This, dear readers, is the trailer that finally made me understand the hype around RiME; it feels very much like a Legend of Zelda game made by Team Ico and Studio Ghibli, and that dear readers, ticks all of my boxes. Check out the reveal trailer above to see what I’m talking about.
RiME, as you might’ve guessed, is a puzzle adventure game centering around the adventures of a shipwrecked young boy. The island, the ocean’s waves carry him to is ethereal and largely relies on the ephemeral to solve its secrets; the press release explains, “players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time.” Sign me up for a one way ticket, I say!
The game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One May 26th. It will also be available for Nintendo Switch later this Summer. Interestingly, the three aforementioned platform versions will retail at the price of £29.99 but on the Nintendo Switch it’ll set you back by about 10 more quid of our finest monopoly money.
Publisher Grey Box have been a touch evasive about why at present but we’ll be sure to bring you further details as they are released. You can check out the official website here.
