Oceanside, CA - July 19th - Defeat the Archangels and reclaim the throne of Heaven in Fallen Angel, a fast-paced RPG launching on Nintendo Switch today. Following its Steam launch in October 2020, Matrisoka Games and V Publishing have opened the pearly gates for Switch players to utilize a vast arsenal of weapons and set out on a quest of biblical proportions.



Rock a rebellious red hoodie as Lucifer, who’s on a quest to reclaim his birthright. With no god in place, heaven is up for grabs as vicious archangels lurk around every corner. Venture through weird and wacky levels ranging from gorgeous valleys and decrepit caves to futuristic nightclubs and temples that are bathed in neon (didn’t realize this was secretly a Blade Runner spinoff). 

Pummel enemies around every corner using an array of weapons from blades, chain claws, guns, and more. Players can create their own playstyle by juggling stylish combos using a mix of melee attacks, guns, and Lucifer’s other demonic abilities. Further upgrade perks to increase Lucifer’s skills to become the ultimate outcast. Face vindictive archangels, each with their own complex strategies to provide intense boss battles that require switching up tactics to defeat them. 

Lucifer’s journey doesn’t end after the credits roll. The Switch version also features the most recently added modes.Turbo Mode remixes the game by offering the experience at different speeds, impacting spells, attacks, movement, and more. Punishment Mode puts the player's skills to the test, where regular enemies are larger and stronger, and bosses are deadlier than ever before. 

Fallen Angel is available on Nintendo Switch now! For more information on Fallen Angel follow the game on Facebook and Twitter. Meet fellow heavenly cast-outs in the official Discord.

A full list of features include:

  • Full controller support to suit every player’s preferred style.
