The Switch version of Rime isn’t being handled by Tequila Works directly. While the original team is involved in how it progresses, Tantalus is behind the actual development. Tantalus is also working on Sonic Mania for Switch.
Tequila Works told IGN:
“The Nintendo Switch version is being developed by Tantalus, the studio behind the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. We worked side by side with them to ensure the Nintendo Switch version is absolutely true to the original vision we have for RiME, and they are doing a terrific work indeed! We are really enthusiastic about Nintendo Switch and we are immensely happy about releasing RiME on that console, but it’s too early to discuss future developments. Let’s finish RiME first! :)”
Tequila Works also mentioned that “There is still a lot of development to take into consideration, but we’re working hard to get the Nintendo Switch version ready for release at the same time as the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC versions in May.” A physical release could happen, as the studio is “working with Grey Box to check on the production pricing for cartridge Switch releases. We’ll ideally have additional information before long.”
