Update (Thu 23rd Apr, 2020 15:15 BST): Merge Games has now revealed that Spirit of the North will arrive on Switch on 7th May, with pre-orders going live on the eShop from 30th April. It’ll be priced at £19.99/ €20.99/ $24.99.
Original Article (Tue 18th Feb, 2020 18:30 GMT): Following its PS4 launch last year, Infuse Studio’s indie adventure Spirit of the North will be making the leap to Nintendo’s Switch in the spring, according to publisher Merge Games. If you missed it in the flood of games last November, the game is a third-person single-player adventure that has you getting under the fur of a red fox and exploring Icelandic landscapes on a quest of self-discovery.
In your travels you come across the foxiest of ladies – a female spirit fox – who also happens to be the guardian of the Northern Lights. As you can see from the trailer above, there’s plenty of puzzles, ancient civilisations and glowing sigils to enjoy as you explore the tundra.
We missed it on PS4, but it all looks rather soothing and beautiful. Here are a few features highlighted in the official blurb followed by some screenshots:
• Make your way across stunning landscapes, on an emotionally stirring journey.
• Solve environmental puzzles to change the world around you, using ancient powers bestowed upon you by the guardian of the Northern Lights.
• Follow the mysterious Spirit Fox across a land left in ruin as you discover more about a lost civilization.
• Moving orchestral soundtrack featuring 14 original compositions.
While it may not be the Fox Nintendo fans want to see emerging from its hole this spring, we’re always game for a calming, charming adventure and with the PS4 version getting a relatively positive reception, this could be one keeping an eye on.
I wanna take you home, haha. I won’t do you no harm, no. You GOT to be all mine, all mine… Let us know if you wanna take Spirit of the North home below.
