CIRCLE Entertainment and developer yeo are delighted to confirm that The friends of Ringo Ishikawa will arrive on the Nintendo Switch eShop on 4th April; at launch it’ll have a 10% discount, so for week one it’ll cost $13.49 USD / €13,49 before reverting to $14.99 USD / €14.99. Its blend of stylish pixel-based visuals, beat ‘em up action, surprising gameplay and imaginative storytelling are a perfect fit for Nintendo’s system.
The friends of Ringo Ishikawa is a game that wants you to ‘feel the story’; you experience the world and its activities as you see fit as you guide the protagonist through his final term at High School. Below is a summary from yeo:
“You should play it if:
1) You’re fond of good stories with strong dialogue (especially about growing up).
2) You’re a fighting game enthusiast eager to try out some new mechanics.
3) You’re into some yakuza-delinquent aesthetics.
Basically, the game is an existential open world beat ’em up with some school-sim elements. It has a little of everything: a town to explore, a day-night cycle, NPCs on schedules, battle grinding, school grinding, mini-games (ping-pong, billiards, video poker, a videogame console with one game…) and so on.”
