In the time since launch, Salt and Sanctuary has sold over 800,000 copies. Now, the incredibly successful game is headed to Switch.

Salt and Sanctuary was developed by Ska Studios, whose founders Michelle and James Silva said;

The two of us wanted to create a Soulslike game that we wanted to play, and finding that so many others who wanted it too warmed our dark little hearts.

Bringing Salt and Sanctuary to the Nintendo Switch means more people who like dismal, satisfying games can play our very dismal, satisfying game.

In the game, players can choose from a range of classes, weapons and strategies. However you choose to play, you’ll need to be mindful of everything.

Choose your weapons carefully and level up your character through an enormous skill-tree.

Salt and Sanctuary includes 2o bosses, multiple endings, New Game + and a range of special modes to extend the life and replayability of the game.

Salt and Sanctuary is coming to Switch on August 2 via the eShop. 

It will cost $17.99 USD (local pricing TBC).
