It’s been a long while since we last heard about Aeternoblade II, the sequel to the Nintendo 3DS action-platformer from Corecell Technology. And there’s a good reason for that: development has been anything but smooth sailing so far. As a matter of fact, the entire artist team resigned a month ago, so they had no choice but to completely rework the art direction.
They also reveal that the game is not coming to the Nintendo 3DS anymore. Not surprising, since the game is running on Unreal Engine 4, and the developers really want to make use of the engine. Instead, Corecell Technology is planning to release Aeternoblade II on the Nintendo Switch, which does happen to support the “new” engine.
Here’s the Facebook message in full:
Hi, Everybody who waiting for AeternoBlade II. It’s been a while since we are developing AE2. It is a bad news that our artist team resigned a month ago so we have to re-work on the new Art direction. Yes, It is a long road and many problems occur.But, we never give up!
Our goal is making AE2 to be quality game for our fan.
To reach that point.
We are going to need your help and support soon on our INDIEGOGO campaign.
Please lend us your AeternoBlade power and see you in INDIEGOGO soon!
Unfortunately, it’s not clear when Aeternoblade II will be released, but it most definitely will not be before a long while… After all, we don’t even know when the Indiegogo campaign will go live. In the mean time, the Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
