32 bit final level. Possibly even higher. Calling it now.

If these excellent games keep being made, keep 'em comin'! My time machine is primed and "ready player 1"! And I love FamiTracker!!!!

Ricky D (2 days ago)
this is my type of game... absolutely brilliant looking game, not to mention gameplay!!!! please PLEASE bring this to both the PS4 and Vita (mostly and preferably the Vita as it would be a perfect fit)????!?!?!?
Chaoseater1510 (2 days ago)
I hope this comes to the PS4 or the Vita!
The evolution of the pixel count to show progress is an awesome mechanic it would be sweet if it ended on 32 but sprites that were the pinochle of these games like symphony of the night or mega man x4 or jump all the way to sf3 quality yea right on that last one

Switch?! Lol . Game looks great, but the console is not my cup of tea. At least it will have a pc release
Michael T (2 days ago)
zanychelly it's actually a perfect match imo; game will run optimally and you have multiple control and display options. But to each their own.
Mrgokujr2018 (2 days ago)
This is 8-bit? It looks like they're already playing 16-bit to me.
TripMX (5 hours ago)
Haha, I'd say it's advanced 8-bit and standard 16-bit graphics
Juanelio Garciano (2 days ago)
Looking forward to this one.
Scott Payne (2 days ago)
Seeing as how this game evolves from 8bit to 16bit as you play through it, I think it would be also pretty cool to see a game that slowly evolves through all of the major graphics upgrades over the decades. All the way to current gen.
Scott Payne (2 days ago)
Pretty cool looking game. Definitely getting this on Steam. Glad to see the Switch getting so many indie games too though.

Can we get a Ninja Gaiden HD Collection?

Release date?

that is a copy of ninja gaiden from nintendo
AnthonyLopez23456 (5 days ago)
Oh my God YES this is what I've been wanting. Indie pixel art NEVER looks like the nostalgic games they're referencing, they're always over simplistic, minimalost, it always feel people forgot what snes/genesis games actually looked like, but this does it! I love that!
Optimus Grime (5 days ago)
All this new tech and this is what their doing... ...wasteful.
Olivier Doriath (5 days ago)
Something about the graphics, resolution, and character to screen ratio feels weird...

The 16-bit segment they showed reminded me of Strider.
Jeff Kelly (5 days ago)
nothing we havent seen before......i dont get the hype
Steve T (2 days ago)
Yij Lai There is a need for these types of games. It's like a great NES game that's never been played or seen before until now. Maybe you're too young to understand how awesome games like this are. Its like how Shovel Knight was so good. It reminded me of Mega Man and other classics while bringing something new to the table.
Luke Stuard (5 days ago)
Yij Lai no, the gimmick is that it switches between 8 bit and 16 bit
Yij Lai (5 days ago)
Luke Stuard, Yeah it's trying to emulate better NES games and there's not a need for that. I'd rather have the classics digitally released rather than a copy of them.
Nathan Hicks (5 days ago)
Only on the switch and pc....It’s got to come to other things!

Retro style games are aesthetically still very appealing .
Mega (6 hours ago)
It depends. Many retro indie games have this simplistic pixel art style that doesn't belong to any past era of gaming. It can sometimes look cheap, inconsistent, too basic or uninspired. Games that adhere to actual NES aesthetics to a fairly large degree are quite uncommon. Not many games around pulling off the look of NES Ninja Gaiden or the Sunsoft and Natsume games. I wish more did.
Harrazotamegane (5 days ago)
Yeah..one of the example is Celeste
JAZZPUNK (5 days ago)

Still waiting 4 mk11 on switch
Luke Stuard (5 days ago)
The Real Lie the devs reasoning for not bringing it to the switch (yet) is completely different hardware to what they're used to, not because the switch is too weak
Luke Stuard (5 days ago)
The Real Truth yeah it (probably) can, the devs even said that they want injustice 2 on the switch, there is nothing that says switch can't handle injustice 2, maybe a couple small graphical downgrades tho
The Real Truth (5 days ago)
That's never going to happen, the switch is too damm weak.... couldn't even handle injustice 2.
