Nintendo Switch Indie Seasons of Heaven Gets a Trailer

The dog in Seasons of Heaven is so cute I just want to die.


Seasons of Heaven by French indie AnyArts is coming to Nintendo Switch. If this trailer is any indicator of what the Nintendo Switch is capable of, the console/handheld hybrid might be a real treat for the eyes.

Seasons of Heaven is based on the novel of the same name and features a boy and his dog exploring a fantasy-based environment. The foliage looks beautiful, and that's something that can help dramatically with immersion. I don't give the artists and programmers who design the forestry and grass in games enough credit. I bet it's a real pain.

More Seasons of Heaven will presumably be shown at the Nintendo Switch reveal event. The Nintendo Switch Presentation will take place January 12 at 11 PM ET/8 PM PT.

      Well that's... very indie. Pretty, although I hope they have someone working on those animations and the pathing still.

        Yeah, some of the motion was a bit janky.

      Well, it's at least showing that the Switch can so some level of pretty graphics. Hopefully they're still optimizing, because there was a good bit of chop in that. Even some of the speedtree stuff was a bit choppy.

        Pretty certain that was all rendered on PC. Will be curious to see the downgrade on final product.

          Yeah that video is 100% running of the PC, its been verified that is the case and that the developer does not even have the dev kit yet(which is sort of alarming at this point).

            I am not sure it is that alarming if they are an indie developer. Nintendo tends to keep a pretty tight leash on their stuff prior to release.

          Interesting that it was running that choppy and at 720p. But, hey, indie, so anything goes, right?
