Australian Independent publisher Nnooo has revealed that Anodyne will becoming to Nintendo Switch on February 28.
The award-winning 16-bit adventure game, by two person studio Analgesic Productions will come to the Nintendo Switch eShop later this month – available for pre-purchase from February 21.
Bruce Thomson, Business & Marketing Director at Nnooo said, “A major inspiration for Anodyne was The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening so we think the game will resonate with Nintendo fans. While Anodyne pays homage to the 16-bit era, Analgesic Productions have created a unique action-adventure game with their own unusual mix of darkness and humour.”
Sean Han Tani, Director at Analgesic added, “It’s an amazing opportunity to be able to bring Anodyne to Nintendo Switch! I’m excited to have new players discover the dreamy atmosphere of Anodyne for the first time, and experience our surreal twist on the 2D Zelda genre. Likewise, to our longtime fans who have been eagerly anticipating this release: thank you for the support! I hope everyone will enjoy playing Anodyne on Nintendo Switch!”
Originally launched to critical acclaim on PC and Mac by the then student team, Anodyne took home an Honorable Mention at the IGF Student Showcase in San Francisco. It launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September, 2018.
It is set in a large overworld with many quirky, challenging dungeons filled with a variety of unusual enemies, overlaid with an unsettling musical score.
Anodyne will be priced at $14.99.
