Backbeat from development studio Ichigoichie is a musical puzzle game scheduled to be released on PC later this year. Now we also have confirmation that a Nintendo Switch version is in the works! Watch the trailer above, or read the description below for an idea of how it plays.

Stephanie “Watts” Watson, an aspiring bassist, bounced from audition to audition never finding music that really resonated with her, that is, until she discovered the magic of funk. Caught up in the groove, she recruits a group of hometown amateurs to take on art school darlings La Tormenta at the Battle of the Bands.


  • Rewindable, multilinear beat-based environment puzzles
  • Player-controlled songs created from your movement choices
  • Real life jam band music rules and tricks for maximizing your score
  • Character-driven story set in 1990s suburban America through 40 levels of strategic madness

We don’t have an exact release date for the game just yet, but hopefully it will be around the same time as the PC release. Until then, check out the awesome early-Internet-inspired official Backbeat web site for more info.
