Aspire: Ina's Tale, a fantastical side-scroller headed to Switch, is just one week away from launching on the eShop. In the run-up to its release, we're happy to share an exclusive look at the game's opening eight minutes, running on Nintendo Switch.

If you've missed our previous coverage of this one, the game has you playing as the titular Ina who finds herself trapped inside The Tower. There, she must explore the tower's chambers in search of a way out, overcoming a variety of puzzles and platforming sequences along the way.

As you can see from the footage above, it certainly looks like it has potential. Here's a feature list to tell you more:

Explore a Living Tower
Get lost in a mystical side-scrolling adventure through beautiful sprawling levels, each with their own distinct feel. Every region presents its own peculiarities to unravel.

Engaging Story
Ina's dreams shape reality while the Tower feeds. Hopes and imagination satiate its hunger. How are the two connected?

Meet the Tower Dwellers
Learn about the other denizens of the Tower as you search for the truth. Uncover their pasts, their memories, and set them free.

Control Spirits
Ina was trapped for a reason, and her powers resonate with the spirits that inhabit the Tower. Use them to manipulate objects, solve puzzles, reveal hidden passages, and navigate the environment to find your way out.

If you're interested, the game will be available on Switch on 17th December priced at $12.99 USD / £11.69. Feel free to share your thoughts on the game in the comments below.
