Sometimes a video game needs to be a deep, almost artistic experience, one that immerses you in a new world and takes you on an interactive journey that no other medium can replicate. Other times, it needs to be frikkin’ awesome, and blow players away with an amazing soundtrack and totally sweet anime-inspired fights. Furi is like the latter, and it’s launching soon on the Nintendo Switch.
According to an announcment from its developers, Furi will launch on the Nintendo Switch sometime in early 2018. It will feature all the content, updates, and patches the game has received since it launched on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in 2016, and will be priced at $20 (roughly R280).
Yeah, that’s about it really, not a whole lot to the story. The game was designed by Takashi Okazaki, the writer and illustrator of Afro Samurai, and developed by The Game Bakers. The game is essentially a boss-rush that tasks players with fighting a series of distinct enemies to escape from a massive prison. It’s badass, the soundtrack is incredible, and the gameplay is challenging and satisfying.
And just so you know, the name rhymes with “Fury”, not “Furry”. I felt I had to clarify that.
