Ellada Games has announced that it is ready for players to set sail for Valhalla with the release of Niffelheim. The 2D action-survival side-scrolling RPG will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on September 20th.
The game contains all of the robust fully-realized features that players have come to expect. This includes crafting, dungeon delving, questing, exploration, and most basic of all, surviving. The ultimate goal is to take on all monsters above- and below-ground to gain access to Valhalla.
The console version follows the earlier release of the PC version on Steam and comes with all of its released content. But wait! There’s more! Developers have added new content and creatures that are not found in the PC version. This includes more bosses and special items as well as a number of balance updates and the brand new repair mechanic.

PlayStation 4 launch trailer
Niffelheim puts players in the battle-weary boots of a brave Viking Warrior, woefully felled in battle. Instead of finding well-deserved glory in Asgard, his soul is imprisoned in the harsh, unforgiving realm of Niffelheim, and to survive the hostile surroundings, players must ransack neighboring lands, explore the most dangerous of dungeons, and keep their tortured soul alive long enough to find their way to glorious Valhalla!
- Do What it Takes to Survive: Using only the items that can be collected or forged, players must build shelter, weapons, and armor. Then, brew healing potions and deadly poisons to thwart enemies and prepare delicious, life-restoring meals for themselves and their companions.
- Carve Out a Legacy: Defeat any and all foes who dare to oppose you in your quest for glory. Receive quests from the Death Priests, or go it alone and survive by wits, blade, cunning, and luck.
- Explore and Escape: Scour the cruel environment in search of pieces of the portal to Asgard, heavily guarded by powerful foes — a necessary risk worth taking in order to make an escape!
