    XSEED Games is bringing the hit Sonic-inspired 2D platformer Freedom Planet to the Nintendo Switch, as announced back at E3. A release date has now been given, and the game will be hitting Switch consoles on August 30, where it will cost $14.99 as an eShop-only digital title. Freedom Planet originally launched on the Nintendo Wii U three years ago, in 2015.

    With the character designs you can really tell they were inspired by Sonic, in particular, the older games.

    I had s chuckle with the rabbit girl using her arms and ears to try and fly.

    I think I'll check this one out. It looks like alot of fun!

    I've never tried it before, but I heard it's like Sonic and the soundtrack is actually composed by one of my favorite artists, gonna try it out.

    and people still says that the switch is not just ports.

    anyway, I bought this game twice (wii u and then on a steam sale) but still haven't played it, the demo was pretty good though.

    Anyway, I don't know if I am glad or sad to see this game on the Switch, I mean, I have it on Steam.
