Explore an island in The Touryst on Switch in November

Descend upon an idyllic-looking paradise rife with puzzles in the upcoming Nintendo Switch title.


The Touryst looks to bring puzzle-laden adventure to the Nintendo Switch when it launches later this year. 

During the Nintendo Indie World showcase this morning, Shin'en Multimedia debuted the water-centric island adventure The Touryst, and we were immediately enamored. Just look at it and try not to get at least a little excited.

You may recognize Shin'en Multimedia as the minds behind racer Fast RMX, but this is a much different beast than you would expect. The Touryst instead resembles a Zelda-like adventure where characters explore an island after heading there by boat. As expected, there are plenty of puzzles and different areas to poke around in, with water exploration seemingly included as well.

While we don't know a lot about the game just yet, the mere sight of what looks like a colorful game that's rife with personality coming to Switch has us excited for more. Luckily, we won't have to wait much longer to see what it's all about. It's scheduled to touch down on the system this November.
