Solo Sails This Summer Onto Nintendo Switch!

Thursday 18th July, 2019 – Manchester, England: Team Gotham and Merge Games are delighted to announce that Solo: Islands of the Heart, the colourful and thought-provoking puzzle experience, is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Summer!

Solo is a game about love. About love as fuel, the force that drives us.

It is a universal feeling, but each of us experiences it in a different way. Individually, it holds different meanings depending on a variety of factors such as culture, gender, sexuality or traumas. That’s why Solo explores this theme in an introspective way, to have the players identify and reflect on their own experiences.

Solo is a contemplative puzzler set on a gorgeous and surreal archipelago. Reflect on your loving relationships by exploring contemplative, dream-like islands.

  • Reflect on love’s place in your life with a personal and introspective branching narrative.
  • Combine blocks with different properties offering multiple solutions for most puzzles.
  • Contemplate and explore a living world: take photos of the charming, colourful islands amidst tranquil tunes or play the guitar for cute creatures.

Nature and contemplation are also a huge part of Solo – you could feed the animals or just sit on a bench and take the time to think. After all, it’s up to you – Solo provides you with the opportunity to explore at your own pace.

The world is divided into archipelagos, and each archipelago is formed by small islands. Each island represents a unique puzzle the sailor will have to solve before getting to the Sleeping Totems and awakening them to answer a question about love and relationships. Using boxes, each with different properties and behaviours, the sailors can build their own paths to the Sleeping Totems on each island.

However, as is the case with love, most puzzles offer no unique solution.

Solo: Islands of the Heart releases on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One soon. The Xbox One version will be released on the 31st July, and the Nintendo Switch version will be available on the 1st August. Solo will be coming to PlayStation 4 very soon, with a date to be announced shortly. The game will be priced at £14.99/ $19.99/ €19.99.

Northgard Declares War on Nintendo Switch in September!

BORDEAUX, France – July 18, 2019 – Northgard, the acclaimed, million-selling Viking strategy game from independent French studio Shiro Games, lays siege to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Sept. 26, 2019. Alongside this announcement, Shiro is also excited to unveil a free new expansion for the PC release, Northgard: Conquest, and a tabletop game, Northgard: Uncharted Lands.

Take charge of a Viking clan from the couch or on the go with Northgard’s console-optimized control scheme, giving tacticians just as much command with a gamepad or Joy-Con as they have with a keyboard and mouse. The console release features all the content currently found in the PC version, including the Ragnarok and Relics updates, along with six clans, a lengthy campaign, cooperative and ranked competitive online modes, and more. A physical release from distributor Merge Games will also be available from retailers.

Northgard: Uncharted Lands is a brand-new board game set in the Northgard universe. It transforms the Viking clan action, resource gathering, village building, and strategic scheming from the digital title into a visually-striking tabletop experience steeped in Norse mythology.

Aimed at strategy fans of all ages and experience levels, Northgard: Uncharted Lands is designed to be played by two to five players. As with the popular PC version, players take control of their own Viking clan to explore and conquer new territories, brave the harshest of winters, fight (or befriend) mythical beings and creatures, and defeat any foe on the road to ultimate victory. Shiro Games will share further details about the board game later this year.

Northgard: Conquest is the next major free expansion for popular strategy game’s original PC version for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It features a new asynchronous, procedurally-generated campaign mode. This expansion allows players to cooperatively chart their way to victory with each player receiving tailor-made missions and objectives, ensuring each playthrough is radically different from the next. Northgard: Conquest is scheduled to debut in October 2019.

Shiro Games will be present at gamescom 2019 to showcase all of Northgard‘s upcoming projects, as well as its forthcoming cooperative action survival game Darksburg, to select media. Press attending gamescom are encouraged to schedule appointments now.

Northgard was originally released via Steam Early Access on February 22, 2017, where it quickly rose to become one of the most popular strategy games on the platform, selling more than 1 million copies. The game officially launched out of Early Access on March 7, 2018 and was one of the highest-rated PC strategy titles to be released that year, with a Metascore of 80.
