Sonic-alike indie title Freedom Planet is coming to Switchon August 10, 2018 by Reuben Mount
You might all not remember this, but there was a delightful platformer a couple of years back from GalaxyTrail that was inspired by classic Sonic games and gained a lot of popularity. This game was Freedom Planet, and Marvelous Europe and XSEED Games today confirmed that they’re bringing it to Switch in the West on August 30th.
Freedom Planet is a fast-paced, combat-driven platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces set in the world of Avalice. The player can choose one of three characters – Lilac, Carol or the unlockable Milla – each with their own unique gameplay style, and use their individual skills to forge a path through the gorgeous 2D pixel art and lush multi-scrolling backdrops.
Each character’s abilities add new ways to fell foes and traverse tumultuous terrain, employing the game’s momentum-based platforming and sprawling level designs to reward players with a seemingly bottomless barrage of secrets, alternate paths, hidden collectables, and speed run opportunities for faster clear times. The Switch version contains both a traditional ‘Adventure Mode’ featuring over an hour’s worth of fully voiced cutscenes to enhance the game’s dramatic storyline, and a ‘Classic Mode’ to get players straight into the action.
Freedom Planet is coming to Nintendo Switch on August 30th.
