Unfortunately, no concrete release date has been given at this time. We did, however, get a new announcement trailer, which you can check out down below:
Originally released on PC back in March last year, Swords & Bones is clearly a nostalgia play for those of you who’re hankering for a 16-bit 2D action-adventure experience with some light RPG elements thrown in for good measure.
Boasting classic pixel-art, a multitude of pesky monsters and bosses, a bunch of magic spells, two potential endings, and a chirpy chiptune soundtrack, Swords & Bones is a throwback experience akin to Shovel Knight and The Messenger.
