Posted on November 7, 2021 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
It’s been awhile since we last heard about the Switch version of Beyond Blue, E-Line Media’s underwater narrative adventure game. After it was announced for the system in May 2020, it released on most platforms a month later – though there was no news about when it would be reaching Nintendo’s console.
Thankfully, the wait is almost over. Beyond Blue has now popped up on the Switch eShop with a November 11 release date. Assuming the store page is spot on, you’ll be able to play it in just a few days.
Here’s an overview of the game plus a trailer:
Set in the near future, Beyond Blue explores the mysteries of our ocean through the eyes of Mirai, a deep sea explorer and scientist. Become a part of a newly-formed research team using groundbreaking technologies to see, hear, and interact with the ocean in a more meaningful way than has ever been attempted.
- An evocative narrative with full voice cast – Anna Akana (YouTube), Mira Furlan (Lost, Babylon 5), Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Black Sails, Hotel Rwanda), and Ally Maki (Toy Story 4)
- Exploration and adventure within an untouched world
- A captivating and entertaining soundtrack featuring an original score and music from Miles Davis, The Flaming Lips, The Edisons, and more
- Sixteen unique mini-documentaries called Ocean Insights that feature original footage and interviews with science’s leading ocean experts
Embracing the same inclusive development process that was used to create Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna), E-Line’s BAFTA award-winning game about Alaska Native culture, the company partnered with BBC Studios (developers of the acclaimed Blue Planet II), OceanX Media, world-class game makers, and some of science’s leading ocean experts to craft an experience that reflects the awesome wonder and unbounded mystery that infuses our planet’s beating blue heart.
Beyond Blue will cost $19.99 on the Switch eShop. You can find the official website here.
