Rabi-Ribi Announced For Switch, Launches October 17 In Japan

One of the cult classics of the metroidvania genre is finally heading to Nintendo Switch!

Mediascape just revealed that Rabi-Ribi will be hitting the Japanese Switch eShop on 17 October 2019 – for 2,700 yen. The release will support multiple languages such as Japanese, English, Spanish, French, German, Korean, and Chinese.

Rabi-Ribi originally launched for the PC in 2016, and follows the adventures of Erina – a rabbit turned into a rabbit girl. In order to restore her back to normal, players will have to venture through a massive world with 9 main regions, over 40 boss battles, and much more!

Check out the Switch announcement trailer below, along with further details.

There never quite seem to be enough bunny girls in the world, so here is another for you aficionados out there.

This 2D side-scrolling exploration platformer follows the adventure of Erina, whose humdrum life as a regular rabbit is turned upside-down when she finds herself in an unknown world and turned into a human (with rabbit ears)!

Along the way she meets the cheerful pink-haired fairy, Ribbon, who mysteriously chooses to stay by Erina’s side.

These unwitting heroes embark together on their quest to restore Erina’s life to normalcy, but who knows what troubles lurk, waiting for them…
