(Update) The lovely Iconoclasts makes its Nintendo Switch debut next week


Presumably worldwide? Please?

[Update: Bifrost Entertainment has confirmed to Destructoid that the release will be worldwide on August 2.]

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu features the grand news that Joakim Sandberg's platform adventure Iconoclasts will be arriving on Nintendo Switch August 2, that's next week!

Launching at the start of the year on PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One, Iconoclasts tells the dramatic tale of a young mechanic, Robin, who strives to help others within a brutal, totalitarian state. The game fast won over fans with its great visuals and design, exploratory Metroidvania action and its blend of comedy and pathos.

Being a Japanese publication, Famitsu's date would seemingly only pertain to a release in that territory. Hopefully, the August 2 date refers to a global release, so Switch owners worldwide will be able partake in the action when Iconoclasts launches on the Nintendo eShop.
