The Lion’s Song Roars Onto Nintendo Switch Next Month

Decide the fate of struggling artists when Mipumi’s Award-winning narrative adventure lands on the Switch

Lion's Song

Sure, the ability of games to transport players to wild fantasy worlds and immerse them in the surreal is great. After all, I’m not one to knock escapism – I love it! However, sometimes I just want to savor something a bit more human. And if you feel the same way – and happen to own a Switch – then you’re in for a treat, because Austrian indie developer Mipumi Games today announced that their episodic adventure series, The Lion’s Song, will be making its way digitally to the Nintendo Switch eShop on July 10, 2018.

Originally released on Steam, iOS, and Android last year, The Lion’s Song is a narrative adventure of hearts and minds. Set in the early 20th century, the four-part series follows a cast of fictional artists and scientists gifted with amazing skills. Each episode centers around a particular character as players help them deal with their struggles with creativity, human connections, and inspiration.

The Lion’s Song received the Best Indie Game Award at the German Developer Award 2016, along with an Honorable Mention in the Excellence in Narrative category at last year’s Independent Games Festival.

You can find the Switch announcement trailer below:

The Lion’s Song will be priced at $9.99/£9.99/€9.99 on the Nintendo eShop. Will you be adding it to your library next month? Sound off in the comments section and let us know.
