Ragnarök Approaches in Nordic Action-Adventure Fimbul Today on Nintendo Switch!

MUNICH, COPENHAGEN, February 28th, 2019 – Fimbul, the Norse comic action-adventure from EuroVideo’s publishing label Wild River and Danish developer Zaxis Games, releases today on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows.

Though colder seasons begin to drift away in real life’s Northern Hemisphere, in the world of the aging berserker Kveldulver, the worst of winter is yet to come. The dreaded Fimbulwinter, a three-year period of deathly cold that serves as the harbinger of the frozen Norse apocalypse known as Ragnarök, is here.

After a raid on Kveldulver’s village leaves him mortally wounded, the Norns, female beings who rule the destiny of gods and men, pluck him from the afterlife. The berserker embarks on a divine quest to end the Fimbulwinter, defeat the giant Jotun, and claim bloody vengance.

As Ragnarök approaches, Kveldulver meets a motley crew of characters both friend and foe. While some join him on his journey, others have to be defeated in battle before their fate can be determined. Thanks to the Norns, the protagonist’s thread of life can be traced back anytime to change Kveldulver’s decisions and alter the course of his story.

Fimbul’s tale is told through a striking comicbook style punctuating intense battles against both man and beast. Combat is intuitive so anyone can pick it up and play, but nuanced systems allow for skilled players to become ever stronger. Exploring the world offers lore for story-hungry players as well as ways to improve the old warrior’s fighting prowess. Specific items and skills strengthen Kveldulver and improve his odds of surviving, especially against fearsome bosses.

Fimbul is available for digital download on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for $19.99.

Norse Action-Adventure Fimbul Rages onto Nintendo Switch Later This Year!

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – June 26, 2018: Danish developer Zaxis is excited to announce it’s partnered with Munich-based publisher EuroVideo to bring comic-action-adventure Fimbul to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.

Derived from the long, cruel winter preceding the Viking apocalypse – better known as Ragnarok by all those au fait with Norse mythology – Fimbul tells the tale of an aging berserker Kveldulver, who travels through the frozen Midgard taking on Trolls and Jotuns to reclaim an ancient artifact that might, just might prevent the end of the world.

It’s a game inspired by the Saxo Grammaticus – the Danish Book of Kings – and intertwines northern European legend with a comic book-style narrative, exploration elements and a weapons-based combat system.

The non-linear story is heavily influenced by the player’s actions. Thanks to an autosave feature called “The Thread of Life”, players will be able to come back to crucial moments in the story to explore alternative branches at any moment. Fimbul will reward exploring its world with lots of secret areas and encounters that will shine a new light on the background of different characters.

The combat system is designed to be easy to learn but difficult to master. Kveldulver will have to get to grips with a wide variety of weaponry, matching up his arsenal with an array of different enemies taking him on in a range of diverse environments.
On his journey, the berserker will also encounter other Vikings which can be recruited into his party. Players will have to use their Vikings’ individual skills and different items to survive against enemy warriors and dangerous creatures like hungry wolves, monsters, and the giant Jotun.

More about the world of Fimbul can be found on Steam. The game will be published under EuroVideo’s Wild River label.
