Night and Day: The Curse of the Red Witch headed to the Nintendo Switch next year

Today, Ikigai Gameworks announced that Night and Day: The Curse of the Red Witch, their very first game, will be released on Nintendo Switch in Spring 2019 (alongside other platforms). It’s presented as an “adventure runner with environments never seen before in the genre, and a devilish difficulty”.

Here’s what the Night and Day: The Curse of the Red Witch is all about:

Live the journey of Colwyn and Lyssa, condemned to always be together and eternally separated by a curse. Overcome multiple challenges, touring the forgotten world of Celuria. Confront the red witch and her generals and discover the mystery behind the curse.

The game features “spectacular graphic environment” where day and night collide (it’s in the very title after all!).

As far as gameplay goes, the developers mention shortcuts, bosses (and mini bosses!), but also a game system that seems rather simple at first glance… but with a “tremendously high” difficulty level. According to them, having good reflexes is pretty much a requirement to play this game, with its lane changes, jumps, and dashes.

Here’s the list of key features:

  • Simultaneous control of the two main characters, both in single-player and two-player modes.
  • Tribute to classic arcade games of skill and precision.
  • Simple control scheme.
  • Two different local co-op modes.
  • Camera angles used provide a cinematic experience.
  • Test your reflexes by fighting against awesome bosses and minibosses.
  • Narrative driven, challenging adventure.
  • Discover the beautiful and diverse environments of the world of Celuria.

Finally, here’s some screenshots:
