Intragames and Digital Tales today announced that the 2D Metroidvania adventure Bookbound Brigade is heading to Nintendo Switch later this year. The game will be playable at Gamescom 2019 from August 20 – 24.
About the game
Bookbound Brigade is about beating the hell out of historical and literary characters you studied in school by leading a dream team of real and fictional heroes through a 2D side-scrolling platform-adventure. It is a new take on the established Metroidvania genre where classic stories and well-known characters get the video game treatment: its unique artistic identity and innovative brigade mechanics will challenge players with a quirky narrative and some fresh gameplay.
- Explore, fight, backtrack, grow your skills and tackle challenging quests and puzzles, as in any Metroidvania game worthy of its name, but get ready for a twist…
- There is no single hero in Bookbound Brigade: you play as a party of unique characters, each with their own traits and skills, who move in formation and fight as one.
- All the characters, both playing and non-playing, are drawn from the pages of history and literature, so expect to meet some familiar and less familiar faces!
- The distinctive hand-drawn visuals, inspired by book illustration from all time, stray far from the pixel art dominating the Metroidvania genre.
