Late last year, PC and PS4 gamers were treated to an surreal rhythm experience when Thumper asked them to pilot a metallic scarab down a highway of intimidating, abstract set pieces. The game is as bizarre as it is intense -- but timing movements to the game's fast-paced soundtrack and be incredibly satisfying, too. Soon, you'll be able to attain that satisfaction on the go: the game's developer has announced that the Nintendo Switch version will be available on the eShop in just two weeks.

Naturally, the Nintendo Switch version of Thumper won't have the virtual reality mode found on the PS4 and PC version of the game, but the developer says it will run at a smooth 60fps in both 720p in portable mode and 1080p on televisions. The game also boasts support for the Switch's HD Rumble feature, which promises a more nuanced force feedback experience than on other platforms. The game will be available for Nintendo Switch users on May 18th. There's no word yet for the promised Xbox One version, but if you can't stand the wait, you can always pick up the soundtrack on Vinyl.
