Marvelous Europe are today excited to announce that in partnership with XSEED Games, who are the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., will be publishing GalaxyTrail’s smash hit Freedom Planet digitally onto the Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo Switch eShop this month.
Scheduled for release on the 30th August 2018, and priced at €14.99, $14.99 and £12.99 with pre-purchase available later this month, Freedom Planet will challenge platforming fans to take back the world of Avalice and return peace to its three kingdoms for the first time on a handheld console!
In Freedom Planet you can play as one of three characters, each with her own unique gameplay style, and use their individual skills to forge a path through the gorgeous 2D pixel art and lush multi-scrolling backdrops that make up the stages in Freedom Planet.
Each character’s abilities add new ways to fell foes and traverse tumultuous terrain, employing the game’s momentum-based platforming and sprawling level designs to reward players with a seemingly bottomless barrage of secrets, alternate paths, hidden collectables, and speedrun opportunities for faster clear times.
With a traditional “Adventure Mode” on offer, featuring over an hour’s worth of fully voiced cutscenes to flesh out the game’s dramatic storyline, as well as a “Classic Mode” that does away with the story entirely and gets players straight into the action, the Nintendo Switch release of Freedom Planet offers the full, uncompromised experience at home or on the go.
About Freedom Planet:
Freedom Planet is a fast-paced combat-driven platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces. There's trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but players will have a variety of special fighting abilities at their disposal to blast through more than a dozen massive, nonlinear stages.
The campaign may be played through as Lilac, Carol, or the unlockable Milla, each of whom has completely unique gameplay mechanics, an altered story mode in which the selected character takes the lead, and even a few of her own unique stages.
- Play as one of three characters, each with her own unique gameplay style and abilities.
- Adventure Mode offers fully voiced cutscenes while Classic Mode replicates that retro platforming experience.
- Traverse tumultuous terrain with alternate paths, hidden collectables and destructive boss fights.
- The full, uncompromised experience at home or on the go on the Nintendo Switch.
Freedom Planet will be released digitally onto the Nintendo Switch eShop for the Nintendo Switch on the 30th August 2018 for €14.99, $14.99 and £12.99. Freedom Planet will also be available to pre-purchase from the Nintendo Switch eShop later this month.
