Developer Parabole Wants Kona to Come to Nintendo Switch
Parabole’s newly announced mystery survival game Kona was announced only yesterday, but we are already a month away from it’s March 17, 2017 release date. Of course, with any new game announcement, a bevy of platform fans will email the developer asking whether their game is coming to their platform of choice.
By luck, it seems like Parabole studios is interested. Responding to fans on Twitter, the team said “We want to, but we can’t confirm anything.”
@sknygy We want to, but we can't confirm anything. We'll keep everyone updated if we decide to port it on Switch in the future 🙂

Of course, the important aspect of the tweet is noting that any port would come “in the future” — any fan hoping to play this on Nintendo Switch anytime soon is better off looking to playing it on PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
For those out of the loop, Kona was a previously PC exclusive game that has been floating around Steam Early Access since early 2015. Only yesterday did news break that the game would be heading to other consoles in the very near future.
As for the game itself, Kona feels heavily influenced by other first-person experiences like Firewatch, Everybodys Gone to the Rapture, and even The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Set in the 1970’s, players take on the role as a private detective checking out a minor case of vandalism.
After an eerie snowstorm hits, the player is tasked with surviving the elements and figure out what is happening in the mysterious village of Atamipek Lake.
As mentioned above, Kona is due for a final release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Mar
