Enraged Red Ogre just came to Switch this week, and with new gameplay, fans can get a new look at the action platformer. 17 minutes of footage has come in.

Akaoni will run, jump, and bash with his trusty kanabō on a journey to stop the yokai menace, hoping to also find a missing old friend. Along the way he will met Blu, a small onibi that will help him in his adventure for selfish reasons, allowing Akaoni to use the elemental powers of his enemies!
