VVVVVV Launches for Nintendo Switch on November 17

Nicalis has announced the release date for the Nintendo Switch port of VVVVVV.

The Terry Cavanagh-developed indie platformer will launch on November 17th for $9.99 / €9.99, via the eShop. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the Switch port of the game.

Nicalis boasts the Switch version of the game runs at 60 frames per second and features “bright and colorful throwback graphics,” as well as a handful of visual filters to change things up a bit.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

In VVVVVV you play as Captain Viridian, brave commander of a spaceship whose crew members are accidentally teleported to random locations in an unknown dimension. While exploring the ship and its surroundings, you can switch the polarity of gravity at any time. You can “fall up” to extricate yourself from pits and walk across the ceiling when it’s too dangerous to step on the floor. Viridian uses this ability to search for teleporters, shiny collectible trinkets and the ship’s missing crew.

VVVVVV  has been available PC, Linux, iOS, Android, Ouya, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and the 3DS.
