Retroid has announced that Wunderling is in development for Nintendo Switch.
In this 2D platformer, you play as a low-level video game goon who has just been revived by the evil sorceress Kohlrabi and given the ability to jump.
Wanting to tighten her control over the Vegetable Kingdom and defeat the Carrot Man – its hero – she tasks the Wunderling with protecting her prisoner, Princess Pea.
Unable to stop or change direction at will, you must plan ahead and use the Wunderling’s special abilities to beat each level.
“Being on a Nintendo platform is surreal – almost dream-like. We’re thrilled that our little indie game will get a shot at a huge audience through one of the world’s most beloved consoles,” explains Retroid producer and game designer Niklas Istenes.
“When designing Wunderling, we originally wanted to create an adventure game based around a single button and show that you can indeed make a traditional platformer with that premise.
“In Wunderling, you clear levels like traditional platform games – and you even have boss stages! We eventually added more buttons, but the game can still be played with one hand.”
Wunderling will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
