Riverbond will land on Switch and get a new world later in 2019

Riverbond is headed to the Nintendo Switch later this year, bringing with it a new world that will be available on other platforms too.

Riverbond from Cococucumber released in June this year, across PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Now, it’s also been announced for the Nintendo Switch so you can crawl those dungeons while on the go. While no release date has been announced for the Switch version, we do know that it will be available sometime later in 2019.

The Switch release will come with a new world that will also be made available to PC, PS4, and Xbox One players as DLC.

Have a look at the Switch version announcement trailer:

Riverbond is an action game in which you can team up with up to 3 other fellow adventures to shoot and slash through enemies populating the game’s many worlds. The game’s environments are made of voxels, making them particularly destructible.

Here’s how the devs describe the game:

Face the evil threatening the land by choosing melee or ranged weapons for fast-paced combat to suit any play style. The quick arcade-like pace and responsive controls give the party a leg up on waves of mobs and exciting boss fights. With the retro spirit of classic hack-and-slash cooperative games, Riverbond marries the nostalgic genre with modern flair.
An enchanting score by acclaimed composer Ryan Roth (Void Bastards,
The Beginner’s Guide, Starseed Pilgrim) adorns the adventure across glistening, snowy peaks and wondrous valleys. Don a variety of charming crossover skins like The Kid from Bastion, Shovel Knight, Raz from Psychonauts, Juan from Guacamelee!, and Bullet Kinfrom Enter the Gungeon.
