Selecta Play and Dormidin Studio have announced that their Metroidvana-inspired 2D action platformer Barbarian Saga: The Beastmaster will be released on Nintendo Switch.

The world of Arborea lies in devastation after the wars of the portals, and, after a brief piece, its inhabitants are now threatened once again by conflict. Together with the Sacred Kingdom, Imperia’s new king has declared war against non-humans using Trece XIII – one of the last wizards of Arborea – and their generals.

Having taken inspiration from classic movies and games from the ’80s and ’90s like Beastmaster, Conan, Deathstalker, Castlevania, Golden Axe and Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, you will have a chance to witness the moment of prophecy when a chosen one will unite men and beasts to restore peace to the world.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • You are the last of the Beastmaster, use the souls of animals/creatures to transform and progress in the adventure.
  • A continuous Metroidvania-style map, open new paths or unlock new routes with your Beastmaster abilities, evil and sorcery lurks in all corners.
  • Gather beads for your ritual necklace: you will get fangs, amulets, and plant roots that will change your attacks, vitality, or Mana.
  • Enter into a duel in the different Arenas the battle will be with a close camera and energy bars like in the classic fighting games. In the Arena you can enhance your skills and get unique items.
  • Find new sword techniques that your old Sensei taught you, use magic potions or summons curses. Thanks to your sword, you can get the power of a god.
  • Throughout your adventure you will find many NPCs (Non-Playing Characters) that will give more strength to the narrative of the story, dealing with them will open the possibility of knowing new missions, arcs (as in an Anime series) and complete different endings.

Barbarian Saga: The Beastmaster will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2024.
