Punishing 2D RPG platformer, Salt and Sanctuary is coming to the Nintendo Switch in just a matter of weeks.

Developer Ska Studios confirmed the port today, noting that the game would be available from August 2 on Nintendo's eShop.

“The two of us wanted to create a Soulslike game that we wanted to play, and finding that so many others who wanted it too warmed our dark little hearts,” said Michelle and James Silva, co-creators at Ska Studios.

“Bringing Salt and Sanctuary to the Nintendo Switch means more people who like dismal, satisfying games can play our very dismal, satisfying game.”

The port comes with the assistance of Blitworks, which has already brought titles like N++ and Don't Starve to Nintendo's hybrid portable.

The Switch version will also include local co-op and New Game+, in addition to Challenge runs and gameplay modifiers like permadeath and no-blocking.

Ska Studios also hinted at a retail version in the works, with further details yet to come.
