Frankenstein-y Zelda-like ARPG Skellboy delayed to January 2020

New Zelda-like title Skellboy revealed, coming to Nintendo Switch

Skellboy, an upcoming ARPG starring a very customizable skeleton hero, has been delayed from December 3 to an undisclosed release date this coming January. With that initial release date only six days away, this comes as a bit of a surprise, but luckily, the delay is not too far off. For more information on the delay (and the game itself!), check out the press release below.

Due to unforeseen complications, we had to delay the release of Skellboy from December 3rd to January, a month later than planned. We tried our best to avoid this and truly apologize for the sudden delay. The game turned out beautiful, however, and we can’t wait to share it with you soon! We have a couple of other exciting surprises lined up as well that we’ll be announcing alongside the new January release date later down the line. Thank you for your understanding!

Life was peaceful in the Cubold Kingdom until the king’s evil court magician got dumped by the princess. With his heart broken and his rage fueled, he called upon the evil spirits to resurrect the dead and the kingdom’s long forgotten monstrosities. What he doesn’t realize in his fury is that he accidentally summoned an ancient hero as well… Skippy! Travel across the beautifully rendered kingdom of Cubold and take full advantage of your resurrected, skeletal body!

Swap out body parts to acquire new abilities during your adventure or pick up a new weapon to vanquish the evil magician’s lackeys. Onwards, Skippy, it’s time to be a hero once more! 


A true action-rpg experience that will test your skill and reward exploration!

An expansive singleplayer experience across the interconnected world of Cubold!

The unique ability to swap out body parts to acquire special abilities!

Several weapon types to clobber any foes you face!

Special enemies and bosses that will truly test your mettle!

A beautifully vibrant world alongside some rocking chiptune tracks!

This beautifully crafted title by Umaiki Games is a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch and Fabraz is proud to represent it! Experience a wonderfully exciting journey and save the princess from the evil wizard Squaruman!

Developed by Umaiki Games and published by acclaimed Slime-san developer Fabraz, Skellboy will try to steal our hearts (hopefully not literally) just a few weeks later than originally planned. In due time, we’ll know what this extra month means for the title’s quality and success.
