Tequila Works has finally given a date for the release of their acclaimed platformer Rime on Nintendo Switch. The game will be available on November 14 in North America, and November 17 in Europe. Rime was originally released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC back in May, when we gave it a great review, describing it as one of the most original platforming games of the generation. For us, the game’s strengths were “in its ability to draw emotions from the player using the combination of great art, music, and a thought provoking ending.”

Rime puts players in control of a young boy who is stranded in a mysterious island full of secrets, and needs to solve numerous puzzles in order to progress in his adventure. Gameplay mechanics involve using lighting, the sound of the boy’s voice, and even manipulating time to solve each problem.

The game will launch in both physical and digital formats, with the former being a special edition including a code to download the original soundtrack composed by David Garcia Diaz. The digital edition will cost $29.99, while the physical edition is priced at $39.99.
