Heaven’s Vault Will Be Coming to the Nintendo Switch This Month

Heaven’s Vault will be coming to the Nintendo Switch very soon. Check out the official trailer and then please come back here for more information and some thoughts on the game.

Heaven’s Vault is coming to the Nintendo Switch eshop on January 28th!

Here’s how the game is described via its press site:

“Uncover a forgotten past and decipher a lost language in this open-world narrative adventure game.

Join archaeologist Aliya Elasra and her robot sidekick Six as they investigate The Nebula, an ancient network of scattered moons.

Discover lost sites, freely explore ancient ruins and translate inscriptions to reveal the secrets of the Nebula’s past.

Decipher an entire hieroglyphic language in a puzzle mechanic with a unique narrative twist: every inscription you find has a meaning, and the translations you choose feed back into story, changing Aliya’s ideas about what she’s found. But be warned – you won’t ever be sure if your translations are correct.

The game has a non-linear design that allows you to approach the story in any order; backed up by inkle’s narrative engine, ink, which remembers every choice you make and every path you follow – and every path you don’t – and feeds that into what happens next.

A diverse cast of characters will react to everything you say, and change their approach depending on how you treat them. Some are kind, some are cautious, and others are out to con you – you have been warned!

Totally unique art style, blending beautiful 3D environments and hand-drawn 2D art.
Learn and translate the ancient language of the Ancients.
Interact with a large cast of characters who remember everything you say.
Journey through an open world where every action counts.
Sail on the rivers of the Nebula – and into its depths.
Be a thief, an explorer, a detective, a seeker, a saviour, a rogue…”

Wow. I have to say that I’m blown away by this game’s concept and the footage of the game. I love the idea of trying to figure out a language, piecing together a mystery and having it effect the game. The choices you make in the mystery and talking to other characters are very important. I love Adventure games like this.

The sailing aspect of the game looks neat too.

And you have to love the visual style of this game!

Heaven’s Vault is coming to the Nintendo Switch on January 28th! Will you be picking it up?
