Afterimage: a beautiful Metroidvania on Nintendo Switch

The unique portable capabilities of the Nintendo Switch as a console make it the perfect platform for certain types of games. Metroidvania-style 2D sidescrollers are perfect for the handheld mode of the console, and the latest title that fits into that category is a good example of that. Afterimage is an exciting Metroidvania adventure that uses hand-drawn graphics with an anime style to deliver an incredible experience full of action. In the game, you take the role of Renee, a young girl who has lost her memories. In Afterimage, she embarks on a perilous journey across the world of Engardin to find clues about her past. When she abandons the ruins of her now-destroyed home, she sets in motion a series of events that will change the future of the world.

When it comes to gameplay, Afterimage is a fast-paced action game where you traverse a beautiful world fighting against a plethora of enemies in challenging encounters. The game features over 170 types of enemies and 30 bosses that will do their best to stop Renee in her tracks. Fortunately, you have a wide variety of weapons at your disposal and can unlock powerful skills. You will be able to create many different builds and upgrade your equipment to fit your favorite playstyle.



An epic adventure

Afterimage is set in a non-linear world that you can explore as you please while uncovering secrets, completing quests, and learning more about the story of Engardin. The decisions you make during the game and your performance will determine which of the multiple endings you reach.
