Developer Bit Kid has announced WOLFHOUND, a science-fiction World War II Metroidvania game Switch. You can see the debut trailer for this title above, and a healthy dose of gameplay below.

When a clandestine Nazi base is discovered in the otherworldly heart of the Bermuda Triangle, there’s only one soldier for the job…

Capt. Chuck “WOLFHOUND” Rossetti, a wise-cracking, one-man army who never leaves a pal behind, is no stranger to war but his war is about to get stranger. After an Allied vessel vanishes, Chuck is deployed to infiltrate an uncharted island, discover the enemy’s secrets, and bring our boys home.

Yet this evil, shrouded island has other plans. Pitted against the stuff of nightmares—mutant insects, zombies, and other twisted creations of a mad Axis scientist—Chuck finds himself on an eerie, perilous mission unlike any he’s faced before.

Venture forth into the island, scavenging for weapons and ammo to dispatch the Axis soldiers and monsters that grow more grotesque and dangerous the further WOLFHOUND goes. Unveil the sinister experiments of Dr. Steiner, and turn his tech against him. Feel the unbridled power of the railgun. Reach new heights with the jetpack. Lace up gravity boots to traverse new areas, where castles pierce the sky and crystal caverns veil wicked, fascinating mysteries. . .

After more than 200,000 recruits ventured into the procedurally-generated depths of Chasm, Bit Kid sought to return to the Metroidvania genre, while eschewing procedural generation in favor of a single, intricately-designed world. Bit Kid brought together artistic talent behind the Shantae series, Freedom Planet 2, and Sparklite along with a heroic chiptune soundtrack courtesy of musician RushJet1 (Cave Story+, Alwa’s Legacy, PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator).
