Retro-Styled Action-Adventure Aggelos Coming To Nintendo Switch In 2018

PQube, LookAtMyGame and developer Wonderboy Bobi today announced that the retro-styled 2D action-adventure Aggelos is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018.

Step through time and discover a mesmerizing new action-RPG that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 16-bit era but plays like a modern-day marvel. Inspired by non-linear Japanese retro adventures such as Wonder Boy In Monster World, Aggelos hurls players into the middle of a colossal struggle for survival as beings from another dimension threaten to invade the peaceful Kingdom of Lumen.

Bursting with secrets and side-quests, and boasting slick melee combat that any 2D action game would envy, Aggelos is the perfect combination of retro style and modern-day game design.
