Thunder Lotus has announced that Spiritfarer is now available on Nintendo Switch, news that was shared in today’s Indie World presentation.
In creating Spiritfarer, the developer has looked to deliver an experience that is both entertaining and emotionally moving.
You play as Stella, ferrymaster to the deceased, and, after building a boat to explore the world, must befriend and care for the spirits that you encounter before finally releasing them into the afterlife.
That will see you farm, mine, fish, harvest, cook, and craft your way across mystical seas, with the chance for a second player to join you as Daffodil the cat in cooperative play.
“I will say that it’s been pretty tough keeping this launch under the radar!” admits the game’s creative director Nicolas Guérin.
“We took what is by far our biggest, most ambitious production yet, and decided to up the ante by releasing Spiritfarer simultaneously on almost every system under the sun. Our fans have been so patient, waiting for us just to say ‘when’. Well, I’m happy to tell them: the time is now! Spiritfarer is a game that’s near and dear to our hearts, so we hope you’ll set sail with us.”
Spiritfarer is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide priced at £23.79 ($29.99).
