Untold Tales, Studio Voyager and IguanaBee have announced What Lies In The Multiverse will release on Nintendo Switch early next year.
This story-driven, 2D dramatic comedy adventure comes packed “with hilarious, cartoonish hijinks” as well as “mature and deep themes like death, envy, and obsession.”
When a gifted boy – known as The Kid – finds himself zapped into a new universe, he meets Everett, a sarcastic, eccentric and mysterious scientist who possesses the power to shift dimensions.
After bonding over their mutual curiosity for parallel worlds, they set out to investigate the unknown. Together they head to a strange island where they will discover answers about Everett’s past and the universe, while being hunted by old acquaintances who want to put a stop to their dimension shifting shenanigans.
The publisher has broken down the game’s features as below:
- Seamless Transformations: Would you like to change the game world on the fly? Now you can! Can’t reach a ledge? Bam! Switch worlds mid-air. Afraid of sliding around an icy environment? Alternate to another universe for firmer ground! Just be careful when messing with gravity…
- Diverse Worlds: Embark on a journey across a variety of gorgeous pixel-art worlds, each offering something unique. Explore temples, towns, harbors, the wilderness and more as you race to unlock the secrets of the Multiverse.
- Colorful Cast of Characters: Meet a bunch of quirky but compelling characters such as Everett, your eventual genius companion. Picture a sarcastic, eccentric Albert Einstein. Then there’s EZ, a mysterious figure everyone fondly remembers but can’t describe. And of course, ZENITH, a group of enigmatic and shadowy figures always breathing down your neck.
- A Deeper Narrative: While staying true to its light-hearted nature, the story’s poignancy builds as you progress. A rollercoaster of laughter, joy, and sorrow awaits.
What Lies In The Multiverse will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in early 2022.
