SouthPAW Games and Neowiz have announced that their action roguelite, Skul: The Hero Slayer, will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on Thursday, October 21st. The game first released on PC, where it garnered positive reviews.

Skul: The Hero Slayer features 90 playable characters. Skul is a “lone skeleton” left in The Demon King’s Castle, which has been attacked by humans alongside “The Imperial Army.” The attackers want to wipe out all demons once and for all.

Features include:

  • Side-Scrolling Platformer Action – Skul: The Hero Slayer is an action-platformer that boasts rogue-like features such as everchanging and challenging maps. It will keep you on your toes, as you will never know what to expect.
  • Tons of Skulls, Tons of Playable Characters – Skul is no ordinary skeleton. In addition to his formidable fighting skills, he can gain new and exciting abilities depending on which skull he’s wearing. Use up to two skulls at a time, each of which has its own unique attack range, speed and power. Choose combos that match your playing style and switch them in the heat of battle to bring your enemies to their knees. The power is in your hands!
  • The Adventurers – Skul has crossed paths with a party of Adventurers! They are powerful foes that hunt Demons for sport. While Skul may be small, he still packs quite a punch. So just wait and see who really is the hunter and who is the hunted….
  • Bosses Corrupted by Dark Quartz – At the end of every chapter, go head-to-head with massive bosses corrupted with Dark Quartz and powerful beyond belief. Derived from the pain and hate of life itself, Dark Quartz taints and takes control of everything it touches.
