About Freedom Planet
Freedom Planet is a fast-paced combat-driven platform adventure that pits a spunky dragon girl and her friends against hostile foreign powers and alien attack forces. There’s trouble around every turn, from insects to giant robots to sheer explosive destruction, but players will have a variety of special fighting abilities at their disposal to blast through more than a dozen massive, nonlinear stages. The campaign may be played through as Lilac, Carol, or the unlockable Milla, each of whom has completely unique gameplay mechanics, an altered story mode in which the selected character takes the lead, and even a few of her own unique stages.

Developed by GalaxyTrail and published on the Nintendo Switch system in North America by XSEED Games and in Europe by Marvelous Europe, Freedom Planet is now available digitally in the Nintendo eShop for $14.99, €14.99, and £12.99. The 35% discount promotion will run for 2 weeks starting today in North America, while Marvelous Europe will be running a similar promotion for European players starting November 30.
