Retro-styled adventure Cathedral is coming to Switch in 2020


Not to be confused with the '90s doom-metal band

Elden Pixels' retro-styled adventure Cathedral is headed to the Nintendo Switch later this year, following on from its previous release on PC in the fall of 2019.

Described as "a homage to the games of the past," Cathedral uses classic 8-and-16-bit palettes and sound chips to create a charming medieval adventure wrapped up in a nostalgic '80s gaming aesthetic. Players take charge of a nameless knight who finds themselves lost in a strange new world where threat and danger haunt every nook and cranny of over 600 rooms.

Players join our hero on their epic journey through the mysterious kingdom, learning new skills, gathering powerful weaponry, bartering with townsfolk, and slaying an array of monsters and demi-gods on a quest to obtain the five elemental orbs that will unlock the secrets to the protagonist's past and, hopefully, open a path back home.

Cathedral will launch on Nintendo Switch later in 2020. It is available now on PC via Steam.
