RIVE by Two Tribes Coming to Nintendo Switch

RIVE by Two Tribes Coming to Nintendo Switch

Developer Two Tribes is bringing their best and last, twin-stick shooter/platformer RIVE, to Nintendo Switch this year!

The news comes after the admission in 2016 that their Nintendo strategy was in flux. Now, Two Tribes can finally reveal what they’ve been up to: RIVE was bumped from Wii U to Nintendo Switch, where it’ll be playable in ultra-fast and super-challenging 60 FPS glory.

They are developing RIVE on Nintendo Switch together with Engine Software. Details about the game’s exclusive Nintendo Switch expansion, as well as a release date, will be announced later on.

RIVE by Two Tribes Coming to Nintendo Switch

RIVE is a great fit for Nintendo Switch. It was always intended as an explosive ode to the action games of the early nineties. Nostalgic, yet thoroughly modern. And the devs feel that Nintendo Switch, too, is all about bringing the experience from our youth, playing deep and skill-based games together, to the current day.

RIVE (meaning ‘to tear apart violently’) is filled to the brim with references to our favorite games, with spectacular set-pieces, and humor, via the game’s main characters. Space scavenger Roughshot and robot butler DLL are both voiced by the talented Mark Dodson, of Star Wars and Gremlins fame.

One reviewer appropriately called the game “a heart attack inducing crazy nostalgia rollercoaster”. It was received very well on Steam and PlayStation 4, with a 95% Steam user rating.
