It’s been a little bit since we last heard about the Switch version of Tiny Thor, but a release date is now here and the game isn’t very far away at all. IndieForge and Asylum Square have revealed that the 16-bit platformer is heading to the console on August 3, 2023.
We previously reported on Tiny Thor back in February. The PC version came out in June, but we’ve been waiting to hear when the Switch version would debut.
For those that need a recap, check out the following overview:
Tiny Thor features 16-bit graphics and gameplay centered around using Mjölnir, leading our Norse hero through challenging levels filled with all kinds of obstacles. It offers tight controls, fast-paced action and an experience tinged with nostalgia.
“It’s your birthday Thor! Now take Mjölnir, the hammer that never misses its target!” – Odin
Everything has been carefully designed around this premise. The hammer can be freely aimed and bounces off surfaces and enemies, enabling all kinds of trick shots.
Tiny Thor will feel familiar to retro fans, but also unique in its own ways. It features true 16-bit pixel art from Henk Nieborg and an original soundtrack by Chris Hülsbeck. Starting as a relatively simple platformer, Tiny Thor unfolds along the way, as you unlock all kinds of abilities that you dreamed of having back in the day.
The platforming is punctuated with exhilarating boss battles which will test the son of Odin.
Each realm features a set of almighty adversaries who want to stop Thor on his way to becoming a true god. You will need to make use of everything you learned along the way to beat them!
