Rime Official Site Opens – Confirms Switch Version Releases In May

Yesterday we reported that Rime would be coming to Nintendo’s new console, the Switch. The gameplay trailer showed off what looks to be a fun adventure game littered with puzzles to solve. It’s been confirmed the game is scheduled to release in May for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. At this time it may only end up being a digital product on the Switch, but that could change. We will keep you updated as more information is revealed.

 

 

For now, check out the official site. It has a few more nuggets of information, although some areas seem to be unfinished.

 

Grey Box, Six Foot and independent developer Tequila Works have announced that RiME, the highly anticipated puzzle adventure, will launch this May on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, as well as three new platforms: Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC.

“We’re proud and excited to reveal that fans on multiple platforms will be able to experience RiME this spring,” said Raúl Rubio Munárriz, CEO and creative director of Tequila Works, which confirmed its partnership with publisher Grey Box and Six Foot last year. “We want to express our most sincere gratitude to all those who never lost hope, faith and patience towards us. They gave us the will and strength to create such a personal experience, and we cannot wait to show you more of RiME in the coming months.”

RiME is a single-player puzzle adventure about discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. Players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time. Inspired by the rugged, sunbaked terrain of the Mediterranean coast, RiME paints its breathtaking world with a fusion of vibrant colors and moving musical undertones to set the stage for the deeply personal journey that awaits within.

“Once we began working with Tequila Works, we became excited at the prospect of releasing RiME to a much wider audience,” said Christian Svensson, chief operating officer of Six Foot. “This is a title we think will resonate with gamers, and we can’t wait to share it with them in a few short months.”

RiME will be available for retail pre-order on the PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One. For more information, visit www.rimegame.com, and follow the title on Facebook and Twitter.
