Rain Games today set a release date for the Switch version of Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne and also made a physical release official.

The game will launch via the eShop on April 3, 2024. Additionally, it’s been announced that Rain Games is partnering with PM Studios on a physical version. Different goodies will be included in the Genius Edition – specifically an art book, pin, stickers, poster, standee, and a digital download for the original soundtrack. The physical version arrives on May 7.

Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne was originally funded on Kickstarter in 2020. Read more about it below.

Discover the award winning, gaslamp fantasy world of “Girl Genius™”! Experience Agatha Heterodyne’s story, as she navigates the hostile hallways, catacombs and kitchens of her ancestral home, Castle Heterodyne.

As the Lost Heir to a mad family, she must return the ancient fortress to its former glory and ascend the throne as a “True Heterodyne”. Only then can she stand up to the might of the Wulfenbach Empire and other power hungry usurpers. But first, she has to contend with a corrupted and insane AI controlling the castle, its spiky death traps, and bottomless doom-pits. Not to mention the painfully pink cherry on top, Zola Heterodyne. Another lost child? Or just another villain here to steal your thunder.

Time to find out.
