AeternoBlade coming to Switch on February 1

Plus, a three-second GIF of AeternoBlade II.


AeternoBlade is coming to Switch on February 1, developer Corecell Technology announced.

The side-scrolling action adventure game first launched for 3DS in February 2014, followed by PS Vita in February 2015, PlayStation 4 in August 2015, and Xbox One in August 2017.

Here is an overview of the game, via Corecell Technology:

In the region of Awelsia, vengeful Freyja travels with an unknown weapon called “AeternoBlade.” Freyja looks to take revenge on Beladim, the Lord of the Mist who destroyed her village, Ridgerode, and killed her tribe. Her vengeance is helped by Vernia, who has as much merit as Beladim. Vernia taught Freya about the abilities of AeternoBlade. Freya has to venture into many different world dimensions to discover how to annihilate Beladim.

What is AeternoBlade? How can Freya take revenge on Beladim? Solve tons of mysteries in her adventure together!

An Indiegogo campaign for a sequel, AeternoBlade II, was launched in May 2017, but failed to meet its $30,000 funding goal. In an August 2017 update, Corecell Technology said it will continue to look for a way to complete AeternoBlade II, such as by releasing the original game on Xbox One later that month. In today’s announcement for AeternoBlade on Switch, Corecell Technology included the following GIF of the sequel:
