No More Robots and RageSquid have teamed up with Sold Out to release Descenders at retail on Nintendo Switch.

“We’re extremely excited to work with Sold Out on the retail releases for Descenders,” enthuses No More Robots company director Mike Rose.

“Our players have been begging us for a physical release for a while now, so getting to work with Sold Out on a worldwide retail release is essentially fulfilling a long-standing dream for all of us.”

Sold Out CEO Garry Williams adds: “Descenders is an awesome fast-paced game which players love on digital platforms, so we’re thrilled to be partnering with No More Robots to release the physical editions on PS4 and Nintendo Switch at retail.”

Descenders looks 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.

Descenders will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Spring 2020.
