French developer and publisher Dotemu announced today that Another World, the groundbreaking 1991 cinematic platformer from The Digital Lounge, is available on the Nintendo Switch for $9.99. Fans who remember this game from the 90’s might want to give this version a try as you’ll be able to play with both the classic graphics and a visually improved version.
Another World tells the remarkable tale of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young and rather talented physicist. While working on an experiment using a particle accelerator, a lightning bolt strikes his lab, causing an unforeseen particle fusion. The accompanying explosion opens a hole in the fabric of space and time, teleporting Lester to a barren, alien planet. Players lead Lester through a series of dangerous environments, battling alien soldiers and wild creatures while solving unique and creative puzzles in order to survive.
Another World’s Nintendo Switch version features:
- Gorgeous, immersive HD visuals
- Real-time switching between updated and classic graphics
- Three difficulty modes
- A captivating, branching world to explore and fight through
- Inventive and satisfying puzzles
- An atmospheric, ambient soundtrack
