Ascend from the depths of a neon nightmare on Jan. 17th, 2019 with Octahedron on Switch

London, UK (December 14, 2018) – Square Enix Collective® is pleased to have another game joining its Nintendo Switch™ line-up as vibrant platformer Octahedron: Transfixed Edition launches on January 17, 2019.

Soon to be available on the go, Octahedron launched on Steam, Xbox™ One and PlayStation™ 4 in March this year. A free demo for the game will be available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch from December 28 and will be available for pre-purchase with a 25% discount for 20 days (28th Dec – 16th Jan).

Octahedron is a psychedelic neon action platformer in which the player defies gravity by pulling platforms from thin air, while surfing through its levels to a driving beat. The game's soundtrack, a vibrant array of uplifting and atmospheric tunes, from chiptune trance over synthwave to progressive house, has been turning heads since its original release! It features music by Chipzel, André Sobota, Monomirror, and others. With subtly evolving rhythm elements, Octahedron encourages players to get into the flow of its hypnotizing beats.

Phil Elliott, director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix Ltd, was unavailable for a quote as he has been fully absorbed into the world of Veetragoul, and does not currently have a mouth because his head has been replaced by an Octahedron.

"I'm super excited to be bringing Octahedron to the Nintendo Switch! It is such an amazing fit for the platform. I spent a lot of extra time adding special content to this new edition of the game!" said Marco Guardia, creator of Octahedron.

Octahedron is already available on Steam for £9.99/$12.99/€12.99, on Xbox One for £9.99/$12.99/€12.99, and PlayStation 4 for £9.99/$12.99/€12.99.

The game will launch on Nintendo Switch on January 17, 2019 for £9.99/$12.99/€12.99.
