Merge Games and Infuse Studio have announced that the emotional exploration-puzzle adventure Spirit of the North will arrive on Nintendo Switch and PC on May 7.
Spirit of the North is a single-player 3rd-person adventure game inspired by the breath-taking and mysterious landscapes of Iceland. The story takes root from various pieces of Nordic folklore.
In the game, players will get to solve various puzzles and speculate on the meaning of a lost ancient civilization. With the help of their new companion, they will try to shed light on the ruins of the past and overcome obstacles.
Players take on the role of an ordinary red fox whose story becomes entwined with the guardian of the Northern Lights, a female spirit fox. As they journey over the mountains and under red-stained skies, players will discover more about their companion and land left in ruin.
They will traverse tundra, glaciers, and mountainsides as they follow a foreboding scarlet trail that paints the sky.
Spirit of the North will be priced at $24.99 for Nintendo Switch and $19.99 on PC.
Pre-orders will be available on the Nintendo eShop from April 30, alongside a 20% introductory discount, running from April 30 until May 20 (US) and May 21 (elsewhere). There will also be a Steam discount of 15% from May 7 to May 14.
