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.

Nordic Action-Adventure RPG Fimbul Releases Feb 28th on Nintendo Switch!

MUNICH, COPENHAGEN – January 17 2019 – Fimbul, the Norse comic action-adventure from EuroVideo’s publishing label Wild River and Danish developer Zaxis Games, initiates an icy apocalypse on Feb. 28. The epic tale will be available both digitally and physically for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC, as well as digitally for Xbox One.

Fimbulwinter, the prelude to the end of the world known as Ragnarök, has begun. Elder berserker Kveldulver found death when bandits raided his village, killing him in the process. But the Norns, goddesses of fate and destiny, have other plans for Kveldulver. The goddesses resurrect Kveldulver before sending him on a bloody quest to eradicate the Jotun giants and avert the apocalypse.

Told in a gripping comicbook style, Kveldulver’s story will depend on player decisions, with numerous narrative branches to uncover. As the Norns are the goddesses who spin the threads of fate, they have imbued Kveldulver with the power to go back to pivotal moments in his journey and explore different outcomes.

Throughout his legendary adventure, Kveldulver will meet a large cast of characters, some friend, some foe. Of these enemies, select few must be defeated in battle before Kveldulver can decide their fate.

Kveldulver will also find both stories detailing the world around him and ways to improve his fighting skill. Certain items, weapons and talents enhance the old warrior’s abilities. He’ll need them all to overcome deadly warriors, horrific monsters, and gigantic Jotun alike. Combat is simple to learn, but as players explore the ways of the battlefield, they’ll discover nuances that will prove essential during awe-inspiring boss battles.

Gelly Break – Switch Gameplay Footage!

Frenetic Color-Swapping Platformer Gelly Break Bounces Nov 29th onto Nintendo Switch!

Munich, Germany – 11.8.2018 – Gelly Break, the colorful co-op Jump’n’Run from EuroVideo’s publishing label Wild River and Berlin-based developer ByteRockers‘ Games releases on Nov. 29 2018, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

The release trailer can be found on Wild River’s official YouTube channel.

Gelly Break places equal emphasis on coordination and cooperation as platformer action. Each player controls an orange or green Gelly and can only interact with platforms of the same color. Gellies also can’t fight off the enemies Evil Blob throws at them alone. To avoid becoming toast, Gellies help each other while coordinating movement and attacks, all while quickly change roles on the fly.

Clear communication, impeccable timing and flawless cooperation are keys to successfully completing levels. Each vibrant stage is filled with exciting challenges and hidden rewards. After completing a level, players are free to choose between amping up the difficulty or taking it down a notch with a simpler stage. Gelly Break offers near endless possibilities, vastly enhancing replayability.

Gelly Break is fun for players of all ages and in all situations – be it holiday time at home with the family or an evening party with friends. Feeling courageous? Try tackling Gelly Break in single player mode, controlling both Gellies at the same time, especially when fighting a Mini-boss.

Gelly Break will be available for Nintendo Switch for $34.99 and available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Dutch November 29, 2018.

Colorful Co-Op Nintendo Switch Platformer Gelly Break Releases New Trailer!

ByteRockers’ Games and publisher Wild River are pleased to release a new trailer for Gelly Break, their colorful co-op platformer for Nintendo Switch.

Evil Blob plans to take over the planet Gelly, and it’s up to two cute little Gellies – one orange, and one green – to stop him. Couch co-op means that players can master the levels and fight against crowds of enemies together. Solo players take control of both Gellies at any time as one unit.

Colored obstacles give Gellies trouble on their way to Evil Blob. Only Gellies of the same color can interact with these objects and platforms. Gellies can also fuse to access additional abilities, or ride piggyback on one another so they can circumvent colored objects they don’t match with. Tricky passages and enormous bosses require clever teamwork, but adaptable difficulty means people of all ages can enjoy Gelly Break.

“Gelly Break aims to bring friends and family closer again, so they can play together instead of alone,” says Maik Reichelt from ByteRockers’. But don’t worry: Gelly Break is a fun platforming experience for all ages, whether playing alone or with friends.
