Those who have played the hit indie game OWLBOY may be excited to hear that it is coming to the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4 on February 13th. On top of that, it is also getting a physical release on both platforms.
“We’ve had to keep quiet about this for some time, but now I can finally announce our first physical Switch game! Owlboy is a really great title to start off our Switch line-up with, but we’ve certainly got more coming up''. -Hans van Brakel, Executive Manager at SOEDESCO
For those that have never heard of Owlboy and are interested in its visuals and story, here is a rundown of the game:
Owlboy tells the touching story of owl misfit Otus, a feathery little fellow struggling to live the owl life. Fate strikes when Otus’ beautiful homeland is invaded by a horde of malicious sky pirates. Otus embarks on a fascinating journey through seemingly endless skies and mysterious, monster infested ruins. He must recruit his friends to employ their special puzzling- and combat skills, fight his foes and fly his way to safety.
It's an interesting little indie game with a very interesting aesthetic, You don't actually fight yourself in the game instead you pick up others and have them help you along on the journey. If you have never played it I highly recommend it as it is a very fitting title for the Nintendo Switch. Here is the launch trailer for those of you who are interested in seeing and learning more about the game:
