Mega Man homage Venture Kid launching soon as a Switch console exclusive


I see folks constantly pining for Mega Man-likes (a little less so now given that Capcom finally released the good Mega Man 11) and Venture Kid was absolutely built with the NES series in mind.

Featuring retro-centric platforming with more than a few direct homages (especially a Gemini-Man-esque stage aesthetic), Venture Kid is coming to Nintendo Switch as a “console exclusive” in the near future.

Venture Kid was actually released last year on Steam and mobile devices for $10 and $5 respectively. Note that this is the same publisher (FDG) that brought you Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, but this time the developmental duties fall to Snikkabo AS.
