The very well received 8-bit adventure game Alwa’s Awakening is landing on Switch this summer. After making a splash on PC it’s finally making its’ first ever console debut. It’ll run deliciously in 60 fps and will include HD Rumble and an all-new optional Assist Mode, which enables you to play the game in any way you want.
Alwa’s Awakening is a game that tries to stay as close as possible to the authentic 8-bit look with sweet pixel art, a soundtrack filled with catchy chiptunes and so much charm it’ll bring you right back to the NES era. With easy to understand controls the game is easy to learn but tough to master, just like how games were in the old days!

From indie company Elden Pixels, which consists of former Image & Form and Zoink Games employees comes a game that’s very true to the feel, look and design of actual NES games. With inspirations that range from old classics like Battle of Olympus to newer games like Trine 2, Alwa’s Awakening is bound to make an impact when it launches this summer.
“Ever since the Switch console was first announced people have been asking us for a port and now we’re finally able to say – Yes, Alwa’s Awakening is coming to Switch!” says lead designer Mikael Forslind. He continues, “When we made Alwa’s Awakening we stayed true to the old NES limitations as much as we could. So much that we actually released the soundtrack on an actual cartridge.”
Alwa’s Awakening will launch on Nintendo Switch this summer with a price of $9.99 / €9,99 or the equivalent.
