Posted on August 6, 2020 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Adventures of Pip, the retro-inspired platformer previously released on Wii U, now has a Switch release date. Tic Toc Games announced today that the game will be available on September 10.
For the Switch version, Tic Toc Games is implementing new features, optimizations, and quality-of-life improvements. We have more information about that below along with details about the game itself.
Embark on a rollicking platforming adventure through Pixelonia, a kingdom where those rendered with more pixels lead more luxurious lives. When the evil Queen DeRezzia from a rival empire steals the kingdom’s pixels and princess, the King and Queen of Pixelonia tell the 1-bit Pip to find someone who can help. Pip soon learns he is a prophesied hero able to connect with the Bitstream and evolve into higher-res forms.
Shift between 1-, 8-, and 16-bit to find the perfect form for defeating each type of enemy, unleashing abilities appropriate for different challenges. Move through tight spaces as 1-bit Pip, whose light frame glides through the skies. Gracefully jump off walls, slam the ground, cling to ledges, and punch and kick as the more acrobatically-inclined 8-bit Pip. Slice through foes and obstacles as 16-bit Pip, a sword-wielding form whose power matches his noble frame.
Learn to weave back-and-forth between the three forms in seamless combos to soar through five themed worlds ranging from lush forests to murky swamps. Travel from stage to stage on a gorgeous overworld, then return to Pip’s home town to purchase new abilities and consumables unlocked by rescuing 108 wayward residents. Become ever-stronger and take down screen-filling world bosses on the way to saving Pixelonia.
Tic Toc Games set out to improve Adventures of Pip on Nintendo Switch to make it the best possible version of the game. View Achievements any time in the Pause menu, access the Town quicker with a shortcut on the map, auto-collect dropped gems, and travel more quickly as 16-bit Pip. It has never been easier to enjoy the sweet nostalgia of Pixelonia while bopping along to Jake Kaufman’s (Shovel Knight, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero) triumphant soundtrack.
Here’s a trailer:
Adventures of Pip will cost $9.99 on the Switch eShop, and pre-orders go live on the eShop today.
