A few weeks ago, we announced Die for Valhalla! would be coming to Nintendo Switch. Die for Valhalla! had a low Kickstarter threshold of $5,600 and is currently at $6,448 with 14 days to go. It is just over $500 away from its stretch goal that would include “The Tale of the Last Valkyrie”, a horde survival challenge mode.
Die for Valhalla! is a beat ’em up with a paranormal twist. You are a Valkyrie, a ghostly witch, sent to help Vikings save their world. You summon heroes from Valhalla and make them hack, slash and crush. Your job is to make sure they take down as many enemies as possible before they Die for Valhalla! You will also discover tales about Vikings and their Myths. As a Valkyrie, you will seek the truth about yourself and the nature of the world. Things are not always what they seem.
Essentially, this game looks like Castle Crashers took some drugs and woke up in a Norse fever dream. If you’re a fan of side-scrolling beat ’em ups, then do yourself a favor and remember Die for Valhalla! It is projected to release in September 2017, and having been in development for over a year already, it is more likely to meet this goal than most Kickstarter projects.
