RiME [Nintendo Switch] - £32.99 - Coolshop

RiME is a much anticipated upcoming game. It garnered some bad press due to it's high price tag [£10 more on the Switch than other consoles], but pre-order prices are coming down to a more equal level. I'd say £32.99 for a physical version on Switch is good. It will also include an exclusive code for a download of the official soundtrack*. Here's what the game is about:

"A land of discovery stretches out before you. Explore the beautiful yet rugged world of RiME, a single-player puzzle adventure. In RiME, you play as a young boy who has awakened on a mysterious island after a torrential storm. You see wild animals, long-forgotten ruins and a massive tower that beckons you to come closer. Armed with your wits and a will to overcome-and the guidance of a helpful fox-you must explore the enigmatic island, reach the tower's peak, and unlock its closely guarded secrets.

Explore - Discover the mysterious island at your own pace. Interact with wildlife, search for hidden items or simply take in the sights and sounds.

Solve Puzzles - Make your way through the ancient ruins and its hidden marvels by solving puzzles with sound, light and shadow projection, perspective, platforming, and even time manipulation.

Find Secrets - Dive deeper into the boy's backstory by uncovering dozens of secrets and collectables.

Be Enchanted - Take in a beautiful world inspired by the wonders of the Mediterranean through a fusion of captivating music and colour."

They didn't reject it, the developer decided to buy back the IP rights so they could go multiplat.

Nice cover

It will be £29.99 on digital however. The producers lowered the price on digital due to the backlash over the disparity in pricing between consoles.

Of course, £32.99 may well be a good price for those interested in the physical edition with the soundtrack and the ability to trade in/sell at a later date, so heat!

Preordered. Thank you! A beautiful looking game, and only a few quid more for the the physical edition with the soundtrack!

Really looking forward to playing this game, it looks wonderful.

Note for the Switch it is estimated Q3 not the same date as the PS4/XBOX One version

Or if you go via the US eShop and prepaid credit, you can get it for just over £23

I knew it was delayed but have had trouble locating when it's been pushed back too. Thank you though

Switch release rumoured to be Oct/Sept. Looks a good game.

At an estimated 8-10 hours gameplay and little replayabilty (no multiplayer or DLC) this will have to come down a fair bit more before I bite.
It does look really good, but not that good.

Thats a lie. They basically did nothing for years just eating up Sony's money so when Sony found out they were basically scamming them they took their dev kits and stopped their funding.

Looks cool but maybe a little light on content/challenge compared to Zelda and the like?

BTW: Voted hot, this is a good price for a switch game

What did you have in mind with "and the like"? Either way, it's too early to say.

Well, it's 32.99, which is exactly £10 more than the lowest price right now. So it still seems a bummer...

Is this just a poor man's Zelda? Or is there more to this than the trailer is letting on?

Just got 9/10 from Edge magazine for a review of the ps4 version. As long as the switch version runs well this should get good scores too.

If you bought a switch expecting 1080P 60 frames a second games, you bought the wrong console.

Emm, games on the Switch do run/will run 1080p/60 - Splatoon 2 and ARMS two examples.

It can't run indie games at 1080p yet people are expecting ports of current gen games like RDR2 and Destiny 2 on Switch. Lol.

Yes I understand this. My point is people who picked up a switch aren't or shouldn't be expecting all games to be 1080/60. So it should come as no shock this is 720.
