It’s always a pleasure to check in with Indivisible, the action RPG from the Skullgirls developers at Lab Zero Games. It remains high on my list of indie games I’m looking forward to thanks to its RPG mechanics, beautiful animation, and a killer soundtrack of Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta. However, now I have even more reasons to look forward to it.
It’s coming to the Nintendo Switch! A new trailer for the game confirms that Indivisible will be playable on Nintendo’s console/handheld hybrid, meaning you’ll be able to play it wherever you want.
Indivisible is a new RPG/platformer IP, starring Ajna (AHZH-na), a girl who sets out on a globe-spanning journey to discover the truth behind her mysterious powers. On her quest she’ll be joined by a variety of unique heroes and gain new abilities to traverse the environments and defeat the enemies they’ll encounter along the way.
Indivisible is inspired by classic platformers and RPGs, but with the unique characters and gameplay depth Lab Zero is known for.
In addition to a fresh spin on RPG gameplay, Indivisible features a deep storyline inspired by southeast Asian and other world mythologies, Lab Zero’s trademark feature-quality 2D hand-drawn animation, a lush soundtrack from legendary Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta, and an opening animation by popular anime studio Trigger.
Crowdfunding darling making lots of progress
It’s hard not to smile when you think of Indivisible’s crowdfunding success. Its campaign launched at about the time cynicism towards Kickstarter failures had grown to epic proportions, and because of that, Indivisible failed to gain any traction through Indiegogo. However, the indie community, publisher 505 Games, and gamers alike, knowing that Lab Zero Games was good for its word, rallied around the project and helped push it over the top.
For but a brief moment, the internet came together to make this game happen, and it was beautiful. It’s been two and a half years since then, but with frequent updates and loads of content to drool over, Lab Zero Games can take all the time it wants.
Indivisible will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in 2018.
