The Touryst is a blocky adventure game coming to Switch

There’s a new Switch-exclusive adventure game called The Touryst coming out from the fine folks at German developer Shin’en Multimedia. It was unveiled ahead of Gamescom 2019.

Shin’en says that you will “discover exotic islands and explore ancient monuments” and “climb into deep mines and uncover secret passages” while enjoying the “tourist life.” They say that it will be an action-adventure game “as varied as real life.”

As you can see from the announcement trailer below, The Touryst is a slick-looking game.

Here’s a description of the game directly from the developer:

You are just arriving at Monument Island. Want to go swimming? Or rather take a dive into the deep sea? Or do you want to visit the amusement arcade, do some shopping, dance at the beach party? Fancy some surfing? Or will you talk with the strange old tourist and listen what he has to say about these ancient mysterious monuments.

If you’re wondering, Shin’en is the developer behind the Nano Assault series, Fast Racing Neo, and Art of Balance.
