Severed - Nintendo Switch

Drinkbox Studios’ hack ‘n slash adventure, Severed, is released today on the Nintendo Switch.

Well, this is an unexpected treat. Severed was originally released on PlayStation Vita in April 2016, before making the jump to iOS, Wii U and 3DS. We’d heard that a Nintendo Switch version was in the works, but didn’t realise it would appear quite so suddenly. It’s a welcome surprise, and another top-tier indie game for the Switch.

The game sees players take on the role of one-armed warrior Sasha, who must embark on a treacherous quest to find her family. The game features a blend of hack, slash, and swipe combat, and tricksy environmental puzzles. It’s a really fun – and beautiful – game, and a worthy followup to the studio’s equally accomplished Guacamelee!

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.
