Game publisher Soedesco has announced that N.E.R.O.: Nothing Ever Remains Obscure, which previously launched on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4, is headed to Switch this October.
In the game, players assume the role of a young boy, wandering through a mysterious dreamlike world to explore the touching story of his family. The game blends exploration-style gameplay within phosphorescent environments with interactive puzzle solving.
Our friends over at Push Square praised the game's beautiful scenery in a review for the game, but noted that the puzzle gameplay actually gets in the way of the storytelling.
"N.E.R.O. intrigues as an interactive visual novel, but it fails in its attempts to be a game. The puzzles here are laughably easy, and they subsequently get in the way of the storytelling. There are some beautiful cutscenes and an interesting story here, but they're too often impeded by unenjoyable gameplay." - Push Square
It's an intriguing title, but one that seems to have a few issues bringing it down. Maybe this is one for you to consider if you're sold on the storytelling premise alone.
The game is set to launch with both physical and digital editions on 26th October.
What do you think? Are you sold on the beauty alone, or would you need to be more convinced on the gameplay side of things? Let us know below.
