Previously released on VR platforms, Elevator...to the Moon! Turbo Champion's Edition is a sci-fi comedy set in an elevator that - true to its title - goes to the moon, and it arrives this March on Switch courtesy of Roccat Game Studio and Arcade Distillery.
This elevator belongs to the 'President of the World', a particularly demanding individual who wishes for you to repair the malfunctioning contraption. Of course, it's your choice whether you listen to the Arnold Schwarzenegger-soundalike or ignore his screaming; through the course of the game he'll give you increasingly unreasonable orders which you're free to follow or not.
Here are some more details from the blurb:
You are a space cadet, rudely commanded by the President of the World to "Liberate" a Moon Elevator, evoking the wrath of the world's most powerful AI. Will you crack under pressure trying to hold this broken Space Elevator together?
Obey! The ridiculous demands of President of the World, Doug-Slater Roccmeier, solving head scratching puzzles or...
Disobey! And cause hilarious havoc, or find your own sweet spot. Each way of playing has its own advantages and outcomes as you navigate through a plot with more twists and turns than a twisty-turny thing! It’s up to you, intrepid elevator person, to blaze your own altitudinal path...to the moon!
The Switch edition of this VR original gets some new motion-based pointer controls, and a bonus mini-game, entitled 'Bat Batty Bats'. Ahem. It looks to be a pretty surreal ride, and we dearly hope that we're told to GET TO DA CHOPPER! at some point.
We're intrigued to see how this VR experience translates to the handheld - with whispers that Nintendo are planning moves into the VR space, possibly via a low-tech Labo route, perhaps we'll be seeing more VR originals coming to Switch in the not-to-distant future.
So, you're trapped in a lift with only the President for company - what do you do? Let us know in the comments.
