It’s been over three years since the the side-scrolling action platformer AeternoBlade hit the 3DS eShop — to mixed reviews. With a PS1 era charm, the title found an audience with nostalgic fans from around the world, and a sequel was quickly announced. Originally set for release on the 3DS in late 2015, it was later announced that AeternoBlade II would also be released on home consoles using Unreal Engine 4, with a separate build of the game coming to 3DS and Vita. News on the title slowed down, and the occasional piece of concept art and animation was posted to the game’s Facebook page.

Now, the team behind the title has announced that the 3DS version of the game has been scrapped with a Switch version coming in its wake. Unfortunately, due to the resignation of AeternoBlade’s art staff, the development team seems to be a bit short on funds, as it’s announced it will be seeking financial aid via an upcoming Indiegogo campaign.


No additional information has been released at this time, but stay tuned to Nintendo Wire for more details as they become available.
