Iconoclasts, the excellent Metroid-inspired platformer that released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Vita earlier this year, is coming to Switch with a few additions.

It doesn't have a specific release date other than "later this year", but the Switch version of the game will have expanded difficulty options and a boss rush mode. Players will be able to change difficulty in the middle of the game in case you want to drop the challenge for one specific sequence or boss. There will also be, "a difficulty that lets you get past harder challenges without dying," according to the game's developer, Joakim Sandberg. The difficulty options and boss rush modes will also be made available for the PlayStation 4, Vita, and PC versions of the game.
