Annapurna Interactive and Geometric Interactive have announced that COCOON is coming to Nintendo Switch next year.
This “unique take on the puzzle adventure genre” is the next game from Jeppe Carlsen, who was the lead gameplay designer for Limbo and Inside.
Offering the chance to set out on an adventure across worlds within worlds – each existing within an orb that you can carry on your back – you will need to wrap your head around the world-leaping gameplay mechanic to combine, manipulate and rearrange them to solve puzzles and unravel the truth behind a cosmic mystery.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Alien Machinery: Interact with alien environments and biomechanical devices left behind by an ancient civilization. Journey through unique and diverse biomes, from industrial structures to massive organic caverns, and discover how they are connected to one another.
- Orb Abilities: Each orb has an ability that can be unlocked, thereby turning the orb into a unique tool for you to utilize within other worlds. Use these abilities to uncover hidden pathways and objects, fire projectiles to trigger switches, and more.
- Monstrous Guardians: Mighty guardians protect every world, and you must face them in fierce battles. Each fight is unique and requires you to master new and satisfying mechanics.
COCOON will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
