The Skellboy Nintendo Switch release date has been announced via today's Indie World Showcase. This upcoming game from developer Fabraz beautifully merges 2D art and 3D gameplay into an interesting action role-playing game experience!

In Skellboy, you've been dead for a while. Like, a really long while, so much so that you're just a bunch of bones. The King's evil court magician has summoned up a bunch of evil spirits to take over, but he's also accidentally awakened you in the process! It's up to you to make the best of your second chance and save the kingdom from his dark magic. You'll be able to get this for Nintendo's hybrid handheld console pretty soon — the Skellboy Nintendo Switch release date is December 3, 2019.

While it kind of sucks to be dead, there are some advantages to the whole situation. If you happen across an enemy with a powerful ability, you can just rip off your own arm and replace it with theirs. More than a hundred different body parts will be available in what I now consider one of the most metal games of all time. Players will be able to use five different weapon types to bonk characters on the head while they engage in intense battles and explore the vibrant world before them.

Skellboy launches on the Nintendo Switch on December 3, 2019. No price has been announced just yet. It's also coming to PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam; no price or firm release date for those platforms has been announced. For now, you can add Skellboy to your wishlist on Steam and check out the game's official website.
