Today, Stingbot Games has announced a release date for its upcoming adventure Platformer, The Forbidden Arts. The game will release on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on the 7th August, which is also the day it will leave the Steam early access program and be available to all on PC. A PlayStation 4 release date is still yet to be confirmed, but we do know it will be sometime in Q4 2019.
The Forbidden Arts will see you exploring the fictional world of Chora, with its snowy mountain peaks and infested swamps, while you master the art of pyromancy to aid Pheonix in his quest to save the world from a force of evil.
A vivid art style and the sounds of acoustic guitar are sure to help set the world alive for anyone who plays this game. Looking at screenshots already has my mouth watering. This game looks stunning.

The Forbidden Arts Sets Fire to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Steam on Aug. 7
PlayStation 4 Catches Fire in Q4 2019
SAN FRANCISCO – July 18, 2019 – The Forbidden Arts , the action-adventure platformer from Stingbot Games , will bespell Nintendo Switch and Xbox One alongside its exit from Steam early access and PC/Mac 1.0 release on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019. A PlayStation 4 release will arrive in Q4 2019.
Explore a magical world where secrets are hidden around every corner. Lead Phoenix, a young man who discovers the flame within and embarks on an adventure to learn more about himself and his greater purpose in life while fighting off an evil greater than any the world has ever known.
Inspired by both western and eastern cultures, Phoenix’s world, Chora, possesses a diverse set of biomes including snowy fields, dim caverns, giant beehives, treacherous swamps and more. The Forbidden Arts combines suspense and comedy in a remarkable narrative illustrated in a vivid art style and set to the melodic sounds of an acoustic guitar.
“Our main goal is for players to immerse themselves within Phoenix’s story while focusing on tight platforming action,” said Sterling Selover, founder, Stingbot Games. “Everyone goes through a journey of self-identity and discovery that can be pretty tough, especially when you’re alone. The Forbidden Arts walks through that process with a bit of magic and a hell of a lot of action to keep you on your toes from beginning to end.”
The Forbidden Arts will be available via the Nintendo Switch eShop (worldwide minus Japan and Korea), Microsoft Store (worldwide minus Korea) and Steam (PC and Mac worldwide) for the regular price of $14.99 at launch. It’s currently available on Steam early access for $12.99 until the full launch and can be pre-ordered on Nintendo Switch at 15% off the regular launch price.
The Forbidden Arts supports English, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Hungarian, Russian, Japanese and Italian.
