Historical-themed beat ’em up game Wulverblade is finally making the move to other consoles next week. The game, which has previously been Nintendo Switch exclusive, will be getting premium treatment in the port, sporting frame-rate improvements and new online features to spice up the game.
Announced via press release, Wulverblade will be heading to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 31, 2018 — exactly a week from now. Adding onto the news, the indie game will also sport 60 FPS gameplay and online leaderboards for the three new versions. It isn’t immediately clear whether either of these features will be updated in for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, but we have reached out to a Darkwind Media representative for a statement.
But what is Wulverblade? Mentioned above, the game is a historically-based beat ’em up game following the plight of the barbaric Britons as they try to fight back against the Roman Empire. Besides the distinctive and gritty artwork, the game sports eight different levels, local co-operative gameplay, and gory combat. While Wulverblade has been in development for roughly six years, it only just released as a Nintendo Switch exclusive title in October 2017 — despite the fact that it was originally announced for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Wulverblade is currently available for Nintendo Switch, however PC, PS4, and Xbox One owners can pick up the game on January 31, 2018 with the added features. In the meantime, check out the “All Systems Trailer” below showing off gameplay:
