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!
Severed is released on the Nintendo eShop today in North America and Europe and is priced $14.99, €14.99 and £13.49.
