There's plenty of Metroidvania titles on the Switch, and one more is coming with a unique twist. Fantasy Network is coming to Switch in 2021, and it has a social media aspect to it. Read all about the game below.
Raven Travel Studios is excited to announce Fantasy Network – a metroidvania adventure game aiming for release on PC and consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch) in 2021.
Players will explore the colorful, open world of Holua, fight scary monsters and chat to hand-drawn, larger-than-life characters to discover a story that runs deeper than it may seem.
A Kickstarter campaign is planned for the first quarter of 2021 to help fund the last stage of development and the porting of the PC version to consoles.
Since 2017, Fantasy Network’s development has been led by Paolo Cattaneo, working under the alias Raven Travel Studios.
“I've been a game developer for 20 years and dreamed about making Fantasy Network from the beginning. I left my job as a software developer to make this dream a reality, creating a whimsical game which offers my thoughts on the media-centric world we live in.” - Paolo
