Valfaris will launch physically for PlayStation 4 and Switch via distributor Merge Games in November, publisher Big Sugar and developer Steel Mantis announced.
A digital release is also due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam sometime in 2019.
Here is an overview of the game, via Merge Games:
Set in a far corner of space, Valfaris is a heavy metal infused 2D action-platformer and the next game from the team behind Slain: Back From Hell.
After mysteriously vanishing from galactic charts, the fortress of Valfaris has suddenly reappeared in the orbit of a dying sun. Once a self-contained paradise, the grandiose citadel now plays host to an ever-growing darkness. Therion, a fearless and proud son of Valfaris, returns to his home to uncover the truth of its doomed fate and to challenge the arcane evil at its very heart.
