    Looks as bland as... something so bland that I forgot what it was.

    I remember playing this game before at a friends house. It's pretty nice and I'm excited to see this game be on Switch!

    Never heard of this game series before but the graphics style it uses seems pretty cool.

    Agreed, I much prefer the overly simplistic 8-bit design of 1 over 2, especially so with the character models in 2 being so ugly.

    I'm a bit indifferent to the 8-bit style, mainly because I'm not much of a guy for simplistic, one colored, sprites. The new one is a bit ugly, but I think that the sprite quality makes up for it

    I read it 'Ni Dog'. I care not for correctness.

    I think ugly is an understatement. I may still get this game, depending on the pice as this is a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch.

    Really?

    I've never seen this game before and it looks so unique compared to many games coming out these days.

    Wonder if layered fs'ing this would result in different results than undertale, since the injection of nidhogg II doesn't work in undertale

    :rolleyes: another f'ing port...

    I miss the days when Nintendo was the "other" platform with 90% of stuff unique (very much not 1:1 ports)...
