Digerati and Paper Castle have revealed that Underhero will release on Nintendo Switch this week.

This colourful 2D RPG-platformer has taken inspiration from Paper Mario and many other RPGs.

The chosen hero has failed and you, as an underling of the evil boss Mr Stitches, begrudgingly must set out on a perilous quest to take their place.

With help from a magical companion, you must purge all evil from the Chestnut Kingdom. That will see you battle it out with a timing-based combat system and face off against quirky bosses.

“Underhero began as a humble passion project inspired by our love for Nintendo RPGs,” explains Paper Castle’s Kay and Andie.

“After many years of hard work, we are extremely happy to share the world we’ve created with a bigger audience than ever before. Get ready to experience a unique battle system and a subversive story full of twists and turns, now on your favourite console!”

Underhero will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 13th February 2020, with a 20 percent launch discount.
