Light Tracer coming to Switch

Everything the light traces is yours

Light Tracer, which was originally a VR game, is making its way to Switch. We don't have release date info yet, but we do know that it'll be demoed at Tokyo Sandbox 2019. You can check out info on the game below, which comes from the VR release on Steam.

If we need to describe this game in brief sentence, this game is like an evil soul living in a cute body. I'll tell you why:

--How long does it take to beat the game? Half an hour?

C'mon, what can you do within 30 minutes in this game, maybe clear the first chapter? That's only 1/8 of all the levels, and pretty much the easiest part!

--So you mean you'll keep doing the laser cat trick for 4 hours?

No kidding! Light Tracer has 8 chapters with TOTALLY DIFFERENT gameplay and machanics and puzzles!

--Hardcore??? Are you serious??? With this chibi character?

Don't be fooled by the visualization! It's cute, no problem, but it's not an "easy-come-and-go" thing! There are boss fights for each chapter and it feels like the battles in Legend of Zelda! It involves action, puzzle-solving and patience, which is just what a hardcore game means!

--OK, OK, I get it, it's Legend of Zelda in VR?

Sorry but you are wrong again! It's not ripping off Zelda, instead, everything here you will see is original. Just, the developers try to mix some classic feel of Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Monument Valley into VR, with their original control scheme. But you should soon see that this make the game feel even different from those classic games when you play it in VR! Honestly I don't know how to explain it well and that's the reason why there's so much misunderstanding to it. But from what everyone says after playing it, it's a game that any curious person shouldn't miss.
