Independent developer Over The Moon today announced that its award-winning sci-fi adventure, The Fall, will be available on the eShop for Nintendo Switch on May 8, 2018.
In The Fall, players take on the role of ARID (Armoured Robotics Interface Device), the artificial intelligence within a high-tech combat suit, whose human pilot has been rendered unconscious. It’s up to players to take control of the suit and drag his lifeless body towards help through the game’s brooding, atmospheric environments. Combining classic adventure-game puzzle solving, side-scrolling action and expansive Metroidvania-esque exploration, The Fall expertly sets the scene for its recent sequel, The Fall Part 2: Unbound, telling its own fascinating story in the process.
The Nintendo Switch edition of The Fall runs at a resolution of 1080p at 60fps when docked and 720p at 60fps when in handheld or tabletop mode and includes a series of lighting and rendering improvements, as well as control, gameplay, and UX enhancements carried over from its sequel, The Fall Part 2: Unbound.
The Fall will be available for $9.99 / £7.99 / €8.99 on Nintendo Switch and a 30% discount will be available during the first 14 days on sale on the Nintendo eShop.
