Snow Battle Princess Sayuki to get Physical Release on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4

Strictly Limited Games, in partnership with Mebius & Starfish-SD, have announced that they will release a physical version of the 2D action-RPG Snow Battle Princess Sayuki onto the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Snow Battle Princess Sayuki was originally released in 2019 as a digital download on the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Store and Steam (for Windows PC) and sees the snow goddess Sayuki attempt to find ingredients that help will rid the curse of the boy she loves. As part of this adventure players will control Sayuki as she climbs the mountain to defeat monsters and collect items that are needed, with each level ending with a giant boss. The game was originally meant to be part of the Pocky and Rocky/Kiki Kaikai series, but when Square Enix acquired TAITO in 2005 the game was redeveloped into Snow Battle Princess Sayuki.

The snow goddess Sayuki is in love with a mortal boy who has fallen under a grave illness. Therefore, you go on a journey to find a remedy for his condition and gain the trust of the villagers, who are wary of the goddesses. If only the forces of evil wouldn’t get in the way. 

With your trusty bunny Toto at your side, use different types of snow magic, upgrade them and blast your way through the hordes of yokai and other monsters standing in your way!  

Battle Princess Sayuki rewards an aggressive playstyle! 

Snow Battle Princess Sayuki can also be played with a friend who takes the role of Sayuki’s sister Koyuki. Playing in 2-player couch co-op mode will turn the game into a competition. Who will have the highest score at the end?
