Great news! Charming Indie game Night in the Woods is coming to Nintendo Switch on February 1. The news comes via the developer’s Twitter account, see the tweet below.

After a successful Kickstarter the game was made by Infinite Fall, a team up of Alec Holowka (Aquaria), Scott Benson (Late Night Work Club), and Bethany Hockenberry.

Night in the Woods Switch Edition comes with the base game, the Weird Autumn DLC and the Solstice content. The game follows a young cat protagonist named Mae Borowski who drops out of college and returns to her hometown of Possum Springs, which just so happens to be a mining town going through all kinds of spooky events. The game has been praised for its clever writing, treatment of real issues like mental illness and friendship, and charming art style. Oh and did we mention that everyone in town is an adorable animal of sorts? Yeah.

Night in the Woods blends a point and click adventure with platforming and elements from visual novels. Players get into knife fights, prank neighbours and tackle existential dread in equal parts.

The game is up for three categories in the upcoming 2018 Independent Game Festival including Excellence in Narrative, Excellence in Visual Arts and the Seumas McNally Grand Prize.

The Switch version comes a year after its initial release on PC and Ps4 with a mobile release also rumoured to be in the pipeline. Be sure to check out the trailer below and revel in the game’s gorgeous visuals. You can also head over to the game’s website to check out the team’s other projects which include a ghost story (Lost Constellation) and a constellation-themed puzzle game (Longest Night).
