Witch and Hero 2 is an action game that controls both little witch and little hero at the same time.

The little hero is physically strong and stands up forever no matter how many times he's beaten. The little witch is weak physically so when the game is over when she's down.

When the little hero covers the little witch and fights, they can collect monster's blood from defeated enemies. When the little witch's magic gauge is full, she can use magic to fight back the dangerous enemy.

Clear the stage by defeating the boss at certain times in the stage, aim to revenge the demon lord at last.

Advertising the upcoming title 'SkateBIRD' Nintendo tweets "<3 birbs" and then deletes the post

Can't hide from us, Nintendo

Arguably one of the greatest announcements at the recent Nintendo Indie World event, SkateBIRD took the world by storm. Following the live presentation, many noticed Nintendo tweet the phrase "<3 birbs" alongside the trailer for the game. Very soon after, the tweet was deleted and all that was left was the corporate press release tweet. Although the expression of bird love is gone, it will forever stay in our hearts.
