Today’s Nintendo eShop news: Aggelos announced for the Nintendo Switch, but also…

  • Fortnite
  • Paranautical Activity


Last week, Pqube, LookAtMyGame, and Wonderboy Bobi announced that Aggelos (a retro-styled 2D action-adventure) was headed to the Nintendo Switch). It will be released later this year in Europe and North America, and will cost 12.49€ / $14.99 / £11.39.

Here’s all you need to know:

Step through time and discover a mesmerizing new action-RPG that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 16-bit era but plays like a modern-day marvel. Inspired by non-linear Japanese retro adventures such as Wonder Boy In Monster World, Aggelos hurls players into the middle of a colossal struggle for survival as beings from another dimension threaten to invade the peaceful Kingdom of Lumen.

Bursting with secrets and side-quests, and boasting slick melee combat that any 2D action game would envy, Aggelos is the perfect combination of retro style and modern-day game design.

  • A vast kingdom to explore. Venture through forests, seas, cave systems and ancient temples as you seek to uncover the magical elements needed to save the world from total annihilation.
  • A classical non-linear adventure. Explore a sprawling world that gradually reveals itself, Metroidvania-style, as you gain new abilities and equipment.
  • Deadly encounters. Thwart towering bosses and their tricky minions as you take on perilous mainline quests and optional odd-jobs for the people of Lumen.
  • Tactical depth. Unlock magical abilities and high-level attacks, expertly chaining these immense powers together to clear screens of enemies in seconds
  • Stunning sprite art. Forget out-of-place modern art: Aggelos boasts superlative character designs and animations while remaining proudly, and faithfully, 16-bit through and through.
  • Memorable chiptunes. Lose yourself to a retro-inspired soundtrack that floods the Kingdom of Lumen with life.

Aggelos (Switch – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
