Launching on August 18th, Swords & Souls: Neverseen will be the first entry in the cult classic series to be released on a home console.
The original Swords & Souls game was the #1 game on popular web game portals Kongregate and Armor Games. The latest entry in the series, Swords & Souls: Neverseen originally launched on Steam in 2019 and is a love letter to both the series and its fans. Neverseen, while still retaining the original’s iconic mix of turn-based and real-time gameplay, introduced significant improvements to the game’s mechanics and design. The game will celebrate its second anniversary on Steam this July 22.
In Swords & Souls: Neverseen, players are tasked with battling across the lands of The Neverseen in order to foil the plans of an evil witch after being shipwrecked by a mysterious force. In a unique twist on RPG gameplay, player characters are levelled up via varied and exciting skill-based mini games.
The Swords & Souls titles are beloved by players worldwide for their digestible and approachable game mechanics. This makes Neverseen a natural fit for the Nintendo Switch platform, as it would allow a wider audience of RPG fans to experience the franchise for the first time.
Séverin Larose, designer at SoulGame Studio said: “We grew up playing the NES and Super NES so I couldn’t be more proud to see our game coming out on Switch. We humbly hope that it will contribute to the joyful Nintendo experience.”
Swords & Souls: Neverseen launches on Nintendo Switch on August 18th via the eShop, priced $14.99 / £13.49 / €14.99
The game will be localized in English, French, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Russian.
