Two Tribes’ metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter RIVE will be better than ever on Nintendo Switch.
We’re highlighting 4 reasons why this is the Ultimate Edition of RIVE:
- Play with a friend in Copilot Mode
We’re including an exclusive way to play together, controlling the spider tank with two Joy-Cons. Making awesome use of the Switch’s built-in local multiplayer!
- HD Rumble effects let you truly feel the action
HD Rumble is a great Switch feature, and we’re making full use of it, with effects ranging from subtle bumps to extreme stereo shakes.
- More achievements: 48 and counting
We’ve created a full in-game implementation of RIVE’s achievements on Switch… Adding some extra ones for good measure.
- Loads faster, plays smoother, tweaked to perfection
We’ve gone back in to optimize our custom game engine and tweaked the entire campaign, resulting in rock solid performance and better game flow!
Pilot your spider tank as it runs, jumps and shoots its way through hordes of mechanical enemies on land, underwater, in zero gravity and even on a moving train.
RIVE is a modern ode to classic shooters, pumping megapixels at a deliciously smooth 60 frames per second, even in 1080p mode!
- Hack and control your enemies
- Upgrade your special attacks, armor and loot magnet
- Quirky story featuring robot butlers, space loot and clean teeth
- Daily Challenges and infinite Battle Arenas
- Speedrun and Single-Credit modes
- Online leaderboards for all modes and missions

RIVE for Nintendo Switch is almost done, with a new way to play together: Copilot Mode.
Hey Two Tribes! How’s RIVE for Switch coming along? You announced it back at GDC in February, and then you went silent. What’s up?!
It’s doing fine, thanks. We’re still busy, together with our development partner Engine Software, ironing out all the little kinks that come with supporting new hardware, but RIVE is already looking swell. And, yes, it runs at a silky smooth 60 frames per second.
Fantastic! I can’t wait to play your hard, fast and hilarious platformer/shooter hybrid on Nintendo’s handheld/console hybrid. Also, am I remembering it right? Did you say something new would be added to the game?
Your memory serves you well. We wanted to leverage the Switch’s built-in local multiplayer capability, and because separate Joy-Cons don’t have enough buttons for the full dual-stick RIVE experience, we came up with something we call Copilot Mode.
Copilot Mode? What’s that all about, Two Tribes?!
You control Roughshot in his Spider Tank… together. One player moves, the other attacks. And if you die, the roles are reversed. It’s a ton of fun, and you can play any and all parts of the game this way: the 6-hour campaign, highscore and speedrun missions, the super-hardcore single-credit mode, infinite battle arenas, daily challenges…
Ooh! Even though I’m an imaginary, nonexistent fan magically asking you exactly the right questions, I’m eager to try Copilot Mode. So when can I download the game that Steam users are rating 95% positive on my shiny Nintendo machine?
We’re not ready to announce a date just yet, but rest assured we’re getting close. Stay tuned for the full release announcement!

We have something sweet to announce: our twin-stick shooter/platformer RIVE is coming to Nintendo Switch this year!

Of course we’re making sure RIVE will be playable in ultra-fast and super-challenging 60 FPS glory on Nintendo Switch!

Since moving to a three man team early last year we had to rediscover how to handle things with less man-power. This means a lot of tasks have to be handled sequentially, instead of spread throughout the team. If we need a new trailer, the level designs stall for two weeks. If we decide to attend PAX or EGX with a booth, the entire project is paused for several weeks. It’s frustrating, especially since it means we can’t let you play the final game yet, but it’s our current reality and we are adamant to make RIVE the absolute best game we’ve ever created.
