a standard edition is in production. No special editions are planned currently.

Bat Boy release date

Bat Boy, the 8-bit platformer from X Plus and Sonzai Games, has just been given a release date. The two sides have confirmed it’s heading to Switch on May 25, 2023.

We originally reported on Bat Boy in 2021. The project was initially planned for 2022.

A few weeks ago, it was announced that a handful of games published by Dangen Entertainment would be receiving major updates. The first of these, a “Forged in Hell” update for strategy action-platformer Smelter, has just been released.

Smelter’s “Forged in Hell” update is adding a couple of different modes to the game, including a Boss Rush mode whihc lets you fight various bosses in quick succession, and an Action mode which does away with the strategy component of the game, instead focusing solely on the action-platforming.
