Skul: The Hero Slayer Generating Console Ports This Summer

Skul: The Hero Slayer's roguelike action will be on more platforms in just a few short months.

Announced during Nintendo's Indie World Showcase on April 14, Skul: The Hero Slayer from developer SouthPAWGames will release on Nintendo Switch in summer 2021, officially making it available on all major platforms. A press release following the reveal included the PS4 and Xbox One ports in the same launch window as well. 

Skul: The Hero Slayer has already gained quite the following on Steam, and the development team is excited to bring the game to other platforms, letting more players experience the action-packed 2-D platformer.

You can watch the announcement trailer for the Switch version below: 

Skul: The Hero Slayer originally released on PC early this year. We reviewed it on release and praised it for the challenge it presents both newcomers and seasoned rogeulike players alike — all while remaining "endearing." We said that "Skul takes the rogue-lite mechanics you know and adds some flair of its own, and a unique take on the fantasy narrative." You can check out the full review here.

We already knew that PS4, Xbox One, and Switch ports were in the works, but this is the first confirmation of a smaller release window outside of the larger 2021 provided around the game's PC launch.
