Yars Rising physical

Yars Rising is now confirmed for physical release on Switch, and pre-orders are live.

Yars Rising, the upcoming Metroidvania prequel to Yars’ Revenge from WayForward, was revealed last month. This is the first time we’re hearing about a physical version. As of now there are only plans for a standard release, so there won’t be any special editions.

Here’s a bit of information about the game:

In Yars Rising, players take control of the young hacker Emi Kimura, who is hired by a mysterious patron to infiltrate the shadowy Qotech corporation. Run, jump, sneak, and hack your way through challenges to unravel layers of intrigue in this expansive sci-fi mystery. Embark on Emi’s journey to decipher the mystery of the corporation’s closely guarded secret and uncover her inexplicable bond to a far-off alien race.

Developer WayForward Technologies has built a reputation for developing franchises featuring strong characters and rich storytelling. In Yars Rising, the studio delivers a side-scrolling Metroidvania adventure with platforming action, a balance of stealth and combat gameplay, and retro-inspired mini-games.
