Skul: The Hero Slayer has a bone to pick with retail, Switch and PlayStation 4 physical versions arriving March 2022

Madrid, Spain – December 17, 2021 – Merge Games is excited to announce it has partnered with Korean publisher, Neowiz, to bring SouthPAW Game’s riveting rogue-lite 2D platformer Skul: The Hero Slayer to retail in March 2022 on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

From Tesura Games we will take care of its distribution exclusively for Spain.


“We are very excited to let our fans know that Skul will be available on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 as a physical version early in 2022. In addition to the standard version and a super-cool collector’s Signature Edition, packed with extras too!” said Sangwoo Park, CEO of SouthPAW

‘Skul: The Hero Slayer’ is an action-platformer that boasts rogue-like features such as ever-changing and challenging maps. It will keep you on your toes, as you will never know what to expect. Skul is no ordinary skeleton. In addition to his formidable fighting skills, he can gain new and exciting abilities depending on which skull he’s wearing. Use up to 2 skulls at a time, each of which has its own unique attack range, speed, and power. Choose combos that match your playing style and switch them in the heat of battle to bring your enemies to their knees. The power is in your hands!

The human race attacking the Demon King’s castle is nothing new and has happened countless times before. What makes this time different though, is that the Adventurers decided to join forces with the Imperial Army and the ‘Hero of Caerleon’ to lead a full onslaught in hopes of wiping out the Demons once and for all. They attacked the Demon stronghold with overwhelming numbers and succeeded in its total destruction. All of the demons in the castle were taken prisoner except for one lone skeleton named ‘Skul’.

The physical edition of Skul: The Hero Slayer will be released on March 25 and will include a manual and digital soundtrack for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. More edit on a possible Signature Edition coming soon.
