Nintendo Switch Gets Riverbond, Family-Friendly Co-op Dungeon Crawler Today
Free Content Update, Launch Discount, Steam Remote Play Together
TORONTO – 10 Dec. 2019 – Riverbond, the shoot-and-slash dungeon crawler from Cococucumber, welcomes solo adventurers and couch co-op friends with a brand new world “Crystalwatch” and an abundance of new skins on Nintendo Switch today. This free update also brings the treasure trove of new content for free to Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Set out for epic adventure through nine fantastical worlds, beautifully rendered in a charming voxel art style. An ethereal land awaits with the newest addition of Crystalwatch, where fearsome lizard foes and peaceful badger monks clash in brilliant crystalline environments. Hack, slash and explode hordes of adorable enemies solo or with drop-in party members. Explore soaring castles and wonderous valleys to unearth swords, spears, laser guns, and a plethora of quirky weapons.
Riverbond’s enchanting adventures and cute characters—including indie crossover skins like Shovel Knight, Raz Aquato from Psychonauts, The Kid from Bastion, Spelunky Guy, and more—belie tightly focused combat with lightning speed. Venture into the nooks and crannies of each level in search of loot, complete mission objectives and slice through mobs of enemies to level the field in fearsome boss fights.
Team up with up to four players on the couch to bash some baddies or, on Steam, tap into Steam Remote Play Together to unite friends from afar to play co-operatively online. With a responsive hack and slash controls and retro action that pays homage to top-down adventures of yesteryear, Riverbond breathes new life with vibrant voxels and classic drop-in, drop-out co-op.
