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.

Teslagrad ended up on a whole bunch of platforms. But in the end, it turns out that it was most profitable on Wii U.

Speaking about why Teslagrad did so well on Wii U, Rain Games CEO Peter Wingaard Meldahl told Gamasutra:

“There was not many titles released for [the Wii U], comparatively. Indie titles actually got a good visibility on the platform.”

Meldahl noted that Teslagrad sat in each of the top two slots on Nintendo’s storefront for a couple weeks. With other systems, this would never have happened.

Rain Games on the reception of Teslagrad as part of an interview with Nintendo-Okie. According to the developer, they’re “very happy with Teslagrad‘s performance, the vast majority of reviews were very positive and the audience reception has been great.” It was also mentioned that the game is sitting at roughly 1.6 million copies in total, and it “sold surprisingly well” on Wii U “considering the smaller install base”.

Next up for Rain Games is the company’s brand new project World to the West. Regarding potential platforms, the studio would only tease the following:

We’re definitely aiming for a multi-platform release and it will definitely be released in the future- We’re keeping a bit mum on the subject of which platforms it will launch on first- there’s some new hardware coming up, too, so that’s exciting. who knows, maybe it’ll even release on that (sly look)
