LONDON, UK – March 31, 2022 – Meet Nin and discover your inner fire in a playable demo of Imp of the Sun, launching today on the Nintendo Switch™ system.
 

Available to download from Nintendo eShop, the demo introduces players to Imp of the Sun’s stunning Peruvian-inspired world, letting them explore the Amazonian jungle and come face to face with Ruku, Keeper of the Jungle, on Nin’s journey to end the Eternal Eclipse.
 

Developed by Sunwolf Entertainment and published by Fireshine Games, Imp of the Sun is a nonlinear 2D action-platformer set in a lovingly hand-drawn world. Discover the four corners of the empire as you set out on an adventure as Nin, an imp created from the final spark of the sun, on your quest to restore the sun’s power before the world is plunged into darkness.
 

From the bright peaks of the Andean mountains to the dense Amazonian jungles, explore the empire and refine your skills in streamlined gameplay built for fluid movement and fast, combo-based combat. Wield the power of the flame, discover new abilities and become more powerful as you venture across the empire to defeat the Four Keepers in any order you choose, all set to a stunning Peruvian soundtrack and striking art style.
 

Imp of the Sun is available now on the PlayStation®5 (PS5) system, the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. For more information, follow @impofthesun on Twitter or visit fireshinegames.co.uk.
