Witch and Hero

The Switch version of Witch and Hero will launch via the Nintendo eShop on March 21 in the west for $4.99 / €4.99, day and date with its Japanese release, publisher Flyhigh Works announced.

The 8-bit style action game first launched for iOS in August 2012, followed by 3DS in April 2013, and PC in April 2016.

Here is an overview of the game, via Flyhigh Works:

Witch and Hero is an 8-bit style action game that can be played by anyone!

You play as a Hero accompanied by a Witch; you are seeking revenge, and justice, over the evil Medusa. Medusa turned the witch into stone, so she is no longer able to move; it’s up to the Hero to defeat the monsters and collect their blood in order to recover the Witch for a limited period of time.

This game includes plenty of challenging stages / arenas in which you use ‘bump’ combat to take on waves of colorful foes. The Hero leads the fight but can revive the Witch to unleash her destructive powers; as the waves of enemies become stronger they will need to work together! In this Nintendo Switch version you also have the option of co-operative play to take on the challenge with a friend.

Witch and Hero has been enhanced for the Nintendo Switch and HD displays, while retaining its original 8-bit pixel graphics and sound.
