Cute adventure Freedom Planet hitting Switch this month


Freedom doesn't come for free

XSEED Games' has announced that their platforming adventure Freedom Planet will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch in just a couple of weeks, with the port expected to hit the Nintendo eShop on August 30.

Freedom Planet, originally designed as a fan-made Sonic the Hedgehog title, features a trio of anthropomorphic cutie-pies on a fast-paced quest to save their homeland from the evil Lord Bevon. Players can select a hero from Lilac the Dragon, Carol the Wildcat and Milla the Basset Hound.

Still showing its Sonic fangame roots, Freedom Planet is retro-enthused platformer that ticks along a fair old pace. Originally launching on the PC and Wii U in 2014, Freedom Planet has found a new community of fans through speedrun events and last year's PS4 port.

Freedom Planet launches on Nintendo Switch on August 30.
