Wolf Brew Games has announced that Slain: Back from Hell will be coming to Nintendo Switch.
The game offers players a retro-style side scrolling effort, with a 16-bit visual experience that leans on influences of the likes of legendary gaming franchises such as Castlevania. Slain has previously released on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Vita, and presents a game that is arguably one of the more difficult games out there, paying homage to games of the past with unforgiving difficulty levels.
It hasn’t also been smooth sailing for Wolf Brew Games mind, at least where Slain is concerned. When it originally released in March 2016, it got off to a rather disappointing start, courtesy of what were considered to be poor design choices, plentiful glitches and artificial difficulty. It was since re-released under the sub-title Back from Hell, with the issues that plagued the original version fixed out.
It makes sense for Slain to make its mark on the new Nintendo console, as it is a clear nod in replicating many games of the SNES era. If difficult side-scrollers are your kind of thing, then Slain is most certainly something that you’ll want to check out. If all things gothic and heavy metal appeal to you too, then that will be an added bonus too.
Slain: Back from Hell will land on Nintendo Switch on November 7th, and is already available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Vita.
