The digital version of RiMe will be made available directly through the Nintendo eShop for $29.99 / €34.99 / £29.99. A phusicial version, which contains the full game and a digital download code for its original score by David García Díaz, will be available at retailers for $39.99 / €44.99 / £39.99.

RiME is an emotional journey of discovery inspired by literature like The Little Prince, the films of Studio Ghibli and Ray Harryhausen, the art of Joaquín Sorolla, and the gorgeous terrain of the Mediterranean coast. As a young boy shipwrecked alone on a mysterious island, players will explore a world of natural beauty filled with wild creatures, ancient ruins and thoughtful puzzles that play with light, sound, perspective and time.

"As big fans of Nintendo, we truly appreciate our fans’ patience as Tantalus and Tequila Works continue working on RiME on Nintendo Switch; we are all committed to making sure all players get the high-quality experience they deserve," said Raúl Rubio Munárriz, CEO and creative director of Tequila Works.

Initially announced as a PS4 exclusive, developer Tequila Works later reacquired the rights to the RiMe franchise. Back in August of 2016, the Spanish developer announced a publishing deal with Grey Box and Six Foot. The game was released for PC, Xbox One and PS4 earlier this year.
