Bookbound Brigade launches digitally on 30 January for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC, retailing at $19.99 USD / €19.99 EU / £17.99 UK / $30.00 AUD.

Dracula, Queen Victoria, and Nikola Tesla join other literary legends in Bookbound Brigade, which puts a new spin on the Metroidvania genre. Since there is no single hero here you play as a party of 8 working together to navigate the environments and choose the right brigade formation. Meet over 50 distinctively hand-drawn NPCs, drawing from generations of famous historical and literary characters.

About The Game: (from press release)

It will take the likes of Dracula, King Arthur, Queen Victoria, Nikola Tesla, Cassandra, Dorothy Gale, Sun Wukong the Monkey King and Robin Hood to assemble and avenge a world plunged into chaos following the theft of the ‘Book of Books’, a volume encompassing every single work of fiction and non-fiction ever written.

BOOK A DATE WITH THE BOOKBOUND BRIGADE!

Ltd has announced that Bookbound Brigade, a new spin on the established Metroidvania genre from Italian developer Digital Tales, will be released digitally on 30 January 2020, for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Scripted by British comedy writer Dean Wilkinson (Little Big Planet), Bookbound Brigade is about beating the hell out of historical and literary characters you studied in school by leading a dream team of real and fictional heroes through a 2D side-scrolling platform-adventure.

Get ready for a unique take on the Metroidvania-style platform-adventure game, with 2D side-scrolling graphics: explore, fight, backtrack, grow your skills and tackle challenging quests and puzzles across 5 varied worlds – from the Tower of Babel to Victorian London, passing by the lost city of R’lyeh, home to ancient god Cthulhu.

There is no single hero in Bookbound Brigade: you play as a party of 8 unique characters, each with their own traits and skills affecting behaviour, so work together in Formation! To successfully navigate the environments, you will need to choose the right Brigade formation: standard, line, column or wheel. Meet over 50 distinctively hand-drawn NPCs, drawing from generations of famous historical and literary characters.

Supported languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

Bookbound Brigade launches digitally on 30 January for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC, retailing at $19.99 USD / €19.99 EU / £17.99 UK / $30.00 AUD.
