I had my fun but I’ll be moving on and placing Superbrothers in the depths of my library… I’ll pick it up again another day, but not today, as I’ve got bigger fish to fry.

There isn't any other game on the eShop quite like Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, which is both a good and bad thing.

None of the gameplay is smart or challenging. The environments, while they can be pretty, are nothing special. The story is so non-existent and uninspired, calling it paper-thin is not enough.

Matching pixel stylings with the ambient soundscapes of Jim Guthrie makes Swordbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP a wonderfully weird journey with a good balance of action and puzzle-puzzle-solving. Some of the puzzling can get repetitive, but it's self-aware humor makes these woeful errands less burdensome. With the Nintendo Switch's controller options, Swordbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP finds a welcome home, deserving of a spot on your playlist.
