Retro action platformer Venture Kid is coming to Switch as a console-exclusive, publisher FDG Entertainment announced.
First released for smartphones in 2016, a PC (Steam) version is also planned.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam Greenlight page:
Venture Kid is a lovingly crafted 8-bit retro action platformer that goes beyond just pixels and chiptunes. It shines with excellent level design, highly entertaining action levels, responsive controls and a great variety of bosses.
Back in the golden age of cartridge games, the development team fell in love with those highly creative games made by small teams who seemed to do wizardry with the limited hardware at that time. Many video game heroes were born back then and we’d like to rekindle one of the best series ever made. Check out the video to find out more, can you guess which one it is ?
Grab your controller, blow the dust of the D-Pad and travel back through time. Venture Kid is here to deliver!
