Exclusively released on Apple Arcade in 2020, the technicolor side-scrolling adventure, Little Orpheus, is soon making its way over to Switch. Developer The Chinese Room and publisher Secret Mode have announced that Little Orpheus will be available from the eShop starting on September 13th, 2022. Pricing details have not been shared. More info can be found via the press release below.
The year is 1962 and NASA is trying to put a man on the moon. In a remote corner of Siberia, a Soviet cosmonaut is heading in the other direction. Ivan Ivanovich is dropped into an extinct volcano in his exploration capsule, Little Orpheus, to explore the centre of the Earth. He promptly vanishes. Three years later he emerges claiming to have saved the world.
Join Ivan as he explores lost civilizations, undersea kingdoms, prehistoric jungles and lands beyond imagination. Little Orpheus is a fantastical side-scrolling adventure game for casual players and seasoned adventure fans alike, inspired by classic movies such as Flash Gordon, Sinbad and The Land that Time Forgot.
This definitive edition of the multi-award-winning Apple Arcade hit from master storyteller The Chinese Room is rebuilt and remastered for the big screen with hi-res textures, new animations, and enhanced graphics and effects. Little Orpheus for PC and consoles also features the bonus ninth episode - A Rush of Onion to the Head - and the Lost Recordings Mode from the original release.
Following the delay earlier this year, The Chinese Room and Secret Mode carefully evaluated the content within Little Orpheus considering wider world events. We are confident that the game does not contain material that should offend or harm and that Little Orpheus can release without any changes to its content.
“After its successful launch on Apple Arcade back in June 2020, we are proud to help bring the complete and remastered Little Orpheus experience to PC and consoles,” said James Schall, Director of Publishing at Secret Mode. “We look forward to players joining us in this award-winning adventure as we return to the mid-twentieth century and cast our eyes downwards in search of fresh wonders lying beneath our feet.”
