Figment Nintendo Switch

The Switch eShop can add another intriguing release to its 2017 line-up, with confirmation that Figment is coming to the store. Developed by Bedtime Digital Games, its twist is that it's an action-adventure title (with a mix of puzzle-solving and combat) that is also a musical.

Below you can see the developer's own description, along with a new musical trailer produced to highlight its quirky style.

Figment is a whimsical adventure set in the recesses of the human mind. Nightmarish creatures have arrived, spreading fear wherever they go. As Dusty, the mind's former voice of courage, you'll fight the nightmares and solve an array of puzzles. As Dusty gets back to his old self, he can help the mind to face its fears.

But Figment is not just a game; it's also a fully-fledged musical, performed by the game's cast of nightmarish characters as Dusty traverses around the game world. Figment's latest trailer takes the form of a music video and showcases The Plague Song - both in-game, and as performed by Støj Snak - a.k.a. composer Niels Højgaard Sørensen - in the studio.

It's due out on PC in September and is set for Switch this year; we reckon this is certainly one to follow closely.
