Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP will be launching on Switch eShop right before this month ends, Capybara Games announced.
First released in 2011 on mobile platforms, this indie title has been described as “an exploratory adventure with an emphasis on audiovisual style.” Also, according to the developers, the game will make use of the Switch’s many features – mainly the touchscreen, the Joy-cons and Pro Controller, as alternative controls, among others. However, this time, Twitter support has been removed from the game.
