Earlier this year, a physical release for gorgeous platformer GRIS was announced for Nintendo Switch. Back then, we didn’t have an expected release date apart from the wonderfully vague “2019”, but it looks like we won’t have too long to wait.
The game’s developer, Nomada Studio, has shared the following graphic on Twitter to give us a little more info. Pre-orders for the physical edition will be going live on 25th June; you’ll be able to pick it up from Special Reserve Games.
We gave the game an ‘excellent’ 9/10 in our review. If you’re a physical collector and haven’t yet grabbed GRIS from the eShop, this would be a solid purchase. Here’s what we had to say:
We’re very careful when we use this word, but Gris is a masterpiece. Its jaw-dropping visual style and heart-wrenching score combine for one of the most emotional pieces of interactive art you’ll ever play. It may be too short for some, its puzzles may be on the simple side and the lack of any real challenge may not be to everyone’s taste, but this is a game focused more on fragility than ability and as long as you’re willing to go along for the ride, it’s one that will stick with you for a very long time indeed.
