Finji announced that the Infinite Fall developed adventure game Night in the Woods will be headed to Nintendo Switch on February 1.

First released in 2017 on PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux, with a mobile version planned, Night in the Woods tells the story of Margaret “Mae” Borowski, a college dropout who decides to move back home to Possum Springs. Mae quickly learns that some things she once remembered about her town have changed including the knowledge of the town’s hidden secret.

During Night in the Woods, players will be able to control Mae as she learns new mechanics throughout the game. This will allow her to access new areas and get closer to the truth of the town. Players will need to search through the environment and speak with other anthropomorphic animals in order to further the story’s narrative.

Additionally, unique mini-games and side-quests, which are highlighted in the trailer below, offer a nice break between the exploration sections of the game.

Recently, the developer commented on the release of the upcoming mobile version of the game for iOS and Android. If you’d like to know more, check out DualShockers’ glowing review of the game.
