Arietta of Spirits popped up on our radar during the recent Summer Game Fest / E3 week, with the game featuring in Day Two of the Guerrilla Collective Showcase. It now has its Switch eShop release details – a demo is due to arrive today (13th August), with the full game releasing on 20th August priced at €19,99 / $19.99 / £17.99; pre-orders up to 19th August will have a 10% discount.
With a top-down view and some nice chunky pixels, it’s an adventure title that promises plenty of exploration and storytelling; you can see some of its official pitch below.
– Explore a mysterious island with lush forests, murky caverns and dark secrets
– Beautiful retro-styled pixel graphics and inspiring original soundtrack
– Meet fascinating characters and discover the deep lore
– Fight a wide range of enemies in reaction based combat
– Easy to approach game mechanics, suitable for everyone
Red Art Games is also selling physical copies on its own store here, though they’re currently listed for distribution in Q4 this year – there’s a standard edition at €34,99 and a collector’s ‘Red Edition’ for €59,99. That Red Edition includes a soundtrack, steelbook and poster, as you can see below.
Let us know if you’re planning to give the Arietta of Spirits demo a try over the weekend!
