Two Tribes has released a new update for Rive: Ultimate Edition on Switch. Version 1.21 has now started distribution.

The main highlight of today’s update is support for video capture. For the full patch notes, continue on below.

System: Switch
Release date: November 17, 2017
Developer: Two Tribes
Publisher: Two Tribes


In RIVE, you control a spider-mech that is piloted by a loud mouthed, raunchy captain as he tries to escape a space warehouse that constantly pours threat after threat his way. As far as story- that’s as much as you’re going to get, aside from awkward one-liners and poor pop culture references. The story never grows into much more than that, but that’s completely fine. A game like RIVE doesn’t need a huge encompassing tale to keep you invested, just the quick paced action of the 7ish hour campaign will keep you invested enough.

Rive: Ultimate Edition is out today on the Switch eShop. See the launch trailer from Two Tribes below.

Two Tribes is finally publishing its shooter Rive on Switch at the end of this week. Get a look at a video comparing the new release to the PlayStation 4 version below.

A couple of years ago, Nintendo held a [email protected] initiative during E3 2015. The event allowed Wii U owners to download demos of indie games featured at E3. Then when each title launched, those who downloaded the different demos would receive a 15% discount at launch.

Rive was one of the games included in [email protected] But as we know, it ended up being cancelled for Wii U. We’re now getting it on Switch instead. However, Two Tribes is still holding true to its original promise.

Rive: Ultimate Edition will initially be sold for 15% off for all Switch owners starting this Friday. The discount will be offered for the first two weeks after launch.

Two Tribes has finally announced a release date for Rive on Switch. Nintendo’s console will be getting Rive: Ultimate Edition on November 17.

Rive is a “metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter”. This new version lets you play with a friend in Copilot Mode, supports HD Rumble, and has 48 achievements. The game also loads faster, plays smoother, and has been “tweaked to perfection”.

During Rive’s early days of development, Two Tribes intended to bring the game to Wii U. Nintendo even featured the game as part of its [email protected] program at E3 a few years ago, allowing system owners to download a demo. Unfortunately, the Wii U version never materialized due to technical issues.

Rive may have missed out on Wii U, but it is coming to Switch. Two Tribes is wrapping up this version of the game and has shared some technical details. Rive will officially run at a 1080p resolution (720p in portable mode) and 60 frames per second. Two Tribes’ Collin van Ginkel also says it’s smoother than the PS4 version.

It’s kind of surreal seeing the game run so smoothly on such a humble device. It was never intended as a portable game, but it’s a perfect fit for it!

We’ve spent a few months really digging into what makes the Switch hardware tick and it now runs smoother than the PlayStation 4 version, with less noticeable save points for instance.
