Firestoke and Moonloop Games today shared the final release date for Hauntii. The game arrives for Switch on May 23, 2024.

Hauntii was originally unveiled last August. We knew it was slated for 2024, but we didn’t have a more specific beyond that until today.

In case you missed our previous coverage, check out the following overview:

Play as Hauntii, a naive but brave ghost on a relentless quest for answers. A mysterious race of glowing creatures, known as Eternians, guides lost souls to an ominous central tower where they appear to ascend to a higher plane. They look like angels, but no one really knows who they are, nor where they came from.

Unleash ghostly powers to possess both inhabitants and environment, unveiling various solutions to combat and puzzle challenges. Unravel the mysteries of Eternity and shape your fate in a mesmerising adventure like no other!

The game employs a unique hand-crafted art style, making use of line art, animation and a striking two-tone palette. The camera is a character in itself, sweeping over and zooming in and out of the environment to emphasise certain scenes and provide direction to the player.

Meanwhile, Hauntii’s dynamic soundtrack sways and swells with the action on-screen, creating a captivating audiovisual experience.

Key Features

  • Haunt: As a ghost, use your haunting powers to command both creatures and the environment itself.
    Craft an array of solutions to puzzles, and devise various approaches to combat scenarios.
  • Explore: An expansive hand-crafted world, with tight yet open-ended environments. Whichever path you take, there’ll always be something around the corner, waiting to be discovered.
  • Collect: Build the Constellations and uncover the story of Hauntii’s past life. Find the pieces you’ll need by exploring, solving challenges, and trading with other ghosts.
  • Relax: A twin-stick game like no other, Hauntii combines classic shooting action with a slower, more contemplative pace as you traverse the otherworldly landscapes of Eternity – all set to a richly textured soundtrack by LightReturn.
