Battle Axe for Nintendo Switch & PlayStation 4
Inspired by the classic adventure games of the 80s & 90s, Battle Axe is an arcade top-down hack & slash created by veteran pixel artist Henk Nieborg.
It features high-quality visuals, true to form game mechanics, and music from the legendary VGM composer Manami Matsumae – retro gamers rejoice!
For as long as you and your people can remember, your homeland of Mercia has been held in the tyrannical grip of “Etheldred”; a despotic sorceress who resides in a seemingly impenetrable tower in the distant icy wastelands to the north. Every seven years she sends her armies south to handpick inhabitants from each township who will be subjected to a life of slavery, and they are never heard from again.
Info for European gamers/collectors
The game will get a standard retail release in Europe thanks to Numskull Games.
Numskull Games has partnered with Limited Run Games for distribution and marketing for the North American market.
