Adult Swim Games today announced the launch of Rain World, the challenging survival platformer from independent developer Videocult, on Nintendo Switch.Having already come out on PS4 in 2017, the Nintendo Switch version of Rain World will include all content up to Update 1.7 which will appear on PS4 on December 21st. That means the Nintendo Switch version will be slightly ahead by a week.
This update introduces two new playable characters – the Monk and the Hunter – which accommodate different play styles and balance the game’s challenges accordingly. It also adds local multiplayer featuring Competitive and Sandbox modes for up to four players, over 40 unlockable multiplayer rooms, an updated bestiary with new predators and prey, as well as general overall improvements and surprises.
Inspired by the design and aesthetics of 16-bit classics, Rain World makes you a Slugcat in a vast, ever-changing world full of danger you must face alone. Hunt for food and shelter while enduring torrential downpours, limited resources and terrifying encounters with vicious predators. You’ll need to move quickly and stealthily, using your wits and reflexes to survive. Climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries, and find your lost family before death finds you.
Rain World is available to purchase today in North America for $19.99 via the Nintendo eShop.
