Today’s Nintendo eShop news: Songbringer releasing next week on Nintendo Switch, but also…
- The Low Road
- Nairi: Tower of Shirin
Earlier this week, Double Eleven and Wizard Fu Games announced that Songbringer will be released next week in Europe and North America (on May 31st, to be precise). For those of you who never heard of this game before, it’s a sci-fi adventure following an intergalactic shirtless partier’s stumble across an ancient evil. The Nintendo Switch version will feature all the updates released for other platforms, and the Trial of Ren DLC.
Here’s all you need to know about the game:
Songbringer unfolds as protagonist Roq journeys across the alien planet he’s crashed onto, bringing him more adventure, dangerous encounters and spiritual growth than he could have ever imagined. With help from his mustache-loving robot companion Jib, Roq must explore the perilous world before him, acquiring helpful items like a red party cup, navigating twisting dungeons while besting the freakish beasts within and learning more about the mysterious powers flowing through his temporary home as well as himself.
Each time players begin a new save file, they’ll influence their journey’s overworld map design by choosing a six-letter seed. Songbringer’s world generation keeps each step of Roq’s quest unpredictable, allowing both for immense replayability or to ensure you’re exploring the same map a friend is playing through in their own game.
The powerful objects added to Roq’s inventory can also be combined; Songbringer allows players to discover powerful possibilities including wrapping a flingable top hat in scorching flames or coating their blade in a biting frost capable of freezing pathways across water. With sharp storytelling, powerful allies to befriend and a mound of secrets, Songbringer’s adventure offers ample reason to keep coming back to the lush landscapes of Ekzera.

In 20XX, players will dash, jump, and blast their way through procedurally-built stages made to test their grasp on controls and situational awareness rather than memorization or trial and error.
This structure ensures every session plays out differently than the last and, along with multiple difficulty settings, daily ranked challenges, and co-operative multiplayer (both online and local), provides a near-endless amount content for players to experience and enjoy while jamming out to the heart-warming tunes of 20XX’s pulsing chiptune-inspired soundtrack.
