Posted on March 13, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Update (3/14): The same March 21 date is now confirmed for North America and Europe. Pricing is set at $4.99 / €4.99.

Original (3/13): Witch & Hero, previously a 3DS title, will soon be making the jump to Switch. Flyhigh Works has announced that the 8-bit action game will be appearing on the eShop in Japan on March 21.

Here’s an overview of the original 3DS release as well as a new Switch trailer:

Medusa turned the witch into stone, so she is no longer able to move. So it’s up to the hero to defeat the monsters and collect their blood in order to recover the witch for a limited duration. The witch’s destructive magic easily destroys monsters, but you will have to rely on the hero’s will power primarily. He is able to try and try again, but the witch cannot, thus the hero must protect her.


-Retro 8-bit pixel graphics and sound, along with simple controls
-Wipe out huge waves of monsters through 20 stages with 2 difficulties
-Choose between Trial mode and infinite mode for an in-depth challenge

Though Witch & Hero hasn’t been dated for the west yet, it should be out around the same time. We’ll pass along the final overseas release date when we have it.
