Bonus Level Entertainment has announced that 16-bit style action platformer Fox n Forests is heading to Nintendo Switch this May.

The puzzle and fable game, inspired by timeless classics like Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and Wonder Boy, will take you on an adventure through a mystic forest where you’ll use a magic melee crossbow that can be used for both ranged and close-up combat. What sets Fox n Forests apart from other titles is the given ability to switch between two seasons every level, which allows you to completely change the entire environment, revealing secrets and tricky skill tests that push your exploration forward.

From the official site:

“FOX n FORESTS will feature pixel perfect platforming, screen filling bosses, rich bonus levels, powerful potions, bags of loot, stuffed shops, clever backtracking, challenging skill tests, a magic melee crossbow to shoot and slash enemies, upgradeable shots, not 4 but 5 seasons to explore, stunning 16-Bit pixel art, a catchy chip tunes soundtrack and tons of humorous retro charm!”
