Publisher Ratalaika Games, along with Gone Mad Studios, today announced plans to bring Hirilun to Switch. It’s launching on December 15, 2023.

Hirilun is a fast-paced first-person platformer set in a dark, strange city with monochrome visuals. Learn more about it in the following overview:

If you like a competitive challenge and a fast paced game then look no further than Hirilun. You are in a dark and strange city, full of hidden places and high buildings. Although anyone can get in, only the fastest will achieve fame all contestants seek…

Hirilun is best described as a time-trial-based first-person platformer in which you explore a dark and strange landscape. Run, jump, glide, sprint and dash to achieve the best possible time, and compete with your friends on the worldwide leaderboards. You will need to move very quickly, running and jumping nonstop, going through all the checkpoints, and reaching your goal is far from easy.

Each level has a multitude of different paths; which will be the fastest one? You’ll have to find out… Collecting the experiences that you will find along the way will make your timer stop temporarily. Still, it may not always be worth the detour…

Six maps make up the setting for the game and collecting items throughout as the world spins and speed is required to make for a very immersive experience. The fact that the pathway to success is not a linear formula adds to great replayability!

Platforming is the main essence of Hirilun and being able to move at speed, jump, contort and manoeuvre, sometimes at impressive distance, to collect items is implemented with consummate ease that allows players to focus on the challenges ahead.
