Severed confirmed for iOS, 3DS and Wii U

We all expected Severed would come to iOS, and now it is.




We all expected Severed would come to iOS, and now it is.

An iOS release for Severed always seemed a given, despite its PS Vita focused launch. In fact, it was touted as an iPhone title early in development when DrinkBox were interviewed by Edge magazine. But a 3DS and Wii U port? That’s kind of unexpected, and very welcome. As is the fact that the game will be cross-buy on Nintendo’s consoles.

Severed places you in the role of one-armed warrior Sasha, who explores and fights through a vibrant world using a variety of swipe-based gestures. We played the PS Vita version at GDC and enjoyed its beautiful aesthetics and gruesome, tactile combat.


Graham Smith, co-founder of Drinkbox Studios said:

“We’re very pleased to be able to bring Severed to major touch-enabled platforms. The game’s recent release on the Vita was well-received by critics and fans alike, and we look forward to bringing the experience to Apple and Nintendo fans.”

Severed is scheduled for release this Summer on iOS, Wii U and DS.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
