Severed Feature


Toronto, Canada – October 13, 2016 – Drinkbox Studios has launched its touch-enabled hack ‘n slash adventure, Severed, on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS™ in North America today. Severed puts players in the role of Sasha, a one-armed warrior who has embarked on a danger-ridden quest to find her family. Players will hack, slash, and swipe their way through both nightmarish monsters and uniquely challenging puzzles.

The Nintendo 3DS version of Severed features Nintendo 3DS dual-screen options (including 3D gameplay support), in-game achievements, and cross-buy with the Wii U version. The game is also launching at a special launch discount price until October 20.

In Severed, players use swipe-based touch controls to solve puzzles, find secrets and battle with a host of disturbing monsters, including giant floating skull wizards and beasts made of crows. During the journey, players unlock new abilities, ascend an RPG-style upgrade tree, and uncover the mysteries of the dark fantasy universe Sasha finds herself in.
