The Company Man release date set for this month, eShop demo out now

The Company Man reveal trailer Nintendo Switch release date January 21 early 2022 Leoful Forust action platformer overthrow boss

Last month, publisher Leoful and developer Forust announced office adventure The Company Man for Nintendo Switch, a wild platformer where you brandish your keyboard as a weapon as you battle your way through an exotic and unruly workplace. Today, Leoful came back to announce that The Company Man launches on Switch with a digital release date of January 21, 2022, and it launches physically in Asia on January 26. The Company Man is available to preorder now for 10% off, and you can also download a free demo on the Switch eShop to give it a try.

The game is playable in English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, French, Italian, German, and Spanish, but with a platformer like this, language probably wouldn’t be too much of a barrier regardless. That being said, the game is curiously inspired by the American version of TV comedy The Office, and the main character is named Jim. He is on a quest to overthrow his boss and take over, which for some reason involves ice and maybe acid levels.

If you missed it the first time around, here’s the trailer for The Company Man again to commemorate the January 2022 Switch release date. It’s not your typical office setting.
