Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer 1P2P have released co-op brawler-RPG hybrid Young Souls on Google Stadia today, and they have also announced in a “Boss Trailer” that the game will come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in fall. The game is about twin orphans Jenn and Tristan traveling through a portal in a missing scientist’s hidden cellar and arriving in a parallel world of goblins. The game promises a rich narrative with “unexpected story paths” to unlock over the course of four explorable biomes and while battling more than 20 bosses. 1P2P has expressed that the boss fights were designed to be the highlight of the game.
Young Souls features hundreds of different weapons, armors, and accessories to equip strategically, and you can do all the fighting on your own or in two-player co-op. And notably, you aren’t trapped in the goblin world. You can return to your world to go shopping at Solid Sneakers or work out at the Happy Fit gym to improve your stats. It sounds like a pretty solid gameplay loop, and the Young Souls Boss Trailer makes the game look like a pretty good time for Switch.
If the sidescrolling brawling combat can hold up its end of the bargain, then Young Souls will surely be something to watch when it comes to Nintendo Switch this fall.
