After arriving on mobile earlier this year to heaps of cozy praise, studios 7LEVELS and Afterburn have announced that the track-laying train puzzler Railbound is coming to Switch on 1st December, 2022.
For levels of comfort, Railbound has it all. This is a game in which you help two dogs go on a train journey by connecting tracks across various simplistically cartoon landscapes, all accompanied by chilled-out tunes from the team behind equally cozy titles Golf Peaks and inbento. Dogs. Trains. Cartoons. Puzzles. We can feel the thick jumper and fluffy slippers on already.
Looking at the above trailer, it is very clear that this was a title built for a mobile capacity. The price point of £11.49 / 12.99€ might be somewhat off-putting in that case as, while the game has been specifically adapted to make the most of the Switch features, the 150+ levels may feel like stations on a short stopping service.
This being said, there is no denying that the game is nice to look at, with puzzles that are sure to keep our heads a-scratching on the go. For more information about Railbound's features as well as some extra screens of the track linking in action, check out the following from 7LEVELS:
