Today Ska Studios announced that its brutal Souls-like platformer Salt and Sanctuary is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and it’s doing so soon.

The game will release on Nintendo’s hybrid console on August 2nd, which means just a week from now.

The package will include twenty horrifying bosses, multiple endings, New Game+, and special modes like permadeath, no blocking, and no rolling.

The game’s co-creators Michelle and James Silva accompanied the announcement with a statement:

“The two of us wanted to create a Soulslike game that we wanted to play, and finding that so many others who wanted it too warmed our dark little hearts. Bringing Salt and Sanctuary to the Nintendo Switch means more people who like dismal, satisfying games can play our very dismal, satisfying game.”

Salt and Sanctuary will be available on the Nintendo eShop for $17.99, but there is more: the physical Salt and Sanctuary: Drowned Tome Edition will be coming later in the Holidays, with details to be delivered down the line.

The possibility of a Switch port was mentioned quite a while ago, and at long last, it’s happening.

Below you can check out a few screenshots and a trailer. The game is already available for PS4, PC, and PS Vita.
