Double Eleven and Wizard Fu Games announced that the Nintendo Switch version of the space adventure game featuring a shirtless dude who must save the universe from an ancient evil, will make its way to the Nintendo Switch at the end of the month starting May 31st.
Songbird is themed around a humorous take on the archetypical Hero’s Journey, featuring cool music, larger-than-life boss battles, and sword duels for the ages.
The Nintendo Switch version will also come with all previously released DLC, including the Trial of Ren. You can check out the gameplay trailer below to get an inkling of an idea as to what you can expect from the hack-and-slash adventure game.
The game is about Roq, who ends up journeying to an alien planet where where there are mysterious powers that are attached to himself and the typical evil present in the land.
Players will be accompanied by the robot, Jib, who will help Roq explore the world, unlock new powers, venture through dungeons, kill bosses, and get stronger.
The game’s world changes on each playthrough after players choose a six-letter seed. The world generation will allow players to replay through the game again with a whole new dungeon and overworld layout, which can theoretically create infinite amounts of replayability. I don’t know how well these features work out because I rarely ever hear or see gamers talking about the random world generation at the start of a playthrough and whether or not it makes any kind of a significant difference in how well the game world shapes to the adventure and the challenge of the experience.
Anyway, if you missed out on the game when it first came out back in 2017 for home consoles and PC and you’re interested in picking up a copy compatible with the Switch’s portability, you can do so beginning May 31st next week.
