Team17 and Navegante, with collaboration from Bromio, have signed a new partnership that will see the award-winning games label publish Greak: Memories of Azur on Nintendo Switch.

This side-scrolling adventure game has been created with traditional hand-drawn animation, and stars three siblings: Greak, Adara, and Raydel.

Greak is the smaller brother of three characters, who belong to a magical race called the Courine. After the Urlag invade their lands, the Courine start to flee from their homes.

Once he reunites with his brother and sister, the three siblings set out to escape the lands of Azur by building a zeppelin piece-by-piece – a quest that will require that you put their unique abilities to use.

“Greak: Memories of Azur is a real labour of love for everybody involved with Navegante and our friends from Bromio; we want to create a game that excels artistically and exceeds the players’ expectations,” explain Navegante Entertainment co-founders Rodrigo Fernandez and Gustavo Alcala.

“Partnering with Team17 is a dream come true for us, since their track record in nurturing and launching indie titles is incredible, so we’re extremely excited to fulfil our vision for Greak: Memories of Azur with them.”

Team17 head of publishing Max Everingham adds: “We’re very pleased to add Greak: Memories of Azur to our rapidly growing and compelling games portfolio.

“As soon as we saw the visual style and entered the world of Azur, we were instantly absorbed into the universe that Navegante is creating, and we’re sure that our audiences will enjoy the Metroidvania journey just as much as we are.”

Greak: Memories of Azur will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
