ABZÛ, the nautical adventure game by Giant Squid Studios, will be coming to Nintendo Switch this month.

The Switch has become a bastion for smaller, indie-focused titles, with ABZÛ fitting right in with Nintendo’s affinity for surprise ports. The news was confirmed by the game’s official Twitter with a release date of November 29.

The title launched back in 2016 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, taking place in a wide ocean, where players need to explore, forming an organic story. Players, assuming the role of a diver, can grab onto and interact with a variety of underwater fauna, whilst solving environmental-based puzzles.

OnlySP reviewed the game back when it released and, judging by the positive review of the game’s formless nature, the project should fit right in on the Switch.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
