The developers over at 18Light Game and Fun Zone Games will port over Pronty, a currently available on PC side-scrolling adventure, to the Switch in March.

It has been over a year since the side-scrolling action-adventure title Pronty released on the Steam platform for PC users, and now the developers of what seems like a Bioshock X Metroidvania crossover have announced the title will receive a Nintendo Switch port that arrives on March 7th. The release trailer released way back in 2021 can be seen below.

The now-live Nintendo Switch listing of Pronty has provided a small synopsis of the title “Dive through four hundred years of technological advancements into the underwater city of Royla, where humanity once found a new home. That is until this future Atlantis was beset by fierce monsters mutated by toxic marine waste. Take on this unprecedented threat as the sea guardian Pronty, and fight alongside your javelin partner Bront to take down the mutants, discover the truth behind the creatures’ sudden invasion, and uncover the secrets behind Pronty’s origins.” The listing also outlines some of the key features players can encounter while exploring Royla.
