Downwell Game's Switch Launch Trailer Streamed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Nintendo began streaming a launch trailer on Thursday for the Nintendo Switch version of the Downwell video game. The game is available now digitally for US$2.99.
Nintendo describes the game:
Downwell is a curious game about a young person venturing down a well in search of untold treasures with only his Gunboots for protection. Make your way further and further down into the darkness filled with nasty creatures and mysterious secrets to collect the spectacular red gems scattered about the rocks. Step into precariously placed shops and buy some helpful items or level up between levels to battle well-dwelling monsters and uncover hidden caves filled with riches and relics. No two trips down the well are ever the same!
Ojiro "Moppin" Fujimoto, the creator of the original Downwell video game, revealed in January 2018 that he had joined Nintendo.
Fujimoto released Downwell for PC and iOS devices in 2015, and the game then launched for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Android devices in 2016. The platform shooting game centers on a man who encounters monsters and treasure as he explores the depths of a well in a local park. The dungeon itself is procedurally generated, providing a different level design with each playthrough.
