Developer inkle has announced that their BAFTA nominated narrative adventure title, 80 Days, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 1st of this year. The game, which originally came out in 2014, is a retelling of the classic Jules Verne novel, and combines elements of adventure games with board game mechanics. Additionally, inkle's newest title, Heaven's Vault, will also be making its way to the platform in 2020.
80 Days has been fully optimized for Nintendo Switch, with every part of the user interface redesigned or reconsidered for play with either Jon-Con controllers or touch screen functionality. It also has resizable text for comfortable reading in both handheld and docked modes. This definitive version includes all of the content incrementally added to the adventure since 80 Days' initial release: find the lost city of Atlantis, join a North Pole expedition, go over Niagara Falls, team up with notorious jewel thief the Black Rose, and even journey to the moon!
You are archeologist Aliya Elasra, on a mission with your robot assistant Six to track down a missing academic who has left a trail of ancient relics in his wake. Sail to the far reaches of the Nebula to solve a historical mystery that can only be understood by translating the long-lost language of Aliya's ancestors — a massive linguistic puzzle that will reveal the region's earliest secrets to those who manage to crack it.
But your translations could be wrong, and you'll never know. Heaven's Vault adapts with a story that seamlessly, fluidly reflects your choices — a story that will be different for every person who plays it.
