Puzzle platformer Sephonie incoming for Switch

Posted on July 13, 2023 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop


Sephonie has previously released on PC, and a new Switch version is about to launch. Publisher Ratalaika Games and developer Analgesic Productions confirmed that it’s hitting Nintendo’s console on July 21, 2023.

Sephonie is a puzzle platformer in which players parkour through an island’s massive cave network. More information can be found in the following overview:

You play as three East Asian scientists, Amy, Ing-wen and Riyou, each with a distinctive personality. Each has stories and cultural references you’ll learn about as you guide them through tricky caves with your fast, gravity-defying platforming moves. Sephonie seamlessly integrates 3D platforming and a complex story about ecological themes and Asian history.

The player starts on the island surface, then enters red, sandstone caverns, before making their way to a jade-coloured cavern of towering trees. In between exploration, meet wondrous creatures who grant you new platforming abilities, and experience “Mindshares”, short, visual novel-esque segments, where you get to hear about the lives of the three protagonists.

During a “Mindshare,” the characters are actually learning about each other’s experiences and secrets! As they grow closer, the levels start to surreally become places from their lives, such as a Tokyo cityscape, Japanese shopping malls, and American Midwest suburbs!

Use acrobatic moves to navigate lush, jade canopies and rusty sandstone spires! Every surface is yours to climb.

  • Fling yourself over high ledges using the satisfying Teledash Vault
  • Deftly Wall-run across any vertical surface
  • Grapple through the air with the help of long-tongued Ribbats
  • Effortlessly Glide by using floating Dandelion Puffs
  • Use a Fusion Pod to perform a rocket-like Super-Dash
