Over The Moon has announced that when the second part of The Fall is released later in 2017, it will now also be coming to Nintendo Switch.
The game was in development for Wii U, but as that console is on its way out, the developer switched, no pun intended, over to the new Switch console.
The Fall Part 2: Unbound aims to put players in perspectives that they’ve never experienced in a video game before. With a host of unusual characters, it explores themes of artificial intelligence, the value of personal boundaries and respecting others. Its gameplay and its story are specifically designed to make players reflect on these ideas, through the lens of a familiar Metroidvania meets Point and Click Adventure framework. The Fall Part 2: Unbound is made for players who have been waiting for the conceptual underpinning of games to catch up with their technological artistry.
“Having a robust way of perceiving the world is a pretty good starting point to talk about psychological health” says Warner, “And by making gameplay around these mechanics, we can explore a lot of fun ideas without being overly cerebral or choking the game with philosophical dialogue.”
Releasing in 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac and Linux, The Fall Part 2: Unbound is hoping to be a bold leap forward for video game storytelling.
