Rime was re-announced recently as a multi-platform title for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC with a release date set for May 2017. But the game will also be getting a retail version, not being a digital-only game.
Both Amazon (PS4, Xbox One) and Best Buy (PS4, Xbox One) are listing physical PlayStation 4 and Xbox One SKUs for $29.99. Amazon, specifically, lists a May 9 release date, though an official date has yet to be announced. A physical Switch SKU is likely also planned, however retailers probably won’t begin listing Switch games until after Nintendo’s January 12 event.
Reported by Gematsu, listings on Amazon for Rime came out for the PS4 and Xbox One versions for $29.99. While no retail SKU released for the Switch version, one will likely release and it’s not listed only because other Switch games couldn’t up for pre-order yet. This is great news hearing that this promising indie adventure will be preserved through a retail version.
