Already released on Steam, PS4, Xbox One, Humble Bundle and GOG, Songbringer is coming to the Nintendo Switch on May 31st. This is a top-down, procedurally-generated game inspired by the classic 2D games from the Legend of Zelda series. As history has indicated, these sort of classic inspired games tend to perform well on the Switch, so it will be interesting to see how this one performs.
The protagonist of Songbringer is an unassuming man named Rob Epimetheos who travels around the galaxy with his skybot, Jib, aboard his ship which is aptly named the Songbringer. He finds a humming nanosword in a cave which awakens an ancient evil and sets him upon his quest.
When you start a new game on Songbringer, you select a randomly generated 6-digit world seed. This will procedurally generate a new planet, overworld, secrets and dungeons for you to explore and discover. Additionally, the same seed can be typed in again and can be carried over between platforms which allows you give it another go or to share your experience with other players.
Some worlds can have different focuses between being more challenging with more intense enemy encounters or more of a focus on secrets and puzzles. The worlds are free to be openly explored and will always come with nine dungeons to conquer. Similar to Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, you can approach these dungeons in any order and don’t even need to have a sword to attempt them.
