Modus Games has today announced a brand new adventure game headed to Nintendo Switch in 2019 - Ary and the Secret of Seasons.
Ary and the Secret of Seasons follows the journey of a young girl named Ary across the magnificent world of Valdi (as in Vivaldi's Four Seasons, we're guessing). Ary has joined the Guardians of Seasons, an old organisation traditionally ruled by men, in a move that surprises everyone around. The reason for this? To successfully restore Valdi's seasons - a challenge which no other guardian has ever managed.
To help complete this quest, Ary can summon small spheres that act as tiny ecosystems for each season, changing the environment within to suit her needs. The spheres can be opened up three at a time, allowing Ary to jump from winter to summer to autumn in a single leap. This mechanic is used to introduce environmental puzzles and "innovative gameplay".
Sebastien Le Touze, CEO at the game's developer eXiin, and Christina Seelye, CEO of Modus Games, have commented on the announcement from Gamescom:
Le Touze: "We are excited to bring our beloved Ary to Gamescom once again, this time with our partners at Modus. We are confident those that come by to view the game will understand what makes Ary so special."
Seelye: "Our team felt an instant connection to this game, and we couldn't be happier to be publishing it next year. It's a one-of-a-kind adventure that shouldn't be missed."
We'll make sure to look out for any more news on this one as we slowly head towards 2019.
