Microids has signed an international co-publishing agreement with bilibili to produce a physical release for F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch on Nintendo Switch.

It has been six years since the Legion invaded and colonised the Torch City, and Rayton, a former soldier in the resistance war, has been living in seclusion. After his friend is arrested, he reclaims his mechanical fist and decides to fight back against their oppressors.

This is the 3D Metroidvania action game from developer TiGames, which has been created using Unreal Engine 4. Set in a dieselpunk world, you must overcome puzzles and challenges that lie hidden in a “sophisticated and interconnected” game map that is worth exploring. The developer promises a “hardcore arcade-style experience,” with multiple weapons to wield, magnificent combos to unleash and upgradeable skills.

“We see this cooperation on the physical release of F.I.S.T. has a special meaning for bilibili Game. We hope the great potential of Chinese indie games can be discovered by console players around the world,” explains bilibili senior vice president Zhang Feng.

TiGames CEO and producer Zhang Tao adds: “After the launch of F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch we’ve received many good reviews from players worldwide, and one of the frequently asked question was about its physical release in Europe and America. Thankfully, with the help of bilibili and Microids, the question can finally be answered. We hope the physical versions will provide challenge-hungry players with an enjoyable adventure in Torch City. Thank you as always for the warm support!”

Microids senior vice president of strategic partnerships Yves Bléhaut adds: “This co-publishing agreement follows the recent opening of our office in China and marks a new milestone in the development of our activity in this key territory, with the support of major local video game companies.”

Microids greater China market development director Wenbin Zhang adds: “Working on the retail versions of F.I.S.T. represents an exciting new challenge for us. It’s a true honour to be collaborating with TiGames and bilibili. We cannot wait to contribute to the game’s success internationally by providing our expertise in terms of publishing and distribution!”

F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q3 2022.
