Tantalus, the developer behind Twilight Princess HD, is now confirmed to also be working on the Switch version of Rime. They are handling work for Sonic Mania on the Switch as well.
Developer Tequila Works told IGN:
“The Nintendo Switch version is being developed by Tantalus, the studio behind the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. We worked side by side with them to ensure the Nintendo Switch version is absolutely true to the original vision we have for RiME, and they are doing a terrific work indeed! We are really enthusiastic about Nintendo Switch and we are immensely happy about releasing RiME on that console, but it’s too early to discuss future developments. Let’s finish RiME first! :)”[/.quote]
They also mentioned that they hope to have the Switch version ready alongside the other versions for a May release, and that they’ll try to make a physical release happen for the Switch version.
