Numskull Presents also showcased a nearly 7-minute deep dive into Battle Axe, the retro-arcade hack’n’slash inspired by adventure games of yore. Battle Axe creator Henk Nieborg and design director Mike Tucker talked characters, co-op, and the high resolution pixel art, plus showed off one of the game’s boss fights.
Battle Axe is coming April 2021 to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. It will be playable on next-gen consoles via backwards compatibility. You can watch the full deep dive presentation below:
