In Mable and the Wood, you will hunt down massive beasts and, upon destroying them, shapeshift into their forms in order to use their powers to save or destroy the world. If you have less violent intent, you can find secret paths to complete Mable without killing anything, including bosses. Unlike most Metroidvania-style games, Mable does not allow you to run, jump, and kill on your own. Instead, you must use non-human forms to attack creatures and traverse through difficult challenges.
Mable and the Wood will launch on Nintendo Switch this summer. In the meantime, check out the trailer and details listed below.
Key Features Include
Free Reign – Players are free to make decisions on how they play and who they slay.
Combat is Movement – Mable isn’t strong enough to lift her magical sword, so she must use it in unique ways to help move through the world. Players can use non-human forms to harm enemies for a limited time, but vanquishing creatures extends her power.
Hunt Great Beasts and Take Their Shape – Defeat the great beasts to take their abilities and transform into a giant mole, medusa, spider and more.
Explore a Dying World – A large and varied fantasy world, brought to life with state-of-the-art pixel technology and a beautiful original soundtrack.
Multiple Endings – Mable features different routes to take through the world and secrets to discover that provide players with multiple endings.
“Mable is a game where players have free reign to make decisions on how they want to play the game,” said Andrew Stewart, Founder of Triplevision Games. “They can choose to kill everything, or they can play the entire game without killing anything, including bosses. Depending on the decisions made, players will encounter one of the multiple endings.”
