Sold Out, No More Robots and RageSquid have confirmed a release date for Descenders on Nintendo Switch.

The developer has looked to deliver “extreme downhill freeriding for the modern era.”

That will see you freeride around procedurally generated worlds where mistakes have real consequences, choosing to align themselves with one of three teams: Enemy, Arboreal or Kinetic.

Team Enemy is the die-hard, trick-frenzy crowd, Team Arboreal like to perform their tricks off-road, while Team Kinetic is speed freaks that turn to high-octane methods.

The freestyle bike controls let you control every subtle movement of your rider, thanks to an in-depth physics system.

That will see you push your rider for massive scores and combos, with the ultimate challenge seeing you survive the game in a single run to reach the ranks of the legendary Descenders.

“We can’t wait for Nintendo Switch players to gear up and join the ranks of the legendary Descenders this November,” enthuses Sold Out marketing director Sarah Hoeksma.

“Partnering with No More Robots on this fantastic game has been a pleasure and, with the Nintendo Switch version, we’re excited for players to head out on high-speed runs and show off their skills at home or on the go.”

Descenders will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 6th November 2020.
