Last July, Japanese magazine Famitsu revealed Flyhigh Works would publish a port of the mobile rhythm game Cytus on the Switch, under the new name of Cytus Alpha (or 'Cytus α'). It has now been confirmed the title will arrive in North America this April in both physical and digital formats. The initial release of the retail version will include a special CD, including music from a chapter of the game.
As previously noted, Cytus was originally developed by Rayark - the studio behind VOEZ and Deemo. We enjoyed both of these titles, awarding them 8/10 and 9/10 respectively in our reviews. The new rhythm game features futuristic graphics, more than 200 songs (new and old) and touch controls. There's also online multiplayer, where players can engage in score battles. Below are the key features, courtesy of the official PR:
- Music: More than 200 tracks from the original release with over 400 Charts, and additional unreleased songs, including exclusive songs from Cytus Ω, which are available in Chapter Ω! and collaborations from Chapter Ω!
- Visuals: Mesmerizing futuristic graphics with a new UI developed specifically for Nintendo Switch!
- Story: An in-depth data system for diving into even deeper story engagement!
- Difficulty: Easy to hard modes to satisfy beginners and veteran rhythm game players alike, and various musical tastes such as pop, jazz, trance, hardcore and more!
