Rabi-Ribi heading to Switch

Posted on January 8, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Rabi-Ribi is coming to Switch, Winking Entertainment has announced. The side-scrolling platformer is currently without a release date, but we imagine it will be ready sooner rather than later.

Here’s more information about the game:

There never quite seem to be enough bunny girls in the world, so here is another for you aficionados out there. This 2D sidescrolling exploration platformer follows the adventure of Erina, whose humdrum life as a regular rabbit is turned upside-down when she finds herself in an unknown world and turned into a human (with rabbit ears)!
Along the way she meets the cheerful pink-haired fairy, Ribbon, who mysteriously chooses to stay by Erina’s side.
These unwitting heroes embark together on their quest to restore Erina’s life to normalcy, but who knows what troubles lurk, waiting for them…

Rabi-Ribi is a 2D exploration platformer that focuses on non-linear gameplay. There will be hints to guide the player along, but they’re never required to follow them, which allows for much greater freedom to—you guessed it—explore.
Players will play as our protagonist Erina, who focuses on close quarters combat. Ribbon the fairy is the ranged attacker who follows Erina’s lead, indirectly controlled by the player.

Erina may be a little rabbit that was turned into a human, but that doesn’t stop her from being capable of some pretty neat moves.

Both Erina and Ribbon’s abilities can be improved by learning new skills and attacks through collecting items and upgrades that are spread throughout the world.
What trinkets and skills to pick up is up to the player; dare you challenge hard mode without any items?

– Retro exploration platformer featuring a bunny girl.
– 4+n difficulty settings for all types of players.
– 9+ main areas and 20+ sub-areas to explore.
– Over 60 items and upgrades.
– Over 20 fully illustrated characters with cutscene illustrations.
– 40+ boss battles, 1000+ attack patterns with Boss Rush Mode to fight some or all of them in a row.
– Post game story and content with speedrun mode which takes out every section of the game where the player cannot control the main character.
– Over 50+ pieces from an original soundtrack.
– English, Chinese and Japanese support.
– Bunny.

You can view a trailer for Rabi-Ribi below. When a release date is shared, we’ll let you know.

    Oh boy… I’m getting this

  • Another game I bought on Steam that I should have held out on. I’m never buying any indie games on Steam ever again.

    I was holding out on buying this game on Steam or PS4, but seeing this coming to Switch just blew me away. Sorry, Steam and PlayStation, but this is going on my Switch!

    I was thinking about getting it on the Vita but maybe now I’ll actually get it on the switch. Especially since I’m finally finishing some of the games I had half completed two years ago.

    My kind of game. Super interesting.

  • Resha

    YESSS! I tried to play this on my pc a while back, but my computer can’t handle it. This is perfect. ^^

  • WTFISTHISSHIT?

    Likely I held out from buying this on Steam!

  • Even if it’s port from a 2014 Steam game, I was planning to create a 2D platformer game with bunny girls. Now I feel sad and even more uninspired.

    • Kilvoctu

      Make it with doggie girls. Too many cat girl in games and hardly any from the other end.

      • Nah unfortunately, with the concept I want to create it would be weird. But thanks for the suggestion ^^.

  • MagcargoMan

    Playing as an actual rabbit sounds like it’d be more interesting than an animu “bunny” girl to be honest.

  • R.Z.

    Not the trash I expected this to be judging by the trailer.
    I am interested.
