Skul: The Hero Slayer, the riveting rogue-lite 2D platformer published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, is finally coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch consoles on October 21st, 2021. In addition to the console launch, a new update has been announced that includes the all-new Hard Mode, new enemies, and a whole lot more. This will be added to all versions in the coming weeks. More details on that update can be found here.
‘Skul: The Hero Slayer’ is an action-platformer that boasts rogue-like features such as ever-changing and challenging maps. It will keep you on your toes, as you will never know what to expect. Skul is no ordinary skeleton. In addition to his formidable fighting skills, he can gain new and exciting abilities depending on which skull he’s wearing. Use up to 2 skulls at a time, each of which has its own unique attack range, speed and power. Choose combos that match your playing style and switch them in the heat of battle to bring your enemies to their knees. The power is in your hands!
“Skul’s journey to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation has been a long one – but we’re thrilled the little guy is finally making his debut during the spookiest time of the year. We never imagined the success Skul would see on Steam in the past year, and we know the future is bright for everyone’s favorite boney little anti-hero on consoles.”

The human race attacking the Demon King’s castle is nothing new and has happened countless times before. What makes this time different though, is that the Adventurers decided to join forces with the Imperial Army and the ‘Hero of Caerleon’ to lead a full onslaught in hopes of wiping out the Demons once and for all. They attacked the Demon stronghold with overwhelming numbers and succeeded in its total destruction. All of the demons in the castle were taken prisoner except for one lone skeleton named ‘Skul’.
