Released back in May on consoles and PC, Tequila Works’ beautiful platformer Rime combined lush visuals with a stunning world and puzzles, and the title is now on the way for the Nintendo Switch in just a few months.
Tequila Works has announced that Rime will release for Nintendo Switch on November 14th, 2017 in North America, followed shortly after on November 17th, 2017 in Europe both digitally and physically. The digital version of the game will retail for $29.99/€34.99/£29.99, while the physical edition of the game will retail for $39.99/€44.99/£39.99 and include the game’s full soundtrack.
Tequila Works’ CEO and creative director Raul Rubio Munarriz provided a statement on the upcoming Switch version in a press release, explaining “as big fans of Nintendo, we truly appreciate our fans’ patience as Tantalus and Tequila Works continue working on RiME on Nintendo Switch; we are all committed to making sure all players get the high-quality experience they deserve.”
Rime released a few months ago after several years in development, and in our review of the game – which earned a 9.0 – our own Logan Moore found it to be “a masterpiece of visual storytelling,” as he explained that “Rime joins an elite list in my mind of video games that everyone should experience in their lifetime,” and that it “is a masterpiece of the medium.”
Rime is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and will release for Nintendo Switch in November.
