The incredibly brutal old-school style 2D side-scrolling adventure Slain: Back From Hell rocks its way onto the Nintendo Switch next week.

All hail the great horned metal god! Publisher Digerati Distribution and indie developers Andrew Gilmour and Thomas Jenns are thrilled to announce Slain: Back From Hell for Nintendo Switch™. The brutal, forged-from-heavy-metal hack-and-slash adventure will launch 7 December, 2017.

You control the fate of Bathoryn, a doomed hero in a Gothic world, who seeks to liberate six cursed realms from six deadly overlords. He must battle his way through this blighted land, packed with gruesome and lethal creatures, before ascending (or sometimes descending) into a stronghold, all the while defeating fiendish traps and vile monsters alike.

Accompanying the heavy metal visuals is an even heavier metal soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant (formerly of Celtic Frost).

Slain: Back From Hell launches on the Nintendo Switch on December 7th 2017. It’s also available right now on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux and Playstation Vita.
