Windwaker-Like Rime Gets an Official Release Date Across All Platforms, Including the Switch
Tequila Works‘ puzzle adventure game Rime has definitely had its ups and downs during development. After reacquiring the rights to the game, and with some help from co-developers Six Foot and publisher Grey Box Games, Rime finally has an official release date across multiple platforms.
The puzzle adventure game is being compare to games such as Ico and The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker. Rime was originally pitched to Microsoft to be an Xbox One exclusive, but the company turned them down on funding the development. Soon after, an agreement was reached with Sony for the game to become a PlayStation 4 exclusive. The game was announced back in 2013 and had Sony listed as the publisher. Not much was heard of the game until last year when Tequila Works announced that they had reacquired the rights to the game, pulling away from a PS4 exclusive launch. With their new publisher, Grey Box Games, Rime was set to release across multiple platforms.
RiME will launch on May 26, for PS4, Xbox One and PC! The Nintendo Switch edition arrives this summer. Good times! https://t.co/AeYpTeizXQ
