Developer Edmund McMillen and publisher Nicalis have announced that The Legend of Bum-bo is coming to Switch on June 29th, 2022. The game takes up 1.5 GB and is priced at $20.

The Legend of Bum-bo is a puzzle-based “deckbuilding roguelike.” Players collect hoards of items that can be modified, upgraded and combined with others in many interesting ways. Play as one of many Bum-bo, each with its own unique abilities, as they smash, bash and splash their way through a variety of cardboard monstrosities, giant bosses and dark personal urges…

When Bum-bo’s only coin is stolen by a mysterious entity and pulled down into the sewer, Bum-bo finds himself facing droves of deranged enemies, lost children, his fears and eventually the beast that stole his beloved coin.

We normally see physical releases when Nicalis is the publisher, but it doesn’t seem like that’s the case this time. If anything changes on that front, we’ll make sure to update this post.

I see Nicalis have called this "the prequel to The Binding of Isaac". Also, there is a physical version planned for release next year.
