Switch players won't have to pay more for 'Rime' after all

But you'll still have to wait a bit longer to get it on Nintendo's hardware.

Tequila Works

Back in March, fans of Nintendo's latest console and open-world puzzle adventure games got some tough news: Tequila Works' highly anticipated indie title Rime would cost extra and arrive later on the Switch. Luckily for cash-strapped players who want to explore Rime's island environments on the go, a digital copy of the Switch port will now carry the same $29.99 price tag as the PS4 and Xbox One editions.

According to a blog post from publisher Grey Box, "additional development, manufacturing, and publishing costs" drove up the price on the Switch version, but they're hoping to make a bargain to keep prices in line across all platforms. Physical copies of the Nintendo version will still cost a cool $10 more due to the realities of putting out a packaged product, but Grey Box will also include a free code for David García's complete original soundtrack -- something that will also be sold separately online as a $10 download.

Now for the bad news: although Rime will arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC later this month on May 26th, there's still no official release date for either the physical or digital Switch versions. For that, Grey Box says they hope to make another Switch-related announcement "shortly."
