Wulverblade, a vibrant 2D brawler by indie studio Darkwind Media is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
Inspired by such classic side-scroller brawlers like Golden Axe, Sengoku, and Knights of the Round, Wulverblade reinvigorates the 2D brawler thanks to its fusion of addicting beat ‘em up gameplay, stunningly beautiful 2D art, and an intriguing story inspired by the pages of history.
In Wulverblade, you play as either Caradoc, Brennus or Guinevere – members of a family originating in the northern tribe of the Caledonii – as you strive to push back the invading 9th legion of the mighty Roman Empire as they try to conquer the entirely of Britannia – your homeland.
The game boasts a rich, historically inspired story lavished with over-the-top action, cultural touchstones from the era, and plenty of murderous gameplay instances. Players will venture forth to eight gloriously detailed levels set around northern Britannia as they quest to push back the Roman menace, all the while listening to a soundtrack created by sound designers who worked on The Dark Knight Rises and Wrath of the Titans.
Wulverblade is available of the Nintendo Switch eShop for £14.99 and $19.99.
