Cytus Boxart

Earlier this year in January, PM Studios and acttil announced a physical and digital version of Cytus Alpha (or 'Cytus α') would be coming to the Switch in North America this April. Over the past few days, there have been reports the physical version had been delayed, and it's now been confirmed.

Instead of arriving later this month, this version of the game will arrive in this region on 14th May. The digital version will still be released on 25th April.
