GRIS Comes To Nintendo Switch On December 13

GRIS is coming to the Nintendo Switch on December 13. It features an amazing art style with fluid animation and could be something truly memorable. Check out the trailer and the information below on it and other Nindies on the way.




Brought to life through delicate art, detailed animation and an elegant original score, ethereal indie game GRIS comes to the Nintendo Switch system on Dec. 13. The new game from independent publisher Devolver Digital tells the powerful story of Gris, a young girl pained with loss who takes an emotional journey through a serene and evocative world free of danger, frustration and death. Light puzzles, platforming sequences and optional skill-based challenges will reveal themselves to Gris as she grows emotionally, unveiling new paths for her to explore with her new abilities.

Launching just in time for the holidays, GRIS is one of many independent games available in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch. Covering nearly every genre, these critically acclaimed games from independent developers, or Nindies, offer something for every type of player. Lucky Nintendo Switch owners who receive a Nintendo eShop gift card as a present this year can redeem it to stock up on some of these widely loved games.
