First Play – Skelattack (Switch)

This week, a parcel turned up on my doorstep.

Inside it was a set of stickers and a t-shirt with a cartoon skeleton on it. I had no idea what it was supposed to be, but the t-shirt was size XXL so already I was furious.

The sticker sheet said Skelattack on it and featured the Konami logo at the bottom, so I gave Konami a call and asked what in the bloody hell was going on.

Turns out Skelattack is a brand new Metroidvania game developed by California-based studio Ukuza, and Konami has stealthily released it this week on all major formats.

I asked Konami for review code and they graciously sent one over for the Switch, so below you can check out my first 30 minutes with the game. Enjoy!

Skelattack is out now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC as a digital-only release. I’ll be posting a review on the site once I’ve spent more time with it.

In order that I could make this video, I received a review code from a PR (and a t-shirt, which I wasn’t expecting). The content of my review and the opinions therein were in no way positively influenced by this: if anything, the t-shirt being two sizes too big made me angry.
