VirtuaVerse getting a physical release on Switch
Posted on November 22, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch
If you’ve been looking for a physical version of VirtuaVerse to your Switch collection, you’re now in luck. Limited Run Games has announced that it’s planning a boxed version as part of its distribution line.
VirtuaVerse first appeared on Switch just over a year ago. Thus far, it has only been offered a digital download via the eShop.
Here’s a bit of information about the game:
In a future not too far away, one Artificial Intelligence has prevailed over all other AIs and their governments. Society has migrated to a permanently integrated reality connected to a single neural network that continuously optimizes people’s experiences by processing personal data.
Nathan, an outsider still refusing to comply with the new system, makes a living off the grid as a smuggler of modded hardware and cracked software. Geared with his custom headset, he is among the few that can still switch AVR off and see reality for what truly is.
He shares an apartment in the city with his girlfriend Jay, a talented AVR graffiti writer whose drones have been bit-spraying techno-color all over the augmented space in the city.
Waking up one morning, Nathan discovers that Jay disappeared overnight, but not before leaving a cryptic message on their bathroom mirror. Having accidentally broken his custom headset, Nathan is now disconnected and determined to find out what happened to Jay, but he soon finds himself tangled up in an unexpected journey involving Jay’s hacker group and a guild of AVR technomancers.
Travelling around the world, he’ll have to deal with hardware graveyards, digital archeology, tribes of cryptoshamans, and virtual reality debauchery.
Pre-orders for the physical version of VirtuaVerse open on November 29, 2022 through Limited Run Games and the company’s Amazon store.
