Retro-Inspired Fox n Forests Gets Release Date, New Gameplay Video

Publisher EuroVideo Medien and Bonus Level Entertainment have announced a worldwide release date for Fox n Forests.

Planned for release in the spring of 2018, the retro-inspired 16-bit platformer will launch on May 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, macOS and Linux. EuroVideo and Bonus confirmed that it would be priced at $19.99/€19.99.

Along with the announcement of a release date, the Fox n Forests developer has released a new video (posted below) that shows “one of the beautifully designed levels inspired by the classic SNES-era.”

Bonus launched a Kickstarter campaign for Fox n Forests in 2016 and successfully funded the Steam Greenlight-backed title in the same year.

Players take control of Rick, who possesses a magical crossbow that has the ability to change between two seasons in each level.

“Only by mastering the seasons will Rick be able to outfox his enemies, explore the mystic forest, solve brain-teasing puzzles, claim victory against colossal bosses and bring the mystery of the fifth season to light,” reads the press release for Fox n Forests.
