A year ago, Electronic Arts kicked off its indie publishing program EA Originals by announcing an intriguing gem: Fe, created by studio Zoink from Gothenberg, Sweden. The wordless adventure game follows a woodland creature as it roams a geometric, stylized wonderland. Today at Gamescom, we got another trailer and great news for Switch fans: The game is coming to Nintendo's console in early 2018. Fe arrives to the Nintendo Switch in Early 2018 and is being developed by @EA Originals! While the first footage we saw at E3 2016 showed promise, today's video threatened some seriously heartwarming adventure.
Tequila Works' highly-anticipated indie game Rime, formerly planned as a PS4 exclusive, is also headed to PC, the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. While some were worried the open-world adventure would cost more on the Switch (it won't), Rime will still take longer to arrive on Nintendo's portable console. The publishers have finally announced a release date for the title: November 14th for North American Switch owners and November 17th for European ones. The digital download version of Rime will run $30 on the Nintendo eShop, while a physical copy with a code to download the soundtrack will set you back $40. "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," said Tequila Works' CEO Raúl Rubio Munárriz in a statement.
Nintendo announced all the details of its Switch console on Friday morning, revealing a 3 March launch date and £280 price tag. Everyone was expecting a new Super Mario title and perhaps a remaster of ElderScrolls V: Skyrim – and those were certainly delivered. But what else has been confirmed? Here are the titles we're most looking forward to. Now confirmed as a launch title, the latest adventure in the legendary series will see Link exploring a lushly detailed open-world version of Hyrule.
In a lot of ways Breath of the Wild is a standard Zelda title. It's an action role-playing adventure, following Link as he sets out to kill the evil sorcerer Ganon before this mythic monster can escape an enchanted castle and destroy Hyrule. You battle monsters, level up, collect new weapons and items, slowly gain the strength needed for the final showdown.
Ron Gilbert has had his fingers in quite a few adventure games over the years, including Lucas Arts' Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, along with Hothead Games' Penny Arcade Adventures, Death Spank, and Dobule Fine Productions' The Cave. He also spent some time at Humongous Games, making educational titles like Blue's 123 Time Activities and Spy Fox in Hold the Mustard. Gilbert's latest genre entry, in collaboration with longtime partner Gary Winnick, is Thimbleweed Park, funded on Kickstarter back in 2014. Released to Windows, Mac and Xbox One in March, the title is coming to PlayStation 4 on August 22nd and Nintendo's Switch sometime in September. According to the developer, Thimbleweed Park on the Switch will support both Joy-Con Controllers as well as touch screen controls.
