Indie Hack and Slash Adventure Game ‘Severed’ Comes to the Nintendo Switch (VIDEO)
Severed, the critically-acclaimed and well-received hack-and-slash adventure game is now available for the Nintendo Switch. Known for its fun, bright yet macabre style as well as the combat and gameplay mechanics, this DrinkBox Studios is the perfect fit for the console. Players get to assume the role of Sasha, a warrior with one arm who wields a living sword. In order to find her family and escape the the nightmare fuel hellscape of a world, she must fight her way through the demons and challenges that hinder her journey. There are puzzles, secrets, and plenty of hacking and slashing to carry out too. For a peek at how it looks and plays, check out the Nintendo Switch launch trailer below:
Take control of a one-armed warrior named Sasha, wielding a living sword on her journey through a nightmare world in search of her family. Swipe-based touch controls will let you solve puzzles, find secrets, and do battle with a host of disturbing monsters. As the journey goes on, you’ll unlock new abilities, ascend an RPG-style upgrade tree, and tease apart the mysteries of the dark fantasy universe Sasha finds herself in.”
As on might have guessed, ‘severing’ is part of the fighting style in the game. With each enemy encounter, there’s a chance of relieving enemies of their previous body parts and Sasha can wear them too. By sporting their horns, faces, or mouths like this season’s accessories, Sasha can gain new powers and abilities. It’s either that or use them as upgrades for other equipment. It’s not like that toothy demon needed a face anyway. Aside from that, there are classic RPG elements including the need to upgrade and level up a skill tree.
Pick up Severed for $14.99 on the Nintendo eShop or any of the before-mentioned platforms (PS Vita, WiiU, 3DS, and iOS) for North America and Europe. What are your thoughts on Severed?
