RIME: Nintendo Switch version by Tantalus, possible retail version, Q&A

A few weeks ago, Tantalus (developers of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD) announced they had several projects in the works for the Nintendo Switch. Following the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017, earlier this month, we learned that they were behind the Nintendo Switch version of Sonic Mania.

And yesterday, it was revealed that Tantalus was also working on another port for the Nintendo Switch… RIME! Naturally, they’re working side by side with the developers to ensure the Nintendo Switch version is absolutely true to the original vision, and it seems they’ve done a pretty great job.

As for whether the Nintendo Switch version will be released alongside the other platforms, the developers explain that it’s something they’re working hard for, though there’s still a lot of development to take into consideration. More details will be shared in the near future.

That also applies to the possible retail release: the developers are currently working with Grey Box (the publisher) to check on the production pricing for Nintendo Switch game cards, and they should have more information to share in the near future.

If you want to learn more about the game, then you should definitely check out the Q&A posted by IGN yesterday. It answers various questions about the game, including how long it is, whether you can backtrack to all areas in the game, and more.

Here’s the answer about how long the game is:

The game length can vary significantly from player to player. It will largely depend on how much you want to explore the island and unveil all of its secrets (and we wholeheartedly recommend you do precisely that, as they serve to help flesh out the story) or just speedily progress through the game. On average, RiME can take anywhere from 8-10 hours for one play through, but it can also be a couple hours fewer or more. It really does come down to each player and their playstyle.
