A couple of days ago, Microids announced the release date for Flashback – 25th Anniversary, but the French publisher still has some more adventure games for the Nintendo Switch. Today, it announced that Yesterday Origins was headed to the console next month, on May 31st to be more precise. It will be available via the Nintendo eShop, but also at retail!
Developed by Pendulo Studios (already working on a video game based on the Blacksad series, also coming to the Nintendo Switch), Yesterday Origins features a unique art style, and a “mature” storyline, served with a healthy dose of offbeat humour.
It will take you on a journey through times alongside John Yesterday and Pauline Petit, on an investigation full of twists and turns. Their goal? Discover the secret of immortality! There’s also many complete puzzles to solve.
Here’s what the story is all about:
It all starts in the 15th century, when the young John Yesterday is imprisoned for sorcery by the Spanish Inquisition. After escaping, he undergoes an alchemical ritual that makes him immortal. But things do not go as planned, and each time he is resurrected he loses his memory, retaining only flashes of his previous lives. In modern times, John lives peacefully in Paris with his girlfriend, Pauline. She is also immortal, but unlike John, she has kept her memories of her past lives. Together they will try to solve the mysteries of the past and reproduce the ritual so that John can keep his memories. They are not the only ones in search of these secrets however…
Finally, here’s a trailer for the game:
Yesterday Origins (Switch) will be released on May 31st in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
