Team17 and The Game Kitchen have released a new trailer for Blasphemous, a dark and brutal action-platformer that’s headed to Nintendo Switch.

Set in the savage land of Orthodoxia, you play as The Penitent One – a rogue nomad that sets out to tackle the evil in the world with only his trusty sword.

He is the sole survivor of the massacre of the Silent Sorrow – a group that was sentenced to be thrown to the great Abyss of the Eternal Grief.

With fast-paced and intense action combat lying at the game’s core, players can chain encounters to unlock the Martyr’s Excommunication mode that will see you become near unstoppable as you look to survive the hellish lands in the Age of Corruption.

Blasphemous will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2019.
