There's fewer things more fun than seeing a cool-looking game announced during a livestream event - and then immediately finding out it will be available to purchase and play that exact same day! Fans were treated to this experience during the May 11 Nintendo Indie World Event, which revealed combination dungeon crawler and looter-shooter Soundfall, available on the Switch beginning later that day.
Players take on the role of one of five Guardians of Harmony, music geniuses transported to the land of Symphonia and tasked with fighting against the encroaching forces of Discord. In combat, they can choose between around 140 songs and match their in-battle actions to the beat in order to earn higher scores and more points. Guardians of Harmony can also collect over 500 pieces of music-themed equipment and combine them to create a truly unique fighting style.
Quest to the beat solo or with up to 4 players in a dungeon crawler that combines looter-shooter action with rhythm-based gameplay!

Players can explore a colorful world, jam out to the beat, and save the music starting today. A PC version of Soundfall was also announced; it is available to purchase via Steam starting today.
