Out of the blue, the appropriately-named developer Giant Squid, in partnership with independent publisher 505 Games, have announced the 2016 title ABZÛ will make a splash on Switch on 29th November for $19.99.
Several members of the development team previously worked on the highly-praised 2012 PlayStation exclusive Journey. This includes the director Matt Nava (also the artistic mind behind Flower) and two-time BAFTA-winning composer Austin Wintory, previously known for his work on The Banner Saga series.
ABZÛ is described as a meditative oceanic adventure that immerses players in a vibrant underwater world filled with mystery and plenty of aquatic life. You take control of a diver - with your mission to change the world around you for the better. Below is the full description:
Playing as the Diver, you'll discover hundreds of unique species based on real creatures and form a powerful connection with the abundant sea life. But this underwater world can be dangerous, broken and toxic - and your mission is to unlock the mysteries of the deep and change the world around you for the better.
ABZÛ is told in the form of mythology and folklore, while capturing the dream-like feeling of underwater exploration. The name is derived from ancient Sumerian language; AB, meaning water, and ZÛ, meaning to know: ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
Tell us if you'll be diving into this underwater adventure when it is released at the end of this month.
