The Fall out now on Switch

Acclaimed adventure, action, puzzle solving side scroller released with launch discount.

Sci-fi adventure, The Fall, is now available on the Nintendo Switch via the eShop. In The Fall, players take on the role of ARID (Armoured Robotics Interface Device), the artificial intelligence within a high-tech combat suit, whose human pilot has been rendered unconscious. It’s up to players to take control of the suit and drag his lifeless body towards help through the game’s brooding, atmospheric environments. Seamlessly integrating its narrative and interactive components, The Fall combines expansive Metroidvania-esque exploration with classic adventure-game puzzle solving. The game deftly sets the scene for its recent sequel, The Fall Part 2: Unbound, telling its own pulse-quickening and thought-provoking story in the process.

The Nintendo Switch edition of the game runs at a resolution of 1080p at 60fps when docked and 720p at 60fps when in handheld or tabletop mode and includes a series of lighting and rendering improvements, as well as control, gameplay, and UX enhancements carried over from its sequel.

The Fall

Creative Director and Over The Moon founder John Warner said:

“We’ve had a lot of requests to bring The Fall to the Nintendo Switch; it’s a great fit for the system. The Fall lays the thematic and interactive foundations for The Fall Part 2: Unbound. I can’t wait for players to dive in and gain some more insight into the world and ideas underpinning the series.”

The Fall is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop, priced at £7.99 / €8.99 / $9.99. There’s also a 30% discount running for the first 14 days. You can also pick up The Fall on Steam, where it’s received very positive reviews, as well as PS4 and Xbox One.
