Publisher WhisperGames, and developer Shanghai AmberDragon, are happy to announce that their new title The Weird Dream will be arriving on Nintendo Switch later this year.

Inspired by Castlevania, Metroid, Dead Cells, and Hollow Knight, among other great games, The Weird Dream provides a brand new experience in a carefully handcrafted fantasy world. You play as a chainsaw-wielding bunny that mysteriously came to be to traverse dangerous but beautifully crafted environments and fight over 40 bosses to uncover the hidden secrets of this abnormally-altered world.

Rush through unique bosses each with their own phases and gameplay challenges.

The Weird Dream is a 2D Metroidvania game set in the ruins of Alpha City. Control a mysterious bunny while confronting Alpha City’s mutated inhabitants. Level up your skills, and unravel the truth behind the City’s untimely destruction. The city holds many legends about the origin of a being only known as the Astral Lord, yet they all share a common detail: the Astral Lord answers sincere prayers and fulfills every desire.

One day, you wake up and realize you’re no longer your old self. Long ears, fluffy fur, and a bunny tail… Not only that, the once-familiar Alpha City is now almost unrecognizable and overrun by monsters. To discover the cause of your mutation and the city’s ruination, you must embark on an epic adventure.
