'Max: The Curse of Brotherhood' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch - Screens & Trailer

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood mixes traditional Scandinavian storytelling with an inventive and colorful 2.5D platformer, combining classic jump and run gameplay with smart and innovative puzzles.

When Max wishes for his annoying little brother, Felix, to be whisked away by unknown evil forces, he gets more than he bargained for.

Armed only with a marker and a hope of undoing what he has just done, he sets out on a perilous journey across deserts, eerie lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples and lush green forests to get his younger sibling back.

Along the way Max gains and develops the power to manipulate the environment and overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.

By using the forces of nature, Max can create impressive pillars of earth, powerful streams of water and other elements with his magic marker Max. He must use them to travel through the elaborate cave systems, forests and gloomy castles of Anotherland to save his brother.

The game is built on foundations of Max & the Magic Marker but is more of a reboot than a traditional sequel. Max is still the star but this game is not aimed only at children. The target audience is broader and the core mechanic – the marker - has been refined greatly.

This Nintendo Switch version has a new touch-based control scheme that will let the player to directly draw on screen, improving the precision and agility of the gameplay as in any other previous version of the game.

Key Features:

  • Embark on this classic tale of brotherhood to rescue Max’s kid brother Felix from the grasps of the evil lord Mustacho
  • Explore a world filled to the brim with challenging physics puzzles and frantic platforming
  • Climb, fight and draw their way through deserts, lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples and lush-green-forests
  • Raise great pillars of dirt from the ground to reach new heights, grow trees to make bridges and create swinging vines to cross gaping chasms

Originally released for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, and recently PS4, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will be launched on Nintendo Switch as digital download starting December 21st for €14.99 / $14.99 / £14.99.
