GameStop Will Publish Insomniac's New ‘Metroidvania'

Insomniac's next game, Song of the Deep, will be published by the game retailer GameStop, it said today. Insomniac calls the a game a "Metroidvania," which is to say an open-ended 2-D action game in the style of Nintendo's Metroid or Konami's Castlevania. This is a unique move for GameStop, which has some experience actually producing games (it owns the browser game portal Kongregate) but hasn't done a physical release of this sort before. You can buy it digitally this summer or get the disc for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC at GameStop stores.
