After making its mark previously on the 3DS eShop, Witch & Hero has now been revamped and launched globally on Nintendo Switch eShop! Of course not everyone will have come across this game on 3DS, and may be wondering what to expect in exchange for $4.99USD / €4,99. So, let’s explain…
Witch & Hero is an 8-bit style action game that can be played by, well, anyone!
You play as a Hero accompanied by a Witch and you are seeking revenge, and justice, over the evil Medusa. Medusa turned the witch into stone, so she is no longer able to move; it’s up to the Hero to defeat the monsters, though he can get a little help…
The Hero leads the fight but can revive the Witch to unleash her destructive powers; as the waves of enemies become stronger they will need to work together! The Hero attacks using ‘bump’ mechanics, and as they kill enemies they also take small amounts of damage. When the Hero falls you have to revive them as quickly as possible so you can carry on the fight! This means there is an element of strategy, as you try to take out enemies closest to the Witch and allow time to recover from knockdowns.
By collecting the blood of vanquished foes you can bring the Witch back to life for a short time. She can’t move but can unleash powerful attacks that engulf the arena; it’s very important to use this skill!
As for Nintendo Switch enhancements, in this version you have the option of co-operative play to take on the challenge with a friend. Witch & Hero also has enhanced visuals and audio, while retaining its original 8-bit pixel graphics and sound vibes.
We hope you will enjoy the challenge!
