Another World Heads to Switch in April 2018

DotEmu has announced they’re porting the classic adventure game Another World to Switch.

The game will hit the hybrid console sometime in late April this year, and it will support English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish languages.

Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the Switch port. DotEmu said they worked closely with original creator and visionary Eric Chahi on the Switch version to keep it as close to the original as possible.

Here’s a brief rundown on the game, via DotEmu:

Another World tells the remarkable tale of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young and rather talented physicist. While working on an experiment using a particle accelerator, a lightning bolt strikes his lab, causing an unforeseen particle fusion. The accompanying explosion opens a hole in the fabric of space and time, teleporting Lester to a barren, alien planet. Players lead Lester through a series of dangerous environments, battling alien soldiers and wild creatures while solving unique and creative puzzles in order to survive.
