The Nintendo Switch version of Northplay‘s colorful action adventure game Headland has a definitive release date. It will be released on January 13th.
In June 2021, Headland was initially confirmed for Nintendo Switch. It was supposed to happen last year, but Northplay missed the deadline by a hair.
A tremendous force has shattered Nor’s Headland’s Imagination Core, robbing him of his world’s color and inspiration. Now he must go inside his imagination’s beautiful dream to battle monsters and collect the dispersed bits of his creation.
As you explore Headland’s dreamlike world’s grassy meadows, deep caves, and dark castles, you’ll come across a slew of monsters who must be defeated with Nor’s trusty sword and quick reflexes in an adventure full of varied challenges to overcome on your way to unlocking the full power of Nor’s imagination.
You’ll want to acquire as many materials as possible while exploring to aid you in your goal. New weapons may be unlocked in arenas and then improved with the resources you’ve collected, allowing you to develop your own playstyle as part of a gratifying cycle of acquiring resources, upgrading, and equipping new tools to test out.
All of this is delivered in Headland’s bright and enchanting universe, which is brought to life by the game’s intriguing plot and a wonderful cast of new robot companions that you may meet along the way. Assist Nor and his robot pals in unraveling the secrets of the evil force in order to reassemble the Imagination Core and rescue Headland!
“We added a lot of additional material and features that set it apart from the mobile game and tailor it to the Switch demographic,” Northplay’s Michael Flarup adds. It’s “a wonderful match for the platform,” according to the developer, who “can’t wait to open the gates to the magnificent world we’ve made for Nintendo Switch gamers in this entertaining action adventure next week!”
