1000xRESIST (hyper-cinematic, narrative adventure) coming to Nintendo Switch next year

Fellow Traveller have just announced a new game for Nintendo Switch: 1000xRESIST, a “hyper-cinematic, narrative adventure” game developed by sunset visitor. It will be released sometime in 2023 in Europe and North America.

Here’s the reveal trailer for the game:

Inspired by the likes of NieR:Automata, Perfect Blue (by Satoshi Kon), or even the theatre of Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach), the story of 1000xRESIST will have you experience the past, present, and future, with themes such as memory, identity, and inherited histories. The game features dynamic environments to explore, each with their own style and feel.

Here’s some details and some screenshots for the game:

Relive the memories of a god. Reclaim your legacy across time. RESIST a thousand-year-old lie.

The year is unknown and the air is unbreathable. All that remains are you and your sisters, living under the shadow of a mysterious disease, cloning one another into eternity. In the safety of the Garden, survival is simple. Stay inside. Serve your function. Obey the ALLMOTHER.

You are a CLONE. Your name and function: WATCHER. You relive the memories of the ALLMOTHER and uphold her glory. When your closest sister, FIXER, comes to you with a dangerous rumour…

You phase through time and discover a devastating truth: someone has tampered with history. Will you save your sisterhood? Or burn it to the ground?

1000xRESIST is a hyper-cinematic, narrative adventure. Shift through time. Experience the past, present, and future. Examine memory, identity, and inherited histories, whilst exploring dynamic environments, each with their own distinct style and feel.

The emotionally complex world of 1000xRESIST will push you to a series of difficult decisions, with multiple endings. Your actions will shape the fate of the next generation.

1000xRESIST is a game born of an eclectic set of inspirations, including the games of Yoko Taro (NieR:Automata), the anime of Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue) and Naoko Yamada (A Silent Voice), and even the theatre of Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach)— it’s Kentucky Route Zero meets Neon Genesis Evangelion, featuring a full voiceover by a brilliant cast of Asian-Canadian actors.

1000xRESIST (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet, but is slated for a 2023 release in Europe and North America.
