Gothenburg, Sweden – February 18th, 2021 – Decemberborn Interactive and Elden Pixels are proud to announce that the acclaimed 8-bit metroidvania adventure Cathedral is out now on the eShop for Nintendo Switch. Cathedral is available for purchase now, priced at £12.59 / $14.99 / €13.99.
Developed by Decemberborn Interactive and published by Elden Pixels, Cathedral has been lovingly brought over to Nintendo Switch. On PC the game already has a cult following among metroidvania enthusiasts, with an 86% positive user rating. On Nintendo Switch Cathedral finds its natural home, having been inspired by classic platform and metroidvania games from the NES and SNES era.
“Finally Cathedral is available on Nintendo Switch. It’s so surreal to be able to play our game on a Nintendo platform, it feels like we’ve come full circle from our original inspiration to where we are now,” said Eric Lavesson of Decemberborn Interactive. “We want to thank everyone who’s supported us up to now and in particular Elden Pixels who have helped us publish Cathedral on the Nintendo Switch. We want to continue making awesome games and all this support has allowed us to do so, so we hope all metroidvania fans get a chance to experience our take on the genre.”
With over 600 rooms to explore across its huge interconnected world map, Cathedral presents an 8-bit audiovisual feast that has been created with contemporary metroidvania game design principles. Cathedral’s expansive map is completely hand-crafted in meticulous pixel art detail, filled to the brim with all sorts of locations, secrets, puzzles, items and special challenges. Using the handy map feature is a must for gamers wanting to uncover every mystery this game holds. Prepare for a rollicking, noble adventure that will challenge and entertain for hours!
In Cathedral, players wake up in a world with no recollection of how they got there. Control a nameless knight from a different world, who teams up with a spirit known as Soul. Explore the world together to figure out who you are, how you got there, and most importantly, how to get back home. Unravel the secrets of the knight’s past by finding five legendary elemental orbs. The orbs, placed in ancient times by the demi-god known only as Ardur, are protected by five fearsome guardians. Make your way through their dungeons, meet them head-on in combat, and see if you can defeat and claim the treasure they are guarding! In classic metroidvania fashion, on your journey you’ll find a host of items that allow you to explore the world even further, reaching new areas, secrets and surprises!
Cathedral is out now on Nintendo Switch and Steam, priced at £12.59 / $14.99 / €13.99.
