Salt and Sanctuary is heading to the Switch

Souls-inspired RPG Salt and Sanctuary is heading to Nintendo Switch on August 2, developer Ska Studios has announced.

Salt and Sanctuary was originally released on PlayStation 4 and PC back in 2016, and has notched up over 800,000 download to date. The game sees players shipwrecked on a mysterious island populated by undead foes, where you'll fling magic and wield more than 16 different weapon types against the lumbering hordes to stay alive.

What's more, the brutal actioner includes a New Game+ option and multiple endings to unearth, so there's plenty of opportunity for replay value. Furthermore, those who seek a greater challenge can play Salt and Sanctuary with various challenges active, including eschewing the ability to block or roll. Ouch.

You won't be on your Billy No Mates all the time, though. There's local co-op and versus modes available, while asynchronous features allow you to share messages with other players.

'The two of us wanted to create a Soulslike game that we wanted to play, and finding that so many others who wanted it too warmed our dark little hearts,' said Ska Studios co-creators, Michelle and James Silva. 'Bringing Salt and Sanctuary to the Nintendo Switch means more people who like dismal, satisfying games can play our very dismal, satisfying game.'

Ska Studios also confirmed that it will launch a Salt and Sanctuary: Drowned Tome Edition this holiday season, although full details have yet to be revealed.
