Description

We’re thrilled to announce that Another World, Eric Chahi's cult classic, is now available on Nintendo Switch! We have worked closely with original creator and industry visionary Eric Chahi on the Switch version, staying true to the original feel of the game and its deep sci-fi universe setting. Also known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World in Japan, Another World made its debut in 2012 in the prestigious MoMA in New York and was among the first 14 games selected by the museum for having made history. It is considered one of the most essential video games ever made, inspiring numerous video games creators of outstanding titles such as Ico and Metal Gear Solid.

History

Another World tells the remarkable tale of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young and rather talented physicist. While working on an experiment using a particle accelerator, a lightning bolt strikes his lab, causing an unforeseen particle fusion. The accompanying explosion opens a hole in the fabric of space and time, teleporting Lester to a barren, alien planet. Players lead Lester through a series of dangerous environments, battling alien soldiers and wild creatures while solving unique and creative puzzles in order to survive.

Features

  • Switch back and forth in real time between the original and HD graphics
  • 3 difficulty modes
