Developer Ska Studios have announced that their 2016 action RPG Salt and Sanctuary has now been released for Nintendo Switch. The game has proved to be incredibly popular on Steam, having been downloaded 800,000 times.

Salt and Sanctuary’s story follows the story of “the Saltborn,” a lone survivor of a shipwreck. The player has to journey across an uncharted island, facing undead monsters. The game features twenty different boss fights, aiming to combine “fast and brutal 2D combat with richly developed RPG mechanics.”

The player character is also customizable, including physical appearance and weapon choice. Additionally, the title also features a co-op mode.

Ska Studios consists of husband and wife team Michelle and James Silva. (And their cats Neko and Gato.) “Together, we’ve crafted a dark world that both tests and rewards those daring enough to enter. Welcome, Switch adventurers, to our ghoulish island, where mystery and death loom.” – Michelle and James Silva

The Switch version of Salt and Sanctuary is available now from the Nintendo eShop. More information can be found on the Ska Studios website.
