Underhero for Switch delayed to February 27

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions still launching as planned.


Publisher Digerati and developer Paper Castle have delayed the Switch version of Underhero from its previously planned February 13 release date to February 27 “to ensure that a patch to address a number of issues will be available at launch.”

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will still launch as planned. The PlayStation 4 version will be available today in North America and February 12 in Europe, and the Xbox One version will launch on February 14. A day one patch will be available for both versions.

Here is an overview of the game, via Digerati:


Underhero is an RPG platformer where the chosen hero has failed, and an underling of the evil king reluctantly takes his place as the new hero. Use timing-based combat to defeat enemies as you venture across the land, face off against quirky bosses, and save the Chestnut Kingdom from your own evil boss, Mr Stitches!
