Freedom Planet Launches for Switch on August 30

XSEED Games has confirmed the release date for the Switch port of Freedom Planet.

The GalaxyTrail-developed platforming game will launch for the hybrid console on August 30th in North America and Europe, via the eShop. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game’s Switch launch.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Freedom Planet is a fast-paced, combat-driven platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces. There’s trouble around every turn, from insects and giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but players will have a variety of special fighting abilities at their disposal to blast through more than a dozen massive, non-linear stages.

Take back the world of Avalice and return peace to its three kingdoms for the first time on a handheld console! Play as one of three characters – Lilac, Carol or the unlockable Milla – each with their own unique gameplay style, and use their individual skills to forge a path through the gorgeous 2D pixel art and lush multi-scrolling backdrops that make up the stages in Freedom Planet.

Each character’s abilities add new ways to fell foes and traverse tumultuous terrain, employing the game’s momentum-based platforming and sprawling level designs to reward players with a seemingly bottomless barrage of secrets, alternate paths, hidden collectables, and speed run opportunities for faster clear times.

With a traditional ‘Adventure Mode’ featuring over an hour’s worth of fully voiced cutscenes to enhance the game’s dramatic storyline, and a ‘Classic Mode’ to get players straight into the action, the Nintendo Switch release of Freedom Planet offers the full, uncompromised experience at home or on the go. The game will be available in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese and Korean.


Freedom Planet has been available for Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.
