The Touryst

Digital Foundry is featuring The Touryst for its latest technical analysis. Though it’s not as highly publicized as Nintendo’s own titles, Shin’en has churned out a very impressive Switch game.

Here are the main points from the analysis:

The Touryst, Shin’en’s recent Switch eShop game, has received an update. Version 1.1 implements a trio of fixes.

Below are the full patch notes:

System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: November 21, 2019
Developer: Shin’en
Publisher: Shin’en


The Touryst is the most refreshing vacation anyone could ask for, complete with surf, sun, and decaying monuments left by a mysterious long-lost civilization. Shin’en has made a name for itself by offering high speed and impeccable visuals and performance on Switch through titles like the Fast Racing series, but with The Touryst, the company is taking a distinctly more laid-back approach. Gone are the high-speed antics that defined the studio’s other works – instead, The Touryst is all about taking it slow, playing some sports on the beach, and then kicking back and soaking up the sun. It’s relaxation pure and simple, packed with a bountiful variety of gameplay ideas and wrapped up in a stunningly gorgeous presentation.

The Touryst, Shin’en’s newest game for Switch, arrived today on the Switch eShop. For a look at some footage, view the video below.

Nearly three years after FAST RMX launched with Switch, Shin’en is back with its next original project. Revealed during the Indie World Showcase in August, The Touryst releases on November 21.

Rather than racing we’ve seen with the FAST series or something like platforming akin to the Jett Rocket franchise, Shin’en is taking a different approach with its latest game. The Touryst is a true adventure experience with plenty of areas to explore, an original story, and more.

We recently spoke with Manfred Linzner from Shin’en to learn more about The Touryst and what fans can expect. Read our full interview below for more on the project’s origins, its gameplay and visual style, developing for Switch, and more.

Shin’en will release The Touryst for Switch via the eShop on November 21, the studio just confirmed. Pricing is set at $19.99 / €19.99.

The Touryst, an adventure title, is Shin’en’s second original Switch game following FAST RMX. It was revealed during the Indie World Showcase back in August.
