World to the West won’t be on Switch until January 18, but some footage is already emerging. Take a look at 10 minutes of gameplay below.

Teslagrad for Switch is heading to North America and Europe next month, but in Japan, it’s already available. Check out some footage below.

Rain Games announced a release date for the Switch version of World to the West today. The game, which is a standalone sequel to Teslagrad, will be available on January 18. Pricing is set at $19.99 / €19.99 /£19.99.

Developer Rain Games has confirmed that Teslagrad will be available on the European and North American Switch eShop on December 7th. A listing found on the North American eShop already more or less confirmed this, but now we know for sure. Meanwhile, the Japanese eShop will be getting the game a bit earlier, on November 16th.


Japan is getting the Switch version of Teslagrad on November 16. In North America, its release could be taking place a few weeks later. The Switch eShop currently lists it for December 7.

Teslagrad will cost $19.99 on Switch. It takes up 482MB.

During a Flyhigh Express broadcast today, a Japanese release date for Teslagrad on Switch was confirmed. It’ll be out on the eShop beginning November 16. We expect that Teslagrad will also be available in North America and Europe at around the same time.

Japanese publisher Flyhigh Works just held a video presentation ahead of the Tokyo Game Show next month, which announced new games for Switch and more. Three titles are confirmed for Switch: Deemo, OPUS: The Day We Found Earth, Teslagrad.

Deemo is a rhythm game made by Rayark Games, the same team behind Implosion. It will be released in Japan this month, and likely the west soon as well.

Yesterday, Rain Games announced that World to the West is coming to Switch. The Wii U version hasn’t been abandoned, however.

Rain Games shared the following regarding World to the West on Wii U:

“While porting to Switch has been a very smooth and pleasant process so far, Wii U is harder to optimize for, mostly due to the way the hardware is setup, and how the Wii U version is baed on an older version of the engine to ensure full system compatibility.

But we knew this going in, so we made sure that the game could stand up on its own without changing the main gameplay experience. We’re dedicated to making it play well on every platform! As far as an ETA is concerned, we’re hoping to get it out as soon as we can, but we don’t have a way to lock down a date yet, so I can’t get more specific than that.”

Rain Games created the well-received Teslagrad on Wii U. This year, the studio also wrapped up World to the West, a title set in the same universe that should also be on the console soon.

Following up on those two games, Rain Games intends to create a third title set in the same universe. Naturally, with things in such as early state (it’s unclear if development has even started just yet), there’s nothing in the way of information for now. However, a release on Nintendo platforms is very likely given Rain Games’ previous support.
