A gorgeous adventure of aviary proportions is now on heading to the Nintendo Switch!
According to a recent report by Gematsu, developer Pixelnicks will be porting over Eagle Island to the Switch eShop. The studio hopes to launch both the PC and Switch versions simultaneously in February 2019 – but delays in Nintendo’s approval process could push the game back to March.
While we await more news and details about this beautiful game, you can check out its Steam trailer below.
Explore the avian world of Eagle Island with Quill and one of his loyal owls, Koji. Discover lush forests, treacherous caverns and uncover the ruins of long lost civilizations. Finally, confront the gargantuan deity, Armaura, in a desperate attempt to rescue Ichiro from her clutches.
With its falconry-based gameplay within uniquely generated worlds, Eagle Island is set to a beautifully modernized pixel art aesthetic and provides a breath of fresh air to the platforming genre.
Taking inspiration from the roguelike and metroidvania genres, players of Eagle Island can enjoy either short runs or a longer story based experience.

- Fully procedurally generated worlds.
- 85 different perk abilities to mix up the gameplay each run.
- Magical feathers transform your owl into elemental forms.
