Prepare to die, in this gorgeous 2D take on the Dark Souls formula.
Do you remember Salt and Sanctuary? The excellent 2D Souls-like game launched originally on PS4, with a PS Vita and PC release following afterwards. It was a great game, and a wonderful translation of the Souls concept to the 2D sidescroller format. Now, it will be coming to Nintendo’s Switch.
Ska Studios announced today that they will be bringing the game to Nintendo’s hybrid on August 2 (as in, literally next week), with BlitWorks having been brought in to help them out with the port. It will be available for $18, and will launch with support for a whole host of languages- English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Plus, if you like your games physical, even on Switch for some reason, there’s more good news- Salt and Sanctuary: Drowned Tome Edition will be available at retail this Holiday season.
Given the success of games like Hollow Knight on Switch, as well as the continued, inexplicable delays the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered is suffering, this is sure to find an enthusiastic and receptive audience on the Switch. You can check out a trailer for it below.
