Indie developer NamaTakahashi has revealed that his NES-inspired puzzle-platformer ElecHead is coming to Switch this summer! The game was shown off during the latest Indie World presentation, where a little robot called Elec must bright light back to the world.

The little fella is absolutely adorable, and the game looks utterly charming. Wherever Elec walks, the platform lights up, meaning the section goes from a blue-ish grey to a sunny yellow. The game has been out on Steam and since last October, and our friends at Eurogamer heaped praise on it last year in their review, where writer Christian Donlan said that "ElecHead is supremely clever, then, but it's also always more than just clever. It's fantastic, basically." And it looks the part, too:

We can't miss this one, then! It's got the look and feel of Mega Man, and it's clearly following in Shovel Knight's footsteps by taking the simplicity of an NES platformer and turning it on its head.

We've got all of the details of this dinky-little game three-hour game straight from the Nintendo eShop:

In a world enshrouded by darkness, deep inside a factory, the light of hope still shines.
ElecHead has you play as Elec, a small robot on a mission to bring light back to the world.
When Elec touches walls, floors, platforms, switches, and more, he makes electricity run through them, activating them.
He can also detach and throw his head to trigger things remotely, but be careful: if he doesn't get his head back within ten seconds, he will shut down.
Elec will have to use his head, literally and figuratively, to find a way out of this trap-ridden facility.

Key features:

- Simple and intuitive controls
There’s a limited amount of gimmicks, but it’s up to the player to find the different ways to use them to solve puzzles in the different levels
Minimalist graphics with a retro-feel that lets the player focus on the game mechanics
Playtime: 2-3 hours, even busy people can play (Hidden rooms or secrets to discover)
No in-game text or tutorial: can be played by anyone around the globe, intuitive gameplay

It's the absolutely perfect game for the Switch, and if fellow indie developers behind hits like VVVVVV and Celeste were already heaping praise on it back when it was a PC exclusive, we'd do well to check this one out.

ElecHead doesn't have a firm release date yet, but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for it so it can light up our world sometime this summer. Will you be picking this one up? Let us know!
