Drinkbox Studios announced the release of Severed, a touch-enabled hack ‘n slash adventure, for the Nintendo eShop on Wii U™ in Nintendo of America (NOA) and Nintendo of Europe (NOE) territories, and the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems in NOE territories. The Nintendo 3DS version of Severed is also now in final testing in NOA, and will be released in NOA territories as soon as possible.
As part of the launch, Nintendo is featuring the game in its #NindiesSummerJam event, a special Nintendo eShop promotion that will showcase games that inspired Drinkbox Studios, along with a special one-week only 10% off introductory price of $13.49 for Severed. The game will also be cross-buy between Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, so purchasers on one platform can download the game for free on the other platform.
Severed puts players in the role of Sasha, a one-armed warrior who has embarked on a danger-ridden quest to find her family. Players will hack, slash, and swipe their way through both nightmarish monsters and uniquely challenging puzzles.

In Severed, players use swipe-based touch controls to solve puzzles, find secrets and battle with a host of disturbing monsters, including giant floating skull wizards and beasts made of crows. During the journey, players unlock new abilities, ascend an RPG-style upgrade tree, and uncover the mysteries of the dark fantasy universe Sasha finds herself in.
