No official announcement of a release date had been made for Western audiences until yesterday, but Nintendo of America's eShop listed that the game would be launching on this date prior to this confirmation. But now that we know the game launches this Friday, we've got a weekend of RPG goodness ahead of us.
The developer has also revealed that the console version of the game will contain brand new content.
The game has been compared to EarthBound for its surreal imagery and writing, and it was hugely popular on Steam when it launched back in 2020. If you need a refresher on Omori, here's a summary of the game from its Kickstarter page:
OMORI is a surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game. You must travel between two worlds, both welcoming, both concealing the same secrets. Meet new (old) people, fight new (old) enemies, explore your own memories, and uncover some hidden truths along the way (although you wish you hadn’t.) When the time comes, you can only choose one.
Which world is more real? You decide, I guess.
Omori launches on 17th June on Switch. Will you be picking it up? You can grab a physical edition of the game right here:
