Sayonara Wild Hearts

Simogo has developed a number of acclaimed titles, including the Wii U game Year Walk. Its latest project, Sayonara Wild Hearts, recently debuted on a Switch close to a year after it was announced at The Game Awards.

Not too long ago, we spoke with the team at Simogo to discuss Sayonara Wild Hearts in-depth. The studio discussed how the backstory behind the name, wanting to make a game about the flow of music instead of the beats, and more.

Here’s our full discussion:

Thanks to iam8bit, Sayonara Wild Hearts will be seeing a physical version. Pre-orders are up on the company’s website here.

Sayonara Wild Hearts will have 5,000 physical units produced. All copies come with an embroidered logo patch.

The physical version of Sayonara Wild Hearts will ship in Q1 2020.

Sayonara Wild Hearts, first announced for Switch at The Game Awards in December, was playable at PAX East 2019. Watch some footage captured at the event below.

During The Game Awards, Simogo revealed Sayonara Wild Hearts for Switch. It’s a new rhythm game that will be published by Annapurna. A release is planned for 2019.

Here’s a trailer:

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In the latest video, Kit and Krysta complete their playthough of Year Walk. Check it out below.

When you first pick up Year Walk, “peaceful” and “serene” are two words that may pop into your head. You find yourself in a quaint, Swedish forest in the winter, with snowflakes falling, the wind gently whispering, and ‘barely there’ atmospheric tones.

The odd sense of warm security you feel in a chilly setting is misplaced, however. Despite the calming, ambiguous way Year Walk opens, your character’s goal to eventually see into the future by partaking in a ‘vision quest’ takes a few disconcerting turns.

What I’m trying to say is that this game is going to rustle your jimmies.

The file size for Simogo and Dakko Dakko’s Wii U release Year Walk is in. In order to download the game, you’ll need nearly 400MB of free space. The game launches next week on the Wii U eShop.
