Big Sugar and 2 Ton Studios have announced that Unto The End will release on Nintendo Switch.

This 2D cinematic combat-adventure will let you experience the journey of a humble father, as he sets out on an arduous trek to be reunited with his family.

The nuanced combat system will challenge you to read, react, and counter enemy attacks, with the chance to strike tactically with ranged weapons or even use your enemies against each other.

“From the very start, we knew we wanted a minimal art style with a side-on presentation, and gameplay that focused on player skill,” game designer and animator Stephen Danton explains.

“We also didn’t want to copy-paste an existing game model, or simply make a puzzle-platformer, roguelike, Metroidvania or 2D Dark Souls.

“So we spent a lot of time trying out ideas. And although that’s fun, it’s also really scary because there’s not much there to guide you. In the end, we landed on a few simple ideas and then spent a bunch of time refining them.

“Unto is a focused experience. It’s handcrafted and values quality over quantity. When it’s all done, we hope players enjoy its challenges and come away feeling a real sense of mastery and accomplishment.”

Unto The End will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2019.
