Perp Games and Firesprite Games have confirmed when The Persistence will release at retail in North America.

Promising a brutal take on sci-fi survival-horror that integrates rogue-like design, in The Persistence you are challenged to fend for your survival on a doomed deep space colony starship.

Overrun with horrific mutants that will make their presence known as you explore, your goal is to fight your way through an ever-changing labyrinth to bring the ship back to Earth.

“Firesprite has created such an atmospheric, intense, and massively enjoyable game in The Persistence and we are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to bring it to new audiences across all formats,” explains Perp Games managing director Rob Edwards.

Firesprite Games managing director and co-founder Graeme Ankers adds: “We’re excited about bringing the game to physical formats in partnership with Perp Games. The Persistence is a totally unique survival-horror experience and we’re looking forward to seeing it hit retail shelves.”

The Persistence is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide and at retail in Europe. It will release at retail in North America on 29th September 2020.
