Sabotage Studios' The Messenger slices and dices on Switch this Summer


8-bit inspired platform fun

Sabotage Studios' The Messenger, which was previously announced for PC, will also be seeing release on Nintendo Switch.

You can check out the trailer below. The Messenger is expected to land on Switch this Summer.
